Today I am sharing a table runner pattern with you that is quick and easy to sew, and makes a quick gift or perfect decoration for any table.

Here's what you need for the 24.5" x 39.5" table runner

Background Fabric: 3/4 yard (white in sample)
from that, cut:
4 - 7" x 7" squares
8 - 2" x 6.5" rectangles
2 - 2" X 30.5" rectangles
2 - 2" X 18.5" rectangles
2 - 2" X 36.5" rectangles
2 - 2" x 24" rectangles
Red Fabric: 1/4 yard
from that, cut:
2 - 7" x 7" squares

Green Fabric: 1/4 yard
from that, cut 
2 - 7" x 7" squares

Gold Fabric: 1/4 yard
from that, cut 
8 - 2" x 8" rectangles

Print Border: (red print in sample)
from that, cut
2 - 2" x 33.5" rectangles
2 - 2" x 21.5" rectangles

Binding: 1/3 yards
from that, cut
4 - 2.5" x WOF strips

Now the fun begins!

On the wrong side of each 7" background square, draw a diagonal line, corner to corner.

Layer these, right sides together with the 2 - 7" Red and 2 - 7" Green squares.

Sew 1/4" on both sides of the drawn lines.

Cut on the drawn lines.

Press open or to the Red or Green fabrics. Trim to 6.5" x 6.5".

Being careful of the orientation of the angle, sew a 2" x 6.5" background rectangles to the bottom of a Red/Background half square triangle. Press open or to the Background rectangle. 

Sew a Gold 2" x 8" rectangle to the left side of the unit above. Press seam open or to the Gold.

The block should now measure 8" x 8". 

Follow the same procedure for the Green/Background half square triangles; only this time, press open or to the Green/Background half square triangles when adding the Background and Gold rectangles. 

Following the image below, lay out four blocks. Sew the four blocks together and press seams open. Make two of these large blocks.

Sew two of the large blocks together and press the seam open. 

Sew the 2 - 2" x 30.5" Background rectangles to the sides of the quilt. Press open or to the borders.
Sew the 2 - 2" x 18.5" Background rectangles to the top and bottom. Press open or to the borders. 

Sew the 2 - 2" x 33.5" Border rectangles to the sides of the quilt. Press open or to the borders.
Sew the 2 - 2" x 21.5" Border rectangles to the top and bottom. Press open or to the borders. 

Sew the 2 - 2" x 36.5" Background rectangles to the sides of the quilt. Press open or to the borders.
Sew the 2 - 2" x 24.5" Border rectangles to the top and bottom. Press open or to the borders. 

Quilt as desired and bind using 4 - 2.5" x WOF strips.


Wasn't that easy?

I feel so blessed again in my marriage after PRIEST OSAS brought back my husband that separated with me for good 3 months. ANNY ROBERT by name from California. Even though I have mouths all over my body, it won't be enough to thank PRIEST OSAS for his help in my life. My husband separated with me for 3 months and has been in pain and agony without him. So, I searched for help everywhere but nothing worked out not until I meant PRIEST OSAS who I contacted online. I explained my situation to him and he promised that my husband will get back to me within 24 to 48 hours so that my heart still beats for him. I believed in him and he prepared a spell for me and my husband called me exactly when PRIEST OSAS said. He pleaded and said he needs me back and now we are living happily again for the past 9 months. Everyone out there reading my article that needs help should contact him... Email: or WhatsApp him : +1(419)359-4367

I am so grateful to this man Dr. Raypower and I are making this known to everyone out there who have been trying all day to win the lottery, believe me this is the only way to win the lottery, this is the real secret we all have been searching for.

Hi everyone... Am so excited to share my testimony of a real spell caster who brought my husband back to me. My husband and I have been married for about 6 years now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone else. He started coming home late from work, he hardly cared about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the Internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr. Wale can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and told him my problems and he told me what to do and I did it and he did a spell for me. 48 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promised never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. My family is living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr. Wale If you have any problem contact him and I guarantee you that he will help you. He will not disappoint you. you can WhatsApp him +1(978) 406-9575 or Email him at : or view his website for more review

I am Larry Baier. I can never stop thanking Dr Graceondu for transforming my life, i have been playing lottery games for a very long time and i have never one day win any game, i met a friend whom i complained to about my inability to win and he introduced me to Dr Graceondu whom helped his life by giving him a game that he played and he won $150,000
so i contacted him through his email and he assured me that i will wine big once he give me a game to play, he asked me to give him two day so he can make prayers to his gods so that the winning numbers will be revealed to him, so i waited for the two days the second day he sent me the number to play, so i went to play the game i never had it in my mind that i was going to win such amount of money, so on that faithful day i went to check the game on April 16, 2021 and behold i got the biggest shock of my life i won $2,000,000 and from that moment my life changed.
all thanks to Dr Graceondu, i want to also advice everyone out there to also contact him if you have been playing lottery and you have never won.
You can reach him via his email, or WhatsApp him +15204677763, you can also visit his Website.

I never thought that I could be this wealthy after all I've been through trying to meet ends and take care of my family, I used to play lottery but has never be lucky to win until I saw some comments online how he had helped a lot of people win, after first I didn't believe him but still I gave it a try, I wrote him a message on email after few hours he replied back so I told him what I want he assured me success. he also told me what I should do and I did all he requested from me, after some hours he gave me the lucky numbers and showed me where to play so i did as instructed to my biggest surprise I won 27 million pounds (Euromillions). Now I'm rich and happy all thanks to Dr Benjamin for the help, I'm nothing without you. if you need his help to win you can reach him via his email and his whatsapp +13344539570
