Rose Tablerunner

This beautiful quilted table runner makes a great centerpiece for any room in your house. By adding a sleeve, you can easily convert it into a wall hanging. The table runner uses only one design, the Blooming Tea Roses, offered in three color schemes. It's perfect for Valentine's Day.

The finished size of the tablerunner is about 18" x 40".

We used about 1/2 yard of pale green fabric for the embroidered squares, 1/2 yard of black patterned fabric for the borders and binding and 1/8 yard of white fabric for the border. You'll also need a piece of batting and backing.

All measurements are based on 42" wide fabric and include 1/4"seam allowance.

Cutting:

Out of pale green fabric, cut 3 squares measuring 10 1/2" x 10 1/2".

Out of white fabric, cut 6 strips 1" wide and the length of the width of the fabric.
Subcut the strips into: 8 strips 10 1/2" long, 4 strips 11" long, 4 strips 11 1/2" long and 4 1" x 1" squares.

Out of black patterned fabric cut 4 strips measuring 1 1/2" wide and the length of the width of the fabric. Subcut the strips into: 2 strips 10 1/2" long, 4 strips 11" long and 4 strips 14 1/2" long.
Out of the same fabric cut a strip 1" wide and 6" long. subcut it into 4 rectangles measuring 1" x 1 1/2".
Out of the same patterned fabric cut 3 strips measuring 2 1/2" wide and the length of the width of the fabric. Subcut the strips into: 2 strips 14 1/2" long, 2 strips 40 1/2" long. These are the outer borders.

For the binding cut 3 strips 2" wide and the length of the width of the fabric.

Assembly:

Attach six of the 1" x 10 1/2" white strips to the upper and lower edges of the green squares.

Place the squares in a row for convenience. Attach 2 of the 1" x 11" white strips to the left edge of the first square and to the right edge of the third square.

Attach the two 1 1/2" x 10 1/2" patterned strips to the upper and lower edges of the middle block.

Attach the 1 1/2" x 11" patterned strips to the upper and lower edges of the first and third blocks.

Attach the two remaining 1" x 10 1/2" white strips to the upper and lower edges of the middle block.

Attach the 1" x 11" white strips to the upper and lower edges of the first and third blocks.

Sew the blocks together, incorporating 1 1/2" x 14 1/2" strips between each two blocks. Attach a strip to each end of the row.

Using the 1" x 1" white squares, 1" x 1 1/2" patterned rectangles and 1" x 11 1/2" white strips, assemble 2 strips as shown below:

Attach the new strips to the left and right edges of the tablerunner.

Attach the 2 1/2" x 14 1/2" patterned strips to the right and left edges. Then attach the 2 1/2" x 40 1/2" strips to the upper and lower edges.

Embroidery:

Stabilize the green squares with iron-on cut-away stabilizer. Make the embroidery. Cut away the excess stabilizer.

You can also use polyester craft felt instead of the stabilizer. In this case we recommend to baste the quilt top to the felt in the ditch along the seams. After the embroidery is finished, rip the baste and cut away the excess felt around the embroidery.

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 three layers together with 1" pins and start quilting. We quilted along the lines of the embroidery and made stippling all over the quilt.

After the quilting is finished, press the work with heavy steam and square the work -- all corners should be 90 degrees and opposite sides should be of the same length.
Finish the raw edges with the binding.

The quilt is ready. Enjoy!

Happy Stitching!
