“All In One Stop”

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!

Free Quilting Pattern

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.

Easy Applique

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.

We prefer Heat n Bond brand because it is cheap, easy, and less messy. 

Lite hold is used for projects that will be washable and stitched down.  Ultra hold for wall hangs and framed quilts.


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.

Make sure the pieces are paper side up sticky side down when ironing.

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.  

Be sure to peel off the paper. ;)

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.  

It’s ok if you are leaving the design as a raw edge, not stitching it down, if it is just going to be framed or a wall hang quilt.

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!
