Winter Holidays Tablerunner with Embroidery
This table runner is super easy to piece, embroider and quilt. It's perfect for beginners in all these skills. The embroidery designs used are from the Christmas Tree Doodles and Winter Reindeer Set. The designs are airy and feature only 3 colors; they are quick and easy to embroider.

The finished size of the tablerunner is about 17" x 40", but you can easily adjust it to the size you need.

Finished quilted tablerunner with 3 strips of fabric and embroidery.
You will need :
  • embroidery threads either polyester or rayon,
  • royal blue fabric, either solid or marbled,
  • holiday-themed patterned fabric for the central strip and binding (we used royal blue with gold and silver stars and motifs),
  • batting and fabric for the backing,
  • light-weight cut-away embroidery stabilizer,
  • quilter's ruler,
  • rotary cutter,
  • iron,
  • #12-14" quilting thread,
  • #12 universal needle,
  • quilting and sewing threads of matching colors.
Cutting:
Out of the royal blue fabric, cut 2 strips 8" wide and the length of the width of the fabric, about 40"-42".

Out of print fabric, cut 1 strip 3 1/2" wide and the length of the width of the fabric, about 40"-42".

Use the remaining patterned fabric for the binding.

Assembly:
Note: seam allowance is 1/4", press the seam immediately after you make it.
Sew the patterned strip between 2 royal blue strips.

Embroidery:
Mark the position of the embroidery on the blue strips. 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. Try to position the embroidery patterns closer to the central strip because after quilting you'll have to square the work and up to 1" of the outer edges might be have to be cut away.

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.
