Metallic Starry Night- Table Runner

Project by Michelle Roberts AKA CreativeBlonde

This table runner can be adjusted depending on the length of your table, by adding or removing a star block.

Size: Approx. 45” x 8”

Begin by cutting your fabric pieces to make the stars

  • (8) 2 ½ x 2 ½” squares from star fabric

  • (8) 2 ½ x 2 ½” squares from white/gold fabric

  • (8) 2 ½ x 2 ½” squares from firework fabric

  • (24) 2 ½ x 2 ½” squares from white solid fabric

  • (8) 3” x 3” squares from star fabric

  • (8) 3” x 3” squares from white/gold fabric

  • (8) 3” x 3” squares from fireworks fabric

  • (24) 3” x 3” squares from white solid fabric

Let’s start making a star

Begin by taking a 3” square in star fabric and lay RST with a 3” white solid piece, mark a line across the diagonal, and sew ¼” either side of the line. Cut along the marked line. Press open, and trim to measure 2 ½” x 2 ½” (making sure the diagonal line is centred)

See photos below for step by step instructions

We can now begin to construct the star, using our new blocks and the original 2 ½” blocks we cut out.

See photos below for placement

Continue to make as 6 stars in total.

Trim each star block to 8 ¼” square.

Join them together using ¼” seam allowance.

We can now go ahead and fuse the Vlieseline x50 batting to the top runner, measuring 48” x 10”.

Cut your backing to measure 48” x 10”, I chose a solid black fabric.

Quilt your table runner, using your preferred method, I chose simple diagonal lines to achieve a patchwork effect.

Trim away excess backing fabric and wadding.

Join your binding RST to the front edge, and complete the table runner with hand sewn stitches to the reverse.
