Four by Four Finished Table Runner
This runner measures 18” x 52” and can be used for a table as well as a twin bed. It is based on one of my original patterns which can be found in our pattern listing under the name “Four by Four”.
I had used a multitude of blue fabrics and blue on white prints for the lighter parts. The navy blue squares are all three-dimensional and add an interesting effect. The batting used is 80/20 cotton/polyester. The blocks were straight line quilted on the diagonal of all squares. I used a single binding to reduce bulk and stitched it to the back by hand for a professional look.
Fabrics used in my table runners, center pieces and placemats are quality cottons. As batting I usually use a flat 50/50 cotton/polyester. Occasionally I also use 80/20 cotton/polyester for these items. They can be machine washed in cold water with a mild detergent and tumble dried on a low setting or dried while lying flat on a towel. Press with steam on a cotton setting. Many of these designs make also wonderful wall hangings in narrow wall spaces.
“I love to work with colours and shapes and have designed quilt patterns for the past 25 years. I am especially intrigued by the complexity of scrap quilts which combine a multitude of fabrics. I design, assemble and quilt my projects on a home sewing machine in a smoke- and pet-free environment. Piecing is done with quality cotton fabrics. Batting in quilts is Hobbs Heirloom unless otherwise noted. This batting combines the best qualities of 80% cotton and 20% polyester. For table decor I prefer to use a flat 50/50 cotton/polyester blend.”
