Christmas Tree Tablerunner

This festive table runner is quick and simple to put together. We used the design Applique Christmas Tree Ornament for the commercial (8" x 12") hoop.

The finished size of the table runner is about 16" x 48".



You will need :

  • embroidery threads (either rayon or polyester),
  • light-weight cut-away stabilizer,
  • about 3/4 yard of red cotton fabric,
  • scraps of green fabrics,
  • 1 fat quarter each of yellow/gold and green fabric for the applique,
  • batting,
  • fabric for the backing,
  • binding,
  • quilting thread,
  • quilter's ruler and rotary cutter, or pencil and scissors.

Cutting:

Out of red fabric, cut 2 squares measuring about 19" x 19", or large enough to be hooped in your largerst hoop. After embroidery these squares will be trimmed to 16 1/2" x 16 1/2".

Out of red fabric, cut 32 squares measuring 2 1/2" x 2 1/2".

Out of scraps of green fabrics, cut 32 squares measuring 2 1/2" x 2 1/2".

Embroidery:

Upload the file of the Applique Christmas Tree Ornament into your machine. Stabilize the red squares with light-weight cut-away stabilizer and embroider the file on the fabric. The file contains the instuctions on how to make a 3D ornament. Follow steps 1 through 9 of the instructions, but place the applique fabric on the top of the hoop only. You do not need to change the bobbin threads because this applique is one-sided.

After the stitch-out is done, trim the stitch-outs to 16 1/2" x 16 1/2" squares.

Assembly of the Top:

Note: seam allowance is 1/4", press each seam after you made it.

Sew the 2 1/2" red and green squares into 8 strips, 4 red and 4 green squares per strip:

Quilting and Finishing:

Now place the backing on a flat surface (table) face down. Cover with batting. Spread your working piece over it.

Pin all three layers together with 1" pins and start quilting. We quilted in a freemotion style all over the tablerunner.


After the quilting is finished, press the work with heavy steam and square the work -- all corners should be 90 degrees and opposite sides should be of the same length.

You can leave the tablerunner with a recangular shape.

If you want it to have our shape, measure 3" along both sides of each corner, mark the place. With a rular connect both marks, draw a diagonal, cut along this diagonal.


Finish the raw edges with the binding.


Enjoy!
