Daylily Quilted Tablerunner
We put together this quilted table runner from scraps. The results are rather charming!

We used designs from the Daylily Set.

The finished size of the table runner is about 17" x 42".

You will need :
  • embroidery threads, either polyester or rayon. Choose colors that match the scraps of fabric,
  • scraps of fabrics in shades of yellow and red/orange, you'll need strips 1 1/2" wide and of different lengths from 2 1/2" up to 10".
  • 1/2 yard of light-colored (pale yellow, light cream, off-white) fabric for the embroidered part of the table runner,
  • fabric for the backing and binding,
  • light-weight embroidery stabilizer,
  • backing,
  • iron,
  • quilting threads matching the colors of the fabrics.
Cutting:
Out of the light-colored fabric, cut 2 squares measuring 4 1/2" x 4 1/2".

Use the remaining piece, which will measure about 18" wide and 34"-36" long for the main part of the table runner.
Out of different scraps cut
  • 8 strips measuring 1 1/2" x 2 1/2",
  • 4 strips measuring 1 1/2" x 3 1/2" and
  • 4 strips measuring 1 1/2" x 4"
We'll cut the remaining strips while assembling the top. It's important not just to get the correct length, but also to match the colors of the strips, and it's easier to do this while working on the quilt.

Assembly of the Colored Parts
Note: Seam allowance is 1/4", press every seam immediately after you make it.
Sew the 2 1/2" strips along the long sides into two blocks of four strips.

To make the left scrap block, cut strips 1 1/2" wide and sew them together in the following order, aligning the left edges: 8" - 8" - 8" - 9" - 9" - the 9 1/2" block with white square - 11" - 11" - 10"- 10" - 10" - 10" - 9" - 8" - 7" - 6" - 5" - 4" - 3"
To make the right scrap block, cut strips 1 1/2" wide and sew them together in the following order, aligning the right edge: 3"- 3"- 5" - 5"- 7" - 7" - 9" - 9" - 9" - 10"- 10" - the 9" unit with the square - 9" - 9" - 8" - 8" - 8" - 8".
Position both scrap parts on the 18" x 34"-36" light-colored piece. Align the left edges (for the first scrap part) and the right edges (for the second scrap part). Pin.
Working with one scrap part at a time, on the cutting mat, with a rotaty cutter, make a freehand wave cut through both layers.

Pin the curves together.

Stitch the curve together. Work slowly, checking the position of the fabrics. Stitch width is 1mm, seam allowance 1/4".

Repeat for the second scrap part.
Embroidery:
Mark the position of the lily designs on the light-colored part of the table runner.
Upload the files from the Daylily Set to your embroidery machine.
Stabilize the fabric for each design one at a time with light-weight cut-away stabilizer.
Embroider the designs, using the thread color of your choice.
Cut away the stabilizer around the embroidery. Press.
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.
We quilted in a free-motion style all over the table runner.
Press with heavy steam. Square the quilt. Finish the raw edges with the binding.
Have fun!
