Today, I've got a Zig Zag Table Runner for you. This was almost the tree skirt, but I felt it would be better suited for a table than under the tree.
Directions below are for 1/4" seam, unless otherwise noted.
List of materials:
-1 charm pack (or forty 5 inch squares)
-1/2 yard of coordinating solid
-1 yard of backing fabric
-FQ of binding fabric
-60 degree triangle template
1)Sew charms into pairs.
2)Next, sew the pairs into four-patches. (if you are using a charm pack, remove two squares). You should have ten four-patches.
3)Cut your solid fabric into 8 1/2" strips along WOF.here!), cut eleven triangles from your solid fabric.
6) Alternating solid and scrappy triangles, sew three rows of triangles.
9) Cut your backing fabric slightly larger than the front.
11) Quilt as desired. I chose to quilt the scrappy triangles in a free motion loop and the solid portions in "organic" zig zags.
Thanks for checking out the Holiday Craft Bash tutorials, and thanks especially to Meredith, for inviting me to contribute! It was a challenge, but very fun!
