Are you looking for a fast and easy table runner for the holidays? The Serendipity Table Runner Tutorial might be just what you are looking for. If you don't decorate with red and green or blues and whites for the holidays, you will enjoy this tutorial. The batiks I used are from Island Batik.
Today I am guest posting on the AccuQuilt blog where you will find the tutorial for this table runner. It isn't very big and can be made in no time at all using the GO! Qube Specialty Set – Serendipity by Edyta Sitar.
Serendipity Table Runner
Finished size: 13″ x 26″
Don't have a AccuQuilt Fabric Cutter? - You could still follow the tutorial and make Quarter Square Triangles using a template, it is much faster with the AccuQuilt Fabric Cutter.
I used the following to make the table runner.
GO! Fabric Cutter:
GO! Cutting Dies:
GO! Qube Specialty Set – Serendipity by Edyta Sitar Dies used: 55750 Quarter Square Triangle - 1 11/16" finished square and 55749 Square - 1 11/16" finished square
GO! Strip Cutter-1", 1 ½", 2" with Angled Guidelines #55164
Materials Needed: I used batiks from Island Batik
- Cream print – 1 fat quarter for the squares
- Cream - scraps of assorted neutrals for quarter square triangles
- Brown - 1 fat quarter for the quarter square triangles
- Tan – ⅓ yard (includes binding)
- Backing 18" x 30"
- Batting 18" x 30"
When you use the AccuQuilt dies, it is so easy to match up your pieces. The blocks are teeny tiny....they finish at 1 11/16 inch square.
I did some simple free motion stippling using my vintage Singer sewing machine and Aurifil thread #2340. Looks like I'm getting low on that color, I used it a lot with brown and neutral fabrics.
Add the right accent and you can have a table runner that fits perfectly with any holiday.
