A few weeks ago, I posted a tutorial for the Table Grace Table Runner. Here is the follow-up that I promised.
- (6) small remaining squares leftover from the Table Grace panel
- Fusible Fleece
- Backing fabric
- Sewing Machine
- Rotary cutter
- Rotary ruler
- Rotary mat
I used the 6 small remaining squares from the Table Grace “Say it With Words” panel. Each square measures approximately 3.5″. You will just cut (2) pieces from your jelly roll (or scraps) 3.5″ long. Sew the strips to the top and bottom of the square. Press seams. Measure overall height of block. Mine measured approximately 5.75″. Cut (2) 5.75″ strips from your jelly roll (or scraps) 5.75″ long. Sew the strips to the sides of the block. Press seams. I then took the finished block and trim it to 5.5″ square.
Now, cut (6) square of fusible fleece and (6) squares of backing fabric to match the size of your complete blocks. Iron the fusible fleece to the completed block. Then take the front and back of the blocks and put them together, right sides facing each other. Stitch all the way around, except for about 1.5″ section. Trim your corners for easier turning. Now, turn the entire piece right side out through the small section you left open. I like to us my Pointer Turner by Lee for precise corners. Press smooth. Top stitch all the way around, making sure that the stitch closes the space you left open. And, you are done! Just repeat for the remaining squares.
Hope you enjoy!!!
