Table Runner

The Coastal Mist table runner is very easy to make with the AccuQuilt GO! 6" Qube set.  I used a strip set (jelly roll) for the blocks in this table runner.  I'm Connie Campbell from Freemotion by the River and I have a fun tutorial for you!

AccuQuilt GO!

  • Teal print one - Cut 8 - #9 chisels.
  • Teal print two - Cut 4 - #5 half square triangles and 8 - #8 rectangles.
  • Plum print one - Cut 4 - #9 chisels.
  • Plum print two - Cut 8 - #5 half square triangles and 16 - #8 rectangles.

Finished size 11″ x 31″

GO! Fabric Cutter: You can use any of them

GO! Cutting Dies:

Fabric:

  • 1/2 yard cream batik quilt fabric for back ground and sashing
  • 1 Strip set or Jelly roll - you could also use 4 fat quarters
  • 1/2  yard medium teal batik (this includes the binding and backing)

I am using batik fabrics from Island Batik, from the Coastal Mist collection. The wonderful thing about using batiks is that both sides look the same.

  • Sew with a 1/4" seam allowance.
  • Follow the diagram below to help piece your blocks.
  • It is so easy to match the pieces with the dog-eared corners.

If you are using a strip set - it should have two 2 1/2 inch strips of each color needed. Choose 4 complementary colors. The 2 1/2 inch strips  will easily fit on the dies.

 

Cutting the block pieces:

  • Cream: Cut a 4 1/2" strip the width of fabric - cut 12 - #8 rectangles and 12 - #2 squares.

  • Teal print one - Cut 8 - #9 chisels.
  • Teal print two - Cut 4 - #5 half square triangles and 8 - #8 rectangles.
  • Plum print one - Cut 4 - #9 chisels.
  • Plum print two - Cut 8 - #5 half square triangles and 16 - #8 rectangles.

When using the #8 rectangle die and the 2 1/2 strips,  carefully lay the fabric over just one of the rectangles on the die.

The following diagrams show you how to piece the block sections together adding a half square triangle to each chisel piece.

Add the cream #8 rectangles to each completed piece.

Each block is made from four sections. Sew them together. Each block will measure 6 1/2 inches.

The table runner uses 3 blocks. They should measure 9 1/2 inches.

  • Cream: Cut 3 - 1 1/2" strips the width of fabric using the #55164 strip cutter.
  • Sub-cut 4 - 1 1/2" x 9 1/2" strips.
  • Sew 2 of these to the center block and 1 to each of the other blocks.
  • Sub-cut 2 - 1 1/2" x 31" strips for the top and bottom.

  • Layer your backing and batting – quilt as desired.
  • I did free motion stipple quilting using Aurifil thread in a cream color.
  • Cut your binding strips 2 1/2" using the AccuQuilt GO! #55017 2 1/2" Strip Cutter die.
  • Join the strips, press in half and sew to the front of the quilt.
  • Finish your binding by machine or by hand.

Here is a closeup of how I quilted the center of the blocks.
