Free Fall Table Runner Pattern!

I was clicking through Pinterest the other day and ran across a most  delicious block posted by Quilt Twin.  I knew I wanted to sew a couple up! I also knew I wanted to make a couple new Autumn feeling little quilts.

I played around with my orange and black fabrics and came up with this setting which I thought I would share with you.

Fall Table Runner

You’ll have  enough left over from the strip sets to make a couple extra blocks into little quilts too!

Happy, Happy Autumn Decorating!

A little charm square table runner tutorial.

Wow I haven’t been web logging my days very frequently lately!

Between school being very busy for us this year (homework is crazy for 1st and 3rd grades!! I hate to see middle school and high school!!) and trying to keep up with housework and meals, I just haven’t taken the time to update.

I made up a little table runner using a Glace by Three Sisters charm pack.

I couldn’t find a table runner pattern that used only ONE charm pack !! Have you noticed this about charm square patterns??  But I only had ONE pack, so I had to make one up.

I used an idea by Kim from Kim’s Big Quilting Adventure.  She shared a pinwheel block she made and I hope she doesn’t mind me using it too!

I did it pretty quick…less than an hour! So don’t look at my corners or pinwheel points LOL!!

If you want to make one too, here’s how:


1 charm pack

1/2 yard for backing and binding.


Step 1  (Figure 1)

Take 1 red and 1 white charm square and place them right sides together.

Draw a diagonal line from corner to corner on the light square, then using a 1/4 inch seam, sew on both sides of the line.

Using your rotary cutter and ruler cut on the line then press towards the darker fabric.

Repeat 2 times to make 12 red/white  Half Square Triangles.

Step 2 (Figure 2)

Assemble Half Square Triangles into 3 pinwheel blocks and sew together.

Using 2 of the blue charm squares and 1 green charm square=  cut each charm into 4- 2 1/2 squares.

Draw a diagonal line from corner to corner on each 2 1/2 inch square, place and sew on the line  on the 4 corners of the pinwheel blocks.  Trim off corners to 1/4 inch and press toward the blue/green fabric.

Step 3 (Figure 3)

Using 9 coordinating charms= cut each into 4- 2 1/2″   squares.

Lay them out in 6 rows of  6 and sew together to make one patchwork square.

Cut the patchwork square twice on the diagonal from corner to corner.

These 4 triangles are your setting triangles.

Lay out table runner according to the diagram and sew together!

Layer with batting/backing then quilt.  Then bind. Then enjoy!

Later Gators! Melissa
