Rose Applique Table Runner

This beautiful summer table runner is a real eye-catcher, and what's best, you can make it quickly and easily. It took us a weekend to finish it, embroidery and all.

We used the applique designs from the Rose and Leaf Applique Set.

The finished size of the tablerunner is about 15" x 44". We used 1 yard of green patterned fabric, about 1/4 yard of light cream fabric and scraps of pink, rose and green fabrics for the applique. You will also need low-loft batting and fabric for the backing (about 17" x 46").

For applique you can use light- to medium-weight iron-on cut-away stabilizer. If you want your applique to stand out, you can use either polyester felt or low-loft batting instead of the stabilizer.

For the convenience of hooping, we cut the parts out a little bit larger than the final product will be.

Out of the cream fabric, cut a rectangle measuring 8 1/2" to 9" wide by 29" long.

Out of green fabric, cut a rectangle measuring 8 1/2" to 9" wide by 29" long and two rectangles measuring 7 1/2" wide and 17" to 18"long.

Out of the rest of the green fabric, cut out the binding: you'll need 3 strips 2 1/2" wide and as long as the width of the fabric (40-42").

Assemble the top as shown on the diagram below. Seam allowance is 1/4".

Print out snapshots of the Rose Applique designs. Arrange them on the top in a semi-circle over the border between the two contrasting fabrics.

Make the embroidery either on iron-on cut-away stabilizer, felt, or low-loft batting. Whichever you use, cut it away after each fragment.

After the embroidery is finished, make a sandwich out of the backing, batting and top, and pin all three layers together. Quilt in a free-motion style. Press with heavy steam. Square the piece and cut it to the final size. Finish the raw edges with binding.
