Petits Fours


Petit four (plural: petits fours):  a tiny, bite-sized cake with delicate layers of moist cake filled with smooth butter cream and jam fillings. Each cake measures approximately 1.5 " x 1". The miniature cake is often dipped in fondant and decorated with piped icing flowers. The name is from the French petit four, meaning "small oven".


1 Charm Pack (40 - 5" squares) I used Wildflower Serenade 2 by Kansas Troubles
1/8th yard for inner border
1/8th yard for binding
Backing and batting at least 15" x 47"




All seams are 1/4".

Select 27 (I used the top 27 from Wildflower Serenade) of the 5" squares and cut each into 3-1.5" strips. This will give you 81 strips that are 1.5 x 5". You need 80. Have a nice sharp blade and you can stack and cut several charms at once.
Reserve the remaining 13 charms for the outside border.

Sew into 40 pairs of 2.

Sew 2 pairs together. Repeat until you have 20 sets of 4 strips.

Press all seams one direction.

Trim length to 4.5". I stacked 4 blocks; trimmed 1/4" off one end...

then trimmed the other end to equal 4.5".


Sew two 4-strip units together as shown below. Repeat to make 10 units.

Press as shown below.


Sew these units together...

to make 5 blocks like this.
Cut the inner border fabric into 3-1" strips. Attach the inner border to the long sides of the runner first, then to the short ends.

Take the last 13 charms and cut at 2". You will get 2 pieces that are 2" x 5" per charm.


Sew 2 sets of 3 together and 2 sets of 10 together. .

Attach to long sides of the runner first, matching center seam of runner with center seam of border. Trim off the extra
Put a pin in the center of the 3-charm strips and match to the middle seams on the short ends of the runner. Stitch. Trim off the extra.

Quilt, bind and make another one.

I think it's sew fun getting a tablerunner from 1 charm pack!!

Sharalyn said...

I needed this perfect project at this perfect time on this perfectly beautiful spring day. It's just perfect for a Secret Sister project. THEN I got to the end and saw that it was another All Washed Up design and I said to myself, "Perfect! I know those girls - they're my friends" which makes it even more perfectly perfect!
