Hi everyone, this is Connie from Freemotion by the River and I am back with another fast and easy table runner for you using the GO! Qube Mix & Match 12” Block set and the applique Feather die. I am really having a lot of fun using the Qube in its handy self-contained storage system.
I used batiks from the Island Batik Lavish collection.
Finished size 12" x 36"
Red – ¼ yard
Orange – ¼ yard
Light Peach – ¼ yard
Red – ¼ yard – 3 – 2 ½” strips for binding
Backing – 42” x 18”
Batting – 42” x 18”
Small piece of fusible adhesive for applique
I recently moved into a new studio and I am using 2 Ikea Algot storage systems to hold my GO! Big Electric fabric Cutter. It works great!
GO! Fabric Cutter:
GO! Cutting Dies:
Follow the cutting directions below:
Shape 2: GO! 3" Finished Square
Cut 8 - light peach
Shape 4: GO! Quarter Square Triangle-6" Finished Square
Cut 12 - light peach
Shape 5: GO! Half Square Triangle-3" Finished Square
Cut 16 - red
Cut 24 - orange
Cut 4 - light peach
Shape 6: GO! Square on Point-4 3/4" (4 1/4" Finished)
Cut 3 - light peach
Two of the storage systems make a perfect place to do my die cutting.
Apply your fusible to the fabric and cut 10 - red of the shape shown
Use a ¼ inch seam allowance throughout and press to the dark side.
Follow the diagram below and piece your blocks making 12 flying geese sections by adding 2 orange half square triangles (5) to each light peach quarter square triangle (4).
Next add 4 red half square triangles (5) to each of the 3 light peach square on point (6).
Make 4 half square triangle blocks with red and the light peach.
Layout each block as shown and sew together. You will make 2 of the first block and 1 of the second.
Sew the 3 blocks together for your table runner.
Use 2 feather pieces for each heart. Follow the diagram and overlap them to form the heart. Applique the pieces.
Finish by layering your backing, batting and table runner. Quilt as desired and add binding.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and be sure and stop by my blog for other tutorials, quilt projects and to see photos of my new studio.
