Simple Quick Table Runner Quilt Pattern

Pin It
With the new machine ready to go and the manual at arms length. I pulled out some pre-cut squares from a giveaway I received years ago
I'm going to walk you through the quilt process here a bit. If you are a seasoned quilter,  this is a very straight forward pattern you will need

Cut 24 Assorted Colors - 4 1/2" x 4 1/2"
Cut 2 Border Sides - 4 1/2" x 16 1/2
Cut 2 Border Top and Bottom - 4 1/2" x 32 1/2"
Binding Cut 2 1/2" x 98"

Sew together the 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" squares as shown above, you will have 12 units
I pieced the colors in a general pattern How to Piece Squares

 Press seams to one side

I like to lay my units out, mix and match the color placement.

This is done so that the corner go together perfect and your square is square
Good fabric to good fabric, seam to seam

Fold each seam in the opposite direction

Sew these 12 into 6, 4-patch blocks, match the seam lines as shown.

I still pin my work, always have and probably always will.

After units are sewn together, press the seam allowance

Back of the 4-patch square, you will have 6 of these blocks.

Finished these up and we'll start again in a few days.
