Table Runner Using the Chisel Die

Linda in Arizona sent me this photo of a beautiful table runner she made using the chisel die. I think I love everything about this table runner. The design is beautiful and especially the way she used the beautiful print fabric for the border and picked up all those colors in the chisels. This is a great project and I think we all need one of these for every season. I love the applique flower in the center too.  After I got her photo, I tried one in Christmas red and green and you can see my piecing steps below.

Here are the steps I used in making the green and red table runner. The first step is to stitch all the chisels for one side together with the middle square. For me that works best by chain piecing so that it is easy to see that all the chisel points are going in one direction.

The next step is to cut the center square which is a 6 1/2 inch square (finished size 6 inches). Then stitch a single chisel onto the square first and then stitch the pieced chisel and square next.

Stitch right side first, then left side

Continue adding chisels until you reach the desired length.
