Red and White Christmas Tablerunner

This Christmas-themed table runner is very easy to put together! We decorated it using the machine embroidery designs from the Christmas Poinsettia Redwork Set for the large (5" x 7") hoop.


The finished size of the embroidered table runner is about 16" x 56".

You will need :

  • embroidery threads (either rayon or polyester in dark red / burgundy color),
  • light-weight cut-away stabilizer,
  • 1/2 yard of white cotton fabric,
  • scraps of patterned red and red-and-white fabrics,
  • 1/4 yard of solid red fabric for blocks and binding,
  • batting,
  • fabric for the backing,
  • quilting thread, white and red,
  • quilter's ruler and rotary cutter, or pencil and scissors.

Cutting:

Out of white fabric, cut 3 pieces measuring 8 1/2" x 16 1/2" each.

Out of solid red fabric, cut

  • 32 squares measuring 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" and
  • 4 strips measuring 2 1/2" and the length of the width of the fabric (about 38"-40") for the binding.

Out of scraps, cut 92 squares measuring 2 1/2" x 2 1/2".

Assembly of the Top:

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

Lay out the 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" squares into eight 4x4 blocks with the solid red squares forming a diagonal.

Embroidery

Out of 10 designs in the Christmas Poinsettia Redwork Set, we used only 6. Print out the templates of the designs you'd like to use and pin them to the white parts of the tablerunner.

Upload the files you've chosen into your embroidery machine.

Stabilize each potion of the fabric with light-weight cut-away stabilizer as you go.
Embroider the files one by one.

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 all over the quilt in a free-motion style, white parts with white thread, red part with red thread.


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.


Finish the raw edges with the binding.


Enjoy!
