Are you looking for free quilting patterns?
You’ve come to the right place. We have several free patterns of all kind on this site.
We’re giving you another one here. It’s a free table runner pattern.
We'll go over what the pattern looks like when finished and how to get the pattern for free!
To start this project you will need the free quilting pattern that you can find here:
To make this table runner add inner borders that are 1 inch wide and outer borders that are 2 1/4 inch wide. The overall dimensions are approximately 18 1/2 by 42 1/2 inches.
12 blocks are what this table runner requires.
Our directions will go over how to make one block.
Just repeat the process 12 times to get the correct number of quilting blocks.
The size of the pattern can be adjusted if needed with your computer’s own editing software.
When the size is to your liking, print the image out with your printer.
Now that the pattern is physically in your hands we have to trace it onto the paper side of your favorite fusible.
Once the design of this peacock feather applique pattern is traced, then cut out the design around the lines. This is to ensure that we will be trimming the fabric on the line AFTER the applique quilting pattern is adhered on.
Be sure not to cut upon the line at this time. That will happen later.
Now that the shape is cut out it’s time to press them onto the back of the appropriate fabric. Do this with a medium hot iron. Press the pieces onto the backs of the desired fabric. Count to 3 as you press down.
When the fusible is glued to the back of the correct fabrics, cut along the lines of the design.
Most of the time you will be cutting only a thin layer of fabric along the edges. This is alright. The trimming will prevent your fabric from fraying and avoiding the whiskered effect that you don’t want.
After doing the last trimming to your design piece we need to find out where on the fabric you want the design to be.
Once you have that established, press the piece into place with the medium hot iron again and count to 5.
Then you may stitch down your applique with a tight zigzag or satin stitch if so desired.
Now you have completed an applique quilting block.
Assemble the rest.
Lay the blocks out in the desired final quilt layout.
Then sew the blocks together to achieve the center of the table runner.
Add the borders and voila! Done with the table runner quilt top.
Quilt and bind it as you see fit!
Free quilting patterns are wonderful and this one is sure to make a quilt that will delight everyone.
Have fun with it and be sure to show us all your works of art by posting in the quilting forum.
Until next time.
