I recently finished this fast and easy quilted Six Square table runner that is perfect for springtime or any time of the year.
I bet you are like me and have one….or two mini charm packs sitting around that you can’t figure out what to do with. Let me show what to do with them!
6 Square Table Runner Tutorial
Let’s make the 6 Square Table Runner tutorial!
This is actually my first post since I moved my website from Blogspot to WordPress! Hope you enjoy it here!
Well this table runner is the perfect way to use those charm squares! Here is what you’ll need:
- 1 mini charm pack
- Background fabric
- Fabric for your binding
- Backing fabric
I did all my piecing and free motion quilting on my vintage 15-91 Singer sewing machine. My lines get a little wiggly but I’m okay with that.
Someone asked what was the difference between a Singer 15-91 and a 15-90. They are both fantastic workhorses, the 15-90 has a belt and the 15-91 is gear driven.
I don’t know how your eyes are but I have to use a magnifying glass to read the instructions in my original manuals. Print out the pdf pages and make it easy to read!
The colors outside are so beautiful right now! The Red Bud trees are in full bloom.
If you have noticed changes on my blog it is because I have moved to a self-hosted site and I’m using WordPress. So far I am really, really liking it but boy do I have a lot to learn!
Right now I am putting together a newsletter that I plan on posting once a week…..I’m not sure which day yet. It will list the blog posts from that week and I plan on adding some helpful links and goodies to it.
I am really hoping you will sign up for my newsletter and……I sure hope I have all the bugs worked out of it! Anyway, if you sign up you will receive the pattern for this cute little 6 Square table runner plus I also have a free resource library that contains other free quilt patterns and printables.
6 Square Table Runner Tutorial
14″ x 36″
- One Mini Charm Pack or 42 – 2½-inch squares of prints from your stash
- ½ yard cream fabric
- ¼ yard binding (your fabric choice)
- ½ yard backing
- 18″ x 40″ backing
- Cut the cream fabric into 42 – 2½-inch squares
- Cut the cream fabric into 8 – 1½-inch x 12½-inch strips
- Cut the cream fabric into 2 – 1½-inch x 36½-inch strips
- Cut the binding fabric into 3 – 2½-inch strips
Always use a ¼-inch seam allowance.
- Sew a print square to a cream square
- Make 6 sets for each block section
- Press toward the prints
- Make 7 sections that measure 4½-inch x 12½-inch
Join the blocks together with the 1½-inch by 12½-inch strips as shown below.
Continue joining the sections together and also add strips to the ends. Measure your table runner and add the 1½-inch x 36½-inch strips.
If you would like a wider table runner, just add wider borders.
Quilt as desired, I just did simple straight stitch rows about a ½-inch apart.
If you make this table runner, please be sure to share a photo of it with me!
