Easy Table Runner #5

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 fifth 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 TWO (2) 3″ x 10 1/2″ strips of Blue
  • Cut TWO (2) 3″ x 10 1/2″ strips of Purple
  • Cut TWO (2) 3″ x 5 1/2″ strips of Blue
  • Cut TWO (2) 3″ x 5 1/2″ strips of Purple
  • Cut ONE (1) 5 1/2″ square of Lilac

Sew the Purple and Blue shorter strips to the top and bottom of the Lilac center square.   Then, sew the longer Blue and Purple strips to the left and right side of your center.

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:

Share and Enjoy!

      Phyllis – I would suggest you click on the TITLES of each of the patterns, so that only that pattern shows up on your screen. Then do a print preview and only print the page(s) that have the pattern on them. Hope this helps!
