Hi Ladies, I can shed some light on this table runner, basically it's tube quilting meets dresden plate, that's right, for all you ladies doing the dresden blocks this will be easy. The stitching would be 10 mins but there is a little more to it than that...like cutting, pressing, adding trim etc.
Here is one I did Friday morning:
Mine is not quite finished, I want to do something pretty maybe on those end triangles and put a bit of quilting in, although this is not essential. I did put some batting in mine, just in the centre piece not the parts that get folded and I used an iron on pellon which is why I would not need to quilt it.
You simply create a tube using a 10" piece x WOF and an 18" piece x WOF, turn it to the right side flatten it out and press, centreing the feature 10" piece. Fold lengthways in half, back of runner together and stitch across the end, turn this to the front to create the point and stitch the edge down. This is in fact the opposite to the dresden where you put right sides together, stitch and flip over to the back and you can do it this way if you prefer more of your feature fabric to show the entire length with just an edging of the back fabric, it's up to you.
They look really lovely in Christmas fabrics or any themed fabric.
