Sew a Modern Table Runner with Half Square Triangles

It’s not too late to have a gorgeous handmade table runner for the holidays!

You will need:

– 1/8 yard yellow print fabric – 1/8 yard yellow solid fabric – 1/8 yard cream colored print fabric – 1/8 yard cream colored solid fabric – 1/8 yard pink print fabric – 1/8 yard pink solid fabric – 1/8 yard navy print fabric – 1/8 yard navy solid fabric – 1 yard background fabric (I used Kona Coal)


– a piece of quilt batting 22’’ x 58’’ (I used Hobbs Fusible Batting)* – a piece of muslin or unwanted fabric that won’t show 22’’ x 58’’* – a rectangle of backing fabric at least 19’’ x 55’’ – quilt basting pins or basting spray, unless you are using fusible batting

This easy quilted table runner is made with my favorite little quilt block – the half square triangle. If you happen to have a bunch of extra HST’s in your stash, here’s a great way to use them!

You will need 80 Half Square Triangles

Pair each of the 4’’ print fabric and coordinating solid fabric squares with a 4’’ background fabric square. You should have 40 pairs.

Now make 20 Chevron Blocks.

Arange 2 print HSTs and 2 solid HST's . Then sew the HSTs together in pairs to make 2 rows. Sew the two rows together to make a chevron block.

To finish it off sew the rest of the HST's together. 

Make this beautiful Modern Table Runner for your upcoming Holiday Dinners.
