Mini Falling Charms Quilted Table Runner
21″ x 33″
My mini falling charms quilted table runner is finished! When I first started the mini falling charms quilt project the other day, I wasn’t sure how big I was going to make it. Since I had two of the mini charm square packs I decided to make it big enough to fit our coffee table in the living room.
You can also see my Box Block pillows, Serendipity table runner and some music pillows in browns that I forgot to blog about! I’ll have to get a post up on them in that color. There are tutorials for all of them.
Here is what I had left from two mini charm packs, I used everything but 7 blocks! These are already in my fabric stash drawer of 2½” squares.
I ended up making a tablerunner that has 11 rows with 7 blocks in each row for a total of 77 blocks. You can make the mini charms table runner any size you like…..narrower or longer.
If you use a 5″ square charm pack and cut the squares into 2½” squares, you would have enough to make a baby quilt that would be 33″ x 42″.
We recently bought a new table and four chairs for our deck so we can eat or play cards out there. I took this photo this morning and it was a little too dark and washed out. Notice Iggy in the back?
We kept looking for a square high table and chairs but couldn’t find anything we really liked that didn’t cost a fortune. We finally decided that a short table would work okay and picked this up at Menards. I am so glad that Builder Bob likes to “build” things as it was in a million pieces! He does great work!
I really like this photo of the mini charms quilted table runner hanging on the deck rail.
I had mentioned that I didn’t have any yardage that went with the collection of mini charm squares but I found a piece of turquoise that I thought matched perfectly. I love shopping in my own stash!
I did a simple meandering on the background fabric and a little organic wiggle line through the mini charm blocks. I would have had this finished sooner but…..I didn’t check my back when I first started quilting and the tension was off. Thank goodness for a seam ripper!
This photo is a little washed out and gives the table runner a vintage look. It is hanging on Sadie’s deck fence. The temperature and humidity have really dropped today and it will be a perfect day to be outside!
If you missed the tutorial on the Falling Charms quilt, be sure and read it and get the free black/white drawing so you can color in your fabrics! If you make a quilt, tablerunner or any project using the Falling Charms block please be sure and share it here on Linky Tuesday which happens every week.

Have you shopped at Amazon during the Prime deals? I did and have a fun things coming tomorrow. I bought a backdrop that looks like a brick wall that will be fun for photographing my quilts. I also bought some batting to make a jelly roll rug. Have you made one?
