Easy Table Runner #4

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 forth 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″.  Press toward the darkest fabric.

  • Cut FOUR (4) 3″ squares of the Purple
  • Cut FOUR (4) 3″ squares of the Lilac
  • Cut FOUR (4) 3″ x 5 1/2″ strips of the Blue

Sew the center Purple and Lilac squares to make one four-patch block.   Then, sew these blocks to the Blue strips on both left and right sides of the center four-patch.  Next, make two strips with the Lilac, Blue and Purple squares and strips.  Finally, sew these two final strips to the top and bottom of the 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:
