Project #1- The Zig-Zag Runner

So I thought I would up load some instructions on how to make this quick and easy table runner, with its distinctive zig-zag or lighting bolt shape it is sure to catch your eye.

  •  Four or six fat quarters
  • 505 basting spray
  • cotton/bamboo blend batting
  • 100% cotton thread
  • tumbler template and accuquilt go
  • rotary cutter, rulers, and cutting mat 
This table runner is six blocks long and it is a variation of the standard four patch.

Basic Directions:

If you have the AccuQuilt go  and the large tumbler dye this quit whips up in a snap, fold your fat quarter in to a six layer rectangle if you are using  four fat quarter, or fold in to a four layer rectangle if you are using six fat quarters.

1/4" seams for all piecing

Once the top is completed to how you like it, use your 505 spray and attach it to you batting. Trim the excess batting off, then place right the sides of your quilt top and the right side of your backing fabric together. Stitch the two long sides and one end of the runner closed leaving a opening on one end of the table runner . Trim off all excess backing fabric, turn the table runner right side out, press it flat andthen  hand stitch the opening closed. Quilt as desired.
