Quilted Table Runner

We’re so pleased to welcome Anorina Morris from Samelia’s Mum here today! Join her as she puts together this lovely quilted table runner.

Entwined: Table Runner

Finished quilt measures approximately 23” x 41.5”

A seam allowance of ¼ inch is included throughout. Requirements are based on fabric 112cm (42” wide).

Materials Needed:

Assembly:

Place a 2.5” solid square on 2 diagonal corners of each of the 32 charm squares.

Draw a diagonal pencil line across each solid square (optional) and then sew the solid fabric squares to the charm squares (per the diagram below).

Press well.

Sew the 2 short border strips to either end of the runner top.

Press well.

Sew the 2 long border strips to either side of the runner top.

Press well.

Quilting:

Piece the backing if required.

Lay the backing fabric right side down on a hard surface and use masking tape to secure it, ensuring the fabric is taut but not distorted.

Layer the batting square over it, then the well pressed runner top.

Baste the 3 layers together with safety pins.

Quilt as desired.

(I used a free motion meandering pattern all over the quilt)
