Finished quilted runner with red-colored embroidery


You will need :
  • red embroidery threads either polyester or rayon,
  • about 1 yard of white fabric,
  • about 1/4 yard of green (or red, if you want a monochrome color scheme) fabric,
  • red fabric for the binding,
  • light-weight cut-away embroidery stabilizer,
  • fabric for the backing,
  • batting,
  • quilter's ruler,
  • rotary cutter,
  • iron,
  • #12 universal needle,
  • #12-#14 quilting needle.
Cutting:
Out of the white fabric, cut
  • 2 strips measuring 4 1/2" x 20 1/2",
  • 4 strips measuring 1 1/2" x 5 1/2",
  • 4 strips measuring 5 1/2" x 11 1/2",
  • 1 piece measuring 8 1/2" x 11 1/2" and
  • 2 pieces measuring 14 1/2" x 11 1/2".

Out of green (or red) fabric, cut
  • 2 strips measuring 1 1/2" x 10 1/2", and
  • 4 strips measuring 1 1/2" x 11 1/2".

Cut the red fabric on binding strips. We usually make them 2 1/2" wide and the length of the width of the fabric. You'll need 3 strips 42" long each, if your fabric is narrower, cut more strips.
Assembly:
Note: seam allowance is 1/4", press the seam immediately after you make it.
Sew the white 1 1/2" x 5 1/2" strips to the short edges of the green 1 1/2" x 10 1/2" strips, to get 2 new strips.

Sew the green 1 1/2" x 11 1/2" strips to the one edge of the white 14 1/2" x 11 1/2" piece. Repeat with the other green and white pieces to get 2 parts.

Sew the white 5 1/2" x 11 1/2" strips to the green strip of each part. Mark them as part 2 and set aside for the time being.

Sew the remaining 2 green 1 1/2" x 11 1/2" strips to the left and right edges of the white 8 1/2" x 11 1/2" piece. Then sew the remaining white 5 1/2" x 11 1/2" strips to the green strips. Mark the piece as central part.

Sew parts 1 and 2 together as shown on the picture below - the green strips form a right angle.

Sew the new pieces to the central part so that the green strips on the central part form a straight line with the green strips of the pieces.

Embroidery:
Mark the position of the embroidery on the top. If you have a printer and embroidery software, print-outs of the designs can be helpful. If you do not, you can cut out rectangles of the same size as the designs and arrange them on the fabric to determine the position of the embroidery.

Stabilize the chosen area. Hoop the fabric tightly and 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 quilt.
