Sprouts of Joy | Table Runner Tutorial
December 12, 2013
Hello! How is everyone's December going so far? We are almost half-way through the month which means that the new colour options for one of my favourite blenders in the fabricsphere, Squared Elements, will be here soon!
Today we created a table runner tutorial focusing on tones of red (taking advantage of the season as well). We wanted to show you one of the new colours in advance, and Pomegranate as the main fabric brought the perfect touch of modernity.
Here is what you will need:
1. Seven (7) 6 7/8” squares of White Linen (Pure Elements)
2. Seven (7) 6 7/8” squares of Pomegranate (Squared Elements)
3. Seven (7) 2 7/8” squares of London Red (Pure Elements)
4. Two (2) 1¼” x WOF strips of Sprouts of Joy Crimson (Reminisce by Bonnie Christine
5. Three (3) 1 1/2” x WOF strips of Dulcette Azalea (Color Me Retro by Jeni Baker)
6. 1/2 yd of Hibiscus (Nature Elements)
Begin by sewing together the HST patches using one triangle of White Linen and one of Pomegranate. Make fourteen of these patches.
In order to create the red corners, grab one square of London Red and align it with the corner of the White Linen part of one of the HST patches. Sew on the diagonal of the London Red triangle. Trim 1/4" away from the sewing line, fold upwards and press. Repeat this step seven times.
Now that you have all of your patches ready, construct two columns, each of seven patches. Pay close attention to the orientation of each patch.
Now you can attach the sashing strip of Sprouts of Joy Crimson.
Now you are ready to quilt it. We decided to do a triangle motif to bring more modernity into the design and used the Tarnish Gold thread from Pat Bravo's Quilting Heart thread collection for Aurifil. For the binding use the strips from Dulcette Azalea. You are done!
