Making the Easter Eggs


Lets get sewing…


Begin by printing 5 copies of the easter egg template.

Cut 24 strips 3” x 7” from the pastel fabrics (6 for each egg)


Take one print out and cut around the inner edge of the egg. Place the first strip right side up, on the reverse of the template, overlap the first line by ¼”. Flip over and sew along the drawn line, through the paper and fabric. Place the second strip in the same place, but lay it right side down.


Press over and repeat process with the third piece – see photos below












Excess fabric can be trimmed, but be careful not to cut through the template


Keep adding strips, till your egg is complete, and looks like the photo below




Trace 4 eggs onto the interfacing using the outer line of the egg template. Remove paper and fuse to interfacing.


Using the same template cut out around the outer edge, lay over you FPP (foundation paper pieced) egg and draw round it. Cut out. Repeat process to make 4 eggs in total.




Take the solid white fabric piece, and baste your eggs in place.



FMQ (free motion quilt) around each egg, twice.


Create the surround but cutting two 32” x 2 ½” strips* and two 10” x 2 ½”

*join two strips (19” long) together to create the length, by placing RST and sewing along the diagonal – shown in photo below




Join the two shorter pieces first, press seams open.

Sew the remaining two strips and press seams open.



Create the backing, by cutting various widths of fabric from your pastel FQ packs, all 12” long. Join them together till you reach 36”. Press seams open.




Baste to Vlieseline Thermolam. Quilt using your preferred method, trim excess and bind.


Your table runner is complete.
