I love the step by step directions. Love this sewing project. With some lovely holiday themed cloth you can make this table runner. Finished size of this quilt is 15″ x 36″.

There are so many great Christmas fabric prints every year, but I find it always a shame to cut them into small pieces for quilting! This table runner allows you to choose and feature a large scale print.

The project is a quick sew and suitable for a beginner quilter. The larger center panel is bordered by pieced strips that are sewn from smaller scale prints. The completed size is 15″ x 36″, the perfect size for a coffee table or as part of a dining table center piece for your holiday dinners.

Quilted Christmas Table Runner Tutorial

Step 1 – Cut the Following:

large scale print – 9 1/2″ x 30 1/2″

smaller scale coordinates – 1 1/2″ stripes by width of fabric, 3 of each fabric for 9 total

Step 2 – Make the Outer Boarder

Sew 3 different strips together. Press seams to one side. Repeat with remaining strips.

Cut into lengths of 3 1/2″. You will need 30 blocks in total.

Sew 3 blocks together.

Sew this row to one of the short ends of the panel.

Repeat with the other short end. Sew 12 squares together to form the rows for the sides. Attach them to the sides of the panel. Now your quilt top is complete.

Step 3 – Add the Backing

To finished the quilt top, cut a backing that is 1-2″ larger than the quilt top on all 4 sides. Tape it to a hard surface with right side down. Spray the backing with adhesive.

Place a similar size piece of batting on top of the backing. Spray top of batting with adhesive.

Center your quilt top on the batting, right side up.


Quilt through all layers. You can use straight lines or free motion quilting. I did some free motion loops.

Trim the backing and batting to be even with the quilt top.


Step 4 – Make the Binding

To create the binding, cut 3 strips 2.5″ wide by the width of the fabric. Join them together with a diagonal seam and press.



Press the long strip in half, lengthwise.

Sew binding to the right side of the quilt. Flip folded edge to the wrong side and hand sew it down.
