Bleeding Heart Quilted Tablerunner with Embroidery

This table runner is adorned with stunning Bleeding Heart Flower embroidery that adds a touch of elegance and charm to any dining or coffee table.

The quilted table runner features simple piecing techniques that even beginners can follow with ease. The table runner is finished off with free-motion quilting, which adds texture and dimension to the finished piece.

Whether you are a seasoned quilter or an embroidery enthusiast looking to explore new techniques, this project is perfect for you.

The finished size of the tablerunner is about 18" x 35".

You will need :
  • embroidery threads in either polyester or rayon - we recommend matching the colors of the fabrics you are using,
  • a strip (2 1/2" x 20 1/2") of hot pink fabric;
  • about 1/2 yard of light colored fabric for embroidery background (we used a very pale blush pink);
  • about a yard of green fabric for the borders and binding,
  • light-weight cut-away embroidery stabilizer;
  • batting;
  • fabric for the backing,
  • quilter's ruler;
  • rotary cutter;
  • iron;
  • #12 universal needle;
  • quilting threads (the colors of the fabrics you use);
  • #12-#14 quilting needle.
Cutting :
Out of hot pink fabric, cut a strip measuring 2 1/2" x 20 1/2".

Out of light-colored fabric for the embroidery background, cut
  • 2 strips measuring 5 1/2" x 20 1/2" and
  • 2 strips measuring 5 1/2" x 12 1/2".
Out of green fabric for the borders, cut
  • 2 strips measuring 3 1/2" x 30 1/2" and
  • 2 strips measuring 3 1/2" x 18 1/2".
Use the remaining green fabric for the binding.

Assembly:
Note: seam allowance is 1/4", press the seam immediately after you make it.
Sew the light-colored 5 1/2" x 20 1/2" strips to the long sides of the hot pink strip.

Embroidery:
Upload the files from the Bleeding Heart Flower Set into your embroidery machine. Select threads. It's a good idea to make a test stitch-out on a scrap of fabric before you embroider the design on a finished top.

If you have a printer and embroidery software, paper 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 them 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: first the central pink part, then with acho pattern fix the embroidery in place and add stippling among the embroidery designs, and the last quilt the borders.
