Simple Scrappy Dresden Table Runner

This is a fast table runner and getting to machine quilting it this weekend.

Prepare 38 hexies in 2 in. EPP using a variety of scraps. Arrange and hand piece these scrappy little hexies onto the two solid colored 12 .5 in. blocks like this in the photo below. Using a pleasing stitch on your sewing machine, sew around the outside edge to secure the hexie block to the background. I used black thread machine blanket stitch.

Turn your 12.5 in. square red color for my version. Tie off stitches on the backside.

With small but sharp scissors, cut away the red fabric from the shape of your Hexie Block.

This is one for my table!

Playing with fabric postcards for friends, maybe sell some at Sooke Craft Sale.

Playing is the name of the game.

That's all for now, work of writing and editing is still going on.

Happy Quilting!


  1. What a fun table runner Caroline! Looking forward to seeing how you quilt it! Christine x

  2. The black thread on the hexie block is a very nice finish. What a clever idea!
