19″ x 45″ piece of batting
1/8 yard fabric for the binding
Finished size of the runner is 15 3/4″ x 41″.
Step 1 – cutting
~ From your solid fabric cut out:
2- 4.5″ x 15 3/4″ strips
1- 2.5″ x 15 3/4″ strip
4- 3.5″ x 16″ strips
2- 6 3/4″ x 13″ rectangles
6 3/4″x 13″ solid rectangle and arrange your patchwork rows around the solid fabric as shown in the picture. You can play around until you find the way that pleases you the most, I made all my directional prints pointing towards the center.
Take one 3.5″ x 16″ strip of solid fabric and attach it to the 16″ side of your patchwork block. It’s a good idea to use lots of pins to make sure everything lines up nicely.
Now attach the second 3.5″ x 16″ solid rectangle to the other 16″ side of your patchwork block.
This is what your block will look like. Take the other patchwork block and the two remaining 3.5″ x 16″ strips of solid fabric and attach them together the same way you did with the first block.
Now sew the two main patchwork blocks together using the 2.5″ x 15 3/4″ strip of solid fabric. Once you have your two patchwork blocks joint together, sew the two 4.5″ x 15 3/4″ rectangles to the sides of the patchwork blocks and your table runner top is all finished. This is what it will look like.
Make a quilt sandwich using your table runner top, batting, and backing. Quilt any way you like, I quilted mine with straight lines about 1/4″ apart.
Cut your binding at 2 1/4″ wide, fold in half and bind your table runner the same way you would a quilt.
Congratulations, you’re done. Now, wasn’t that easy?
I hope you’ll enjoy making your own table runner!
