Hi everyone, it is Connie from Freemotion by the River and today I have a fast and easy table runner using AccuQuilt GO! Qube Serendipity Set by Edyta Sitar. You’ll also find all kinds of quilting tutorials, quilt patterns, and other things on my blog.
If you don't decorate with red and green or blues and whites for the holidays, you will enjoy this tutorial. Add the right accent and you can have a table runner that fits perfectly with any holiday.
Table Runner using AccuQuilt GO! Qube Serendipity Set by Edyta Sitar
Finished size: 13″ x 26″
GO! Fabric Cutter:
GO! Baby Fabric Cutter (55600) GO! Fabric Cutter (55100S) or GO! Big Electric Fabric Cutter (55500)
GO! Cutting Dies:
GO! Qube Specialty Set – Serendipity by Edyta Sitar Dies used: 55750 Quarter Square Triangle - 1 11/16" finished square and 55749 Square - 1 11/16" finished square
GO! Strip Cutter-1", 1 1/2", 2" with Angled Guidelines #55164
Materials Needed: I used batiks from Island Batik
- Cream print – 1 fat quarter for the squares
- Cream - scraps of assorted neutrals for quarter square triangles
- Brown - 1 fat quarter for the quarter square triangles
- Tan – 1/3 yard (includes binding)
- Backing 18" x 30"
- Batting 18" x 30"
- Cut 62 assorted cream quarter square triangles
- Cut 62 brown quarter square triangles
- Cut 36 cream print squares
When you use the AccuQuilt dies, it is so easy to match up your pieces. Using a 1/4" seam allowance, complete 36 quarter square triangle sections.
You will combine these with the squares to create 9 patch blocks.
Make 4 blocks that use 5 quarter square triangles and 4 blocks that use 4 quarter square triangles.
Sew 4 set of 2 blocks together - one block has 5 QSTs and one block has 4 QSTs.
Cut three - 1 1/2" x 10 1/2" sashing strips to separate your blocks. I auditioned a cream and a tan and liked the tan the best. Sew them to the blocks.
Cut two 2" x 23 1/2" strips and two 2" x 13" for the borders. Sew the long strips on first and then the short ones. Always measure your piece before cutting your borders in case you have to adjust a little.
Add your backing and batting and quilt and then bind.
I hope you have enjoyed the fast and easy mini table runner. I also made a wall hanging using the GO! Qube Specialty Set – Serendipity by Edyta Sitar and if you can see the tutorial for that here.
