Christmas Table Runner/Wall Hanging

Okay, our company has left, the bread has been started and some of the housework done, so now I can give you the pattern.  My son and his wife dropped in unexpectedly yesterday evening and stayed overnight.  It was great to see them but it put me behind in the things I was hoping to do. 

Materials Needed

1 meter/yard green print*
3/4 meter/yard red christmas print
1/6 meter/yard dark yellow or gold
1/2 meter/yard border fabric.
Foundation paper
20 " X 45" Batting
1 meter/yard backing fabric

*Small prints are best.

Wash and iron all fabrics and remove salvage.
Cut three WOF  X 1/12" (or desired width) strips from red fabric for binding.
Each block/section is 6 inches and four sections make a block.  See photo on right.
Photo copy foundation patterns on your paper and piece acording to the numbers on the pattern. 
Make three blocks.
Sew together as shown in the photo.
Measure your top down the center vertically and cut 2 strips of border fabric 3 1/2" wide and sew.
Measure center horizontally and repeat.

Layer top, batting and backing.  Pin and top stitch as desired.
Add binding.  If using as a wallhanging, add sleeve .

I will send you the foundation pattern by e mail to ensure that you are able to print.  Please send your contact address to:  arkangelcreations@gmail.com
