Easy Table Runner #1

All this week, I have taken a single quilt block design and created five different table runners for you!  Each day, the single quilt block has been modified slightly to create a number of variations from a single quilt block.  You can make these table runners scrappy, if you prefer – though I used the same three colors in all five of the designs I put together for you.  These blocks are SIMPLE to make – all straight lines and no triangles, extremely beginner friendly!  If you make any of these, I’d love for you to send me a photo that I can share here on my blog!

This is the first block.  The cutting instructions are for ONE (1) block, you need FOUR (4) of these blocks to make your table runner.  All blocks are 10″ finished, 10 1/2″ unfinished.  All of the table runners have a 2″ finished border and a 1/2″ binding.  All seams are 1/4″.  All of the table runners finish out at 15″ x 45″.

  • Cut TWO (2) 5 1/2″ squares of Blue
  • Cut TWO (2) 3″ x 5 1/2″ strips of Lilac
  • Cut TWO (2) 3″ squares of Lilac
  • Cut TWO (2) 3″ squares of Purple

Sew the Lilac squares to the Purple squares first, pressing toward the darkest fabric.  Next, sew the Lilac strip to your newly created Lilac and Purple strip.  Then, sew these squares to the Blue squares in rows and then sew the rows together to create your block.

For the borders and binding:

  • Cut TWO (2) 10 1/2″ strips for the left and right borders
  • Cut and piece TWO (2) 44 1/2″ strips for the top and bottom borders
  • Cut enough 2 1/2″ x WOF strips to create your binding

After you have your borders sewn on, create your quilt sandwich with your table runner top, batting and backing fabric and quilt as desired.  Attach the binding to complete your project!

Here’s the finished table runner:
