Simple Circles Table Runner


 Hi again! It's Natalia from Piece N Quilt. I am super excited about this fun table runner. As you know I usually make quilts but I decided to change it up this time and go with a fun, simple table runner that requires no quilting.

Stop by my blog or website to see my other tutorials and purchase your materials.
2 Yards Batting
Take 20 of your layer cake squares and trace three sizes of circles on them.
We used (15) 10" circles, (5) medium circles and (5) small circles.

Cups, plates and bowls are my favorite templates for circles.

After you have traced your circles on the fabric you will layer your materials. First batting, then backing material, right side toward you, then your layer cake square right side away from you.

Stitch 1/4" inside the traced line leaving a 2" opening that will be used to turn the circle right side out.

Trim on the line you originally drew.

Clip little notches every 1/2" around the entire circle.

Turn the circles right side out. Press and top stitch. You don't need to turn the small opening.

Now lay the circles out in a pattern like the one above. Tuck the opening of every circle under another circle. Stitch in place.

I love this idea . . . but the end of the tutorial might need a little more detail.

How are the circles stitched together in the last step? Are we supposed to sew over the circle's original topstitching?

Great! It would be easy to make matching coasters too. Thanks!

Es un camino de mesa muy original y fácil de hacer. Seguro que lo practicaré. Gracias por compartir.

Finally got one of these made for a bridal shower gift. Used black, white, and red material I had on hand. Worried my average height batting would be too much, but it wasn't. Hardest part was arranging the circles. LOL The gift was very well received. Thanks.

So cute .... and modern ! When you stitched it together at end, did you slip stitch it or use sewing machine?

Annie said...

I'm thinking ovals (eggs) in Easter fabrics!

Angie said...

I wonder how it would be if you stitched it so that it wasn't the clean edge and it could fray like a rag quilt? I'm thinking that would be cute too. :)
