Hi everyone, it is Connie from Freemotion by the River with another fast and easy tutorial for the Christmas Pinwheels table runner featuring the 12 inch GO! Qube and also the new 12 inch Companion Set. You’ll also find all kinds of quilting tutorials, quilt patterns, and other things on my blog.
Are you thinking about decorating for Christmas? Today's table runner would be perfect for the holidays. I pulled out a few decorations to get you in the mood! Let's get started!
Christmas Pinwheels Table Runner
16 inch x 42 inch
GO! Cutting Dies:
GO! Qube Mix & Match 12 Inch Block (55778) Dies used: #2 - 3 ½" Square, #5 – 3" Half Square Triangle, #8 – 3 ½” x 6 ½” Rectangle
GO! 12 Inch Companion Set Die used: #9 - 3" x 6" Chisel
Materials Needed: I used batiks
- Cream – fat quarter
- Red - 1/3 yard (includes binding)
- 4 Assorted Red - fat quarters
- Cut 12 - Cream #5 Half Square Triangles (HST)
- Cut 12 - Assorted Red #9 Chisel
- Cut 24 - Assorted Red ##8 Rectangles
- Cut 6 - 4 - Assorted Red #2 Squares
Assembly: Sew with a 1/4 inch seam allowance.Sew the cream half square triangles to the assorted red chisel rectangles following the diagram below. Make 12 of these. In my Winter Blues table runner tutorial I showed how to easily match up the pieces. Add a red assorted print rectangle to the right side of each of the rectangle/chisel pieces. Make 12. Your sections will measure 6 1/2 inches x 6 1/2 inches.
Layout the sections as shown below to make your Christmas pinwheel blocks and sew them together.
You will have three 12 1/2 inch x 12 1/2 inch blocks.
The border uses 4 - 3 1/2 inch squares and 16 - 3 1/2 inch x 6 1/2 inch rectangles.
I forgot to take a photo of adding the border so I have included this graphic.
Sew 2 - 3 1/2 inch x 6 1/2 inch rectangles together. Make 8 of these. Follow the diagram below to add them to your blocks.
I did not add borders to the length of the table runner as it would have made it too large for my table. If you would like your table runner to be 48 inches long then add the borders. You will have enough fabric for an additional 4 - 3 1/2 inch x 6 1/2 inch rectangles and 4 - 3 1/2 inch squares.
Add your batting and backing and quilt as desired.
Cut three - 2 1/2 inch strips by the width of fabric for your binding. Bind your table runner.
I hope you have enjoyed the Christmas Pinwheels table runner tutorial made with the AccuQuilt GO! Fabric Cutter and GO! dies. If you are looking for more ideas for using the GO! Qube Mix & Match 12 inch Block (55778) and the GO! 12 Inch Companion Set you might enjoy some of my previous quilt tutorials.
