With summer right around the corner, that means a couple of patriotic holidays. We also have the summer olympics this year.
Follow our instructions below and make your own Wavy Stars Table Runner
Finished Size: 18” x 48”
Fabric Cutting Requirements:
Blue with White Stars – 9-1/2” x 9-1/2” – 2 EA
White with Red and Blue Stars – 9-1/2” x WOF – 2 EA
Red with White Stars – 3” x WOF – 4 EA; 3” x 48-1/2” – 1 EA
Lite Steam A Seam II – 3” x 40” – 5 EA
All seams are 1/4″
See template below for the wave. Trace this template onto the Lite Steam A Seam II, with enough repeats to measure the full width of fabric. Repeat this for a total of 4 waves. Then make one wave that measures 48-1/2”. Trim the Lite Steam A Seam II and fuse to the WRONG side of the Red with White Stars, following the product directions for fusing.
We made our waves slightly longer than necessary so we could place the waves to be parallel and trim as needed.
Work with the White with Red and Blue Stars strip, make a mark 1-3/4” from the top, then a second mark 4-3/4” from the top. These marks represent the center line for your wave.
Place the center of one wave at the first line. When satisfied with placement, fuse into place, following fusing instructions. Repeat this for the second wave on this strip and repeat with the 2 waves on the other White with Red and Blue stars strip.
If desired, stitch around the edge of the waves using your favorite stitch. This can be straight stitch, zig zag stitch (this is what we used), blanket stitch or any other decorative stitch your prefer.
Sew one Blue with White Stars square to one White with Red and Blue Stars rectangle. Press towards the darker square. Repeat for the other Blue with White Stars square and White with Red and Blue Stars rectangle. Trim these pieces to 48-1/2”.
Position the 2 strips so the blue square is at opposite sides and stitch these pieces together.
Using the seam line as your center guide, place the final wave across the entire length of the table runner. Fuse into place and stitch around the edges.
Quilt, bind and enjoy!
