I am back at Benartex's blog, Sew In Love With Fabric, to share another fun holiday tutorial using Amanda Murphy's Sparkle line for their Deck the Halls hop! Today I'm sharing a fun table runner pattern!
You will need to make three 12 inch finished (12.5 inch unfinished) blocks for a table runner. For each block you will need:
Four (4) - 2 1/2 inch squares in your outer color (green shown in the tutorial)
Four (4) - 3 3/8 inch squares in your outer color (green shown in the tutorial)
One (1) - 4 1/2 inch square in your center color (teal and green stripe shown in the tutorial)
Four (4) - 3 inch squares in your star point color (red and grey print shown in the tutorial)
Four (4) - 2 1/2 inch background fabric squares
Four (4) - 2 1/2 inch x 4 1/2 inch background fabric rectangles
Four (4) - 3 inch background squares
Using your 2 1/2 inch squares and 2 1/2 inch x 4 1/2 inch rectangles to make the corner units as shown below. Make four.
Cut each of your 3 inch squares in half diagonally once. Arrange four triangles around each 3 3/8 inch square as shown below and sew together to make four square in a square units. Pay attention to the arrangement of your outer triangles -- these will form your star points! If necessary, trim your blocks to 4 1/2 inch square.
Arrange your corner units, square-in-a-square units, and center square as shown below. Sew together in rows, then sew your rows together.
Make three total Star of Wonder blocks.
From your background also cut:
Four (4) strips 1 1/2 inches x 12 1/2 inches
Two (2) strips 1 1/2 inches x WOF
Lay out your blocks and background strips as shown below and sew together for your table runner top.
Quilt and bind as desired.
I love how perfectly festive it is!
You can use this basic table runner pattern with any 12 inch finished blocks (12.5 inches unfinished), so if you have your own favorite blocks, you can switch them up!
