A Fast and Fun Table Topper.
Nine patch blocks have endless possibilities to put bright and pretty prints on display. This easy runner can be made for any season, using scraps that go together well to create the theme, or quick and easy Moda candy squares. A fun no fail quilt project.
These runners make great Christmas gifts. Make something new to put on display for the next season, or just to freshen up your decor.It’s the perfect way to use up left over fabric, and get the most out some of your favorite prints. Easily whip up a new table runner without purchasing any fabric at all.
This simple nine patch runner designed by Sherri of A Quilting Life, can be made in two sizes and can be made to fit your table. Sweet little nine-patch blocks will be 6 1/2″ x 6 1/2″, using Moda’s candies’ 2 1/2″ squares. You can make your runner longer by making more 9-patch blocks and cutting more side-setting triangles. Finished sizes: 12″ x 37″ or 12″ x 45″
The blocks will be framed in side setting triangles. Sherri suggests handling the triangles as little as possible, since they have bias edges and can easily stretch. Once all triangles are sewn your runner will now be rectangular in shape, with pretty little nine patch blocks on point. The borders can be made in seasonal fabric to set a holiday scene, or capture a seasonal feel. Alternatively, use the same fabric for the borders as the background fabric for a soft display.
This versatile and fun table runner pattern is available for purchase for a small fee and will bring you great joy to make.
