Quilted Table Runner with Butterfly Embroidery
This super easy table runner looks great thanks to the embroidery designs from the Butterfly Set for the small (4" x 4") and large (5" x 7") hoops.

The finished size is about 17 1/2" x 28".

You will need :
  • embroidery threads, either polyester or rayon; the choice of colors is up to you; we recommend picking colors to match the border fabric,
  • a piece of light-colored fabric measuring 10 1/2" x 21 1/2", for the central part,
  • 1/2 yard of bright floral patterned fabric, or multi-colored batik, for the borders,
  • batting,
  • fabric for backing and binding,
  • quilter's ruler,
  • rotary cutter,
  • iron.
Out of the fabric for the central part, cut out a piece measuring 10 1/2" x 21 1/2".
Out of fabric for the borders, cut
  • 2 strips measuring 4 1/2" x 21 1/2" and
  • 2 strips measuring 4 1/2" x 18 1/2".
NOTE: the seam allowance is 1/4", press the seam immediately after you made it.
Sew the long border strips to the long sides of the central part.

Sew the short border strips to the short sides of the central part.

Make print-outs of the designs from the Butterfly Set. Arrage them on the central part of the table runner.

When you like the composition, embroider the designs 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 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!
