This week we are sewing all of our "Hexagon Squares" together to make a table runner. (or table square)
First we need to discuss the layout of your blocks - if you are sewing the:
16" x 36" runner you will arrange your blocks 4 across by 8 down.
27" x 28" square arrange the blocks 6 across by 7 down.
Now you are ready to begin sewing. First sew all of your blocks across in pairs using a 1/4" seam allowance and paying attention to your block order. TIP : I press the seams of rows 1,3,5 and 7 to the LEFT and rows 2,4,6 and 8 to the RIGHT.
Now sew all of your pairs into rows of 4.
(or 6 if making the table square)
Once you've completed all of your rows, sew them together in pairs.
If you are making the Runner you should now have 4 sections.
(table square = 3 sections + 1 row)
Sew all of your sections together to finish your Table Runner (or table square)
Here is my finished Table Runner top on my design wall.
I'll share a picture of it quilted and bound in the near future.
If you are making this table runner please share a picture of your progress and finished top in the link below so that we may stop by and visit you.
