Bright Jewel Strip Pieced Table Runner Tutorial
This is another strip pieced table runner made with bright jewel colors and a tutorial to show you how to make it. The Jeweled tablerunner was originally posted in 2015.
I have another fun Jewel table runner tutorial to share with you. This one is a skinny table runner and if you are looking for a wider one then you might want to take a look at the brown and teal strip pieced table runner.
You can also download a PDF of either one or both.
Table runners are always fast and easy to make and you will be surprised how easy it is to make this table runner.
Size 12" x 44"
I picked six fabrics from the fat quarter bundle and also used muslin for the neutral strips.
- Cut each of the 6 fabrics into 4 - 1 ½ inch strips by the longest side of the fat quarter (22 inches).
- Cut the muslin into 10 - 1 inch strips the width of the fabric, then sub-cut to 20-22 inches for a total of 20 strips.
- Sew with a ¼" seam allowance. Join pieces together.
It is a good idea to sew the first two strips together and then switch directions for the next strip. Change back and forth when adding each strip. This will keep your piece from bowing.
Make 4 sections. Press after adding each strip. Your section should measure 9" tall.
Square up each section and cut 2 - 9" x 9" squares. You will have a total of 8.
Cut each square in half diagonally.
Cut each block exactly the same way.
Take 4 pieces and lay them out as shown below.
Piece the sections together.
Make 4 blocks.
Add a 1" muslin sashing between the blocks.
Add backing and batting and quilt as desired. I cut some additional 2 ½" strips from the leftover fat quarters to use for my binding.
My daughter was here last weekend and claimed this table runner. She just redid her bedroom in these colors and this will work perfectly on her bedroom dresser. She would like 2 small mats for her end tables. I think I have just enough leftovers to make them.
