Thanksgiving Turkey Table Runner
For this lovely table runner, we used designs from the Wild Turkey Set for the large hoop (5" x 7").

The finished size of the table runner is about 16" x 54", but you can easily adjust it to the size you need. It's super easy both to piece and to embroider.



You will need :
  • embroidery threads according to the JPG color card of the designs,
  • light-weight cut-away stabilizer,
  • 1/2 yard of light-colored fabric for the background,
  • 1/2 yard of fall-colored patterned fabric for the borders and binding,
  • fabric for the backing,
  • batting,
  • #12 universal sewing needle,
  • #14 quilting needle,
  • quilting threads of matching colors,
  • rotary cutter,
  • quilter's ruler,
  • iron.
Cutting:
Out of light-colored fabric, cut 6 squares measuring 11" x 11".

Out of patterned fabric, cut
  • 2 strips measuring 1 1/2" x 10 1/2",
  • 2 strips measuring 3 1/2" x 16 1/2" and
  • 2 strips measuring 3 1/2" x 50 1/2".
Note: If there is not enough width in the fabric for the 50 1/2" long strip, cut 4 strips 3 1/2" and the width of the fabric and sew them together in pairs. Cut away 50 1/2" long piece from each pair, use the remaining lemgth to for the 16 1/2" long strips.

Use the remaining patterned fabric for the binding.
Embroidery:
Stabilize the center of one of the 11" x 11" squares with light-weight cut-away stabilizer. Hoop it tightly.

Upload the first embroidery file from the Wild Turkey Set into the machine and embroider it.
Embroider the remaining 3 designs.
Press the stitch-outs and trim them to 8 1/2" wide and 10 1/2" high rectangles.
Assembly of theTop:
Note: Seam allowance is 1/4", press each seam to the darker fabric as soon as you make it.
Sew the stitch-outs together in pairs. Open and press the seams flat.

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 layers together with 1" pins and start quilting. We quilted in a free motion style all over the table runner.
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!
