Patchwork Christmas Table Runner
Project by Nicola Hills
You will need:
Fabric for 20 Red Squares - 56
Green 1/2 square triangles - 56
Red 1/2 square triangles - 56
Woodland 1/2 square triangles
Totalling: 188 pieces.
2.5” strip to make an outside border
Backing fabric - Bosal Fibre and Foam 100% Cotton Batting (Each of my blocks were 12” Trimmed & Finished)
Cutting Equipment - Rotary Cutter/ Scissors
Template - Ruler - Cutting Mat
Basic Sewing Kit
The table runner is made up of 5 blocks.
Here is 1 patch of 4 - 4 patches of 4 = 1 block
For 1 block you will need: 4 Red Squares - 8 Green 1/2 square triangles - 8 Red 1/2 square triangles - 8 Woodland 1/2 square triangles
Follow the piecing steps in the photos below. Make sure you press down the seams so the connecting one sits neatly.
Half Square Triangle: Draw a diagonal line from one corner to the other.
Sew 1/4” down each side of that central line.
Cut down the central line, iron open the seams flat.
Steps 1 - 9 show how to create 1 patch of 4
Top Tip- Finger press the seam on each piece you join together it will make it easier to sew and position the next pieces. Pin every joining seam to get that perfect match!
Step 10 - 14 show how to create 4 patches of 4 which when pieced together make the complete block.
Repeat until you have all 5 blocks completed.
Continue to Piece all 5 blocks together, pin those seams!
I added a 2.5” border all around the outside before adding the Batting and backing.
When all together pin or clip to secure the layers and top stitch/quilt to bind the layers.
Trim before adding the binding.
