Quick and easy to sew
Table Runner & Placemats Set
You’ll love how quickly you can make these modern placemats and table runner. Even beginners should find this an easy project. Make a set for yourself or give them as a gift.
Easy as 1-2-3
Here’s how easy it is to make the Boardwalk table runner and placemat set:
1. Choose your fabric
Don’t have appropriate fabric? Our online store has what you need. Here’s all the fabric we sell.
If you like the blue version here are some fabrics I would recommend:
If you like the earth color look, here’s the fabric I used in my sample:
2. Follow the pattern to make the strip sets
Purchase your pattern here. A downloadable pdf version is available.
You’ll need to cut some width of fabric strips and sew them together three different ways. Once they are sewn together, cut them cross-wise into strips (those lines you’ll see on the diagrams are the cutting lines). I call these the three strip sets.
Then you alternate them as shown in the pattern and sew them together. Notice how there are no seams that touch – meaning there are no seams to match up. Easy peasy!
3. Quilt them together and bind the edges
Sew the three layers together using the easy method in the pattern. It’s all straight line stitching. First, you mark the lines and then, using your walking foot, stitch along the lines. Then bind the edges using your favourite method. You’ll be surprised at how fast and easy your set goes together.
