Short Table Runner with Flourish

A few weeks ago, I showed you how to make a long table runner with flourish using motifs from the award-winning quilt Flourish on the Vine. The long table runner measures 12″ x 56″ and is made using Sections 1 and 3 from the Flourish on the Vine Pattern Pack. I also showed you how to make the 9″ center into a separate mini-quilt to use as a centerpiece or trivet.

To make a short table runner with flourish that measures 12″ x 40″, use Sections 1 and 2 from the Flourish on the Vine Pattern Pack. Cut a piece of background fabric 16″-wide by the width of fabric. The background is over-sized and will be trimmed after the appliqué is complete. Fold and press the background fabric in half vertically and horizontally to mark the centers. Using the Section 1 template patterns on pattern pullout page P1 of the Flourish on the Vine Pattern Pack, trace just the circle portion of patch 1.12, matching the centers. The remainder of Section 1 inside the circle may be marked for appliqué or quilting or left blank. In the sample, I machine quilted a series of concentric circles.

Using the Section 2 template patterns on pattern pullout page P2 of the Flourish on the Vine Pattern Pack, trace and appliqué patches 2.1 to 2.12, 2.17 to 2.19, 2.21 to 2.23, 2.33 and patches 7.27 to 7.29 on either side of the circle, matching the vertical center. (Note: Patches 2.13 through 2.16, 2.20, and 2.24 through 2.32 are skipped in Section 2.) For more information about marking and needle-turn appliqué, see pages 3 – 6 in the pattern pack instruction booklet.

Layer the quilt top with batting and backing fabric and baste. Quilt in the ditch around the appliqué and add 1-inch cross-hatching in the background areas as desired. Wash the completed quilt to remove any markings and lay flat to dry. Trim table runner to 12″ x 40″, measuring 6″ and 20″ from the centers and angling the corners. To add a decorative edge finish to the table runner, insert black piping between the edge of the quilt and the binding.
