Chevron Table Set

Heidi Staples Stash Books ePub

Chevron
Table Set

TABLE RUNNER SIZE: 9˝ × 37˝

PLACE MAT SIZE: 12˝ × 17˝

Chevrons are not only a great modern accent on these table items, but they also give you the chance to showcase some of your favorite prints. I chose to use a brown sketch print that has the appearance of linen without the stretchy texture that could make these Flying Geese a little more challenging to sew. One of the place mats is intended for a child, while the other three use the same prints found in the runner.

TABLE RUNNER FABRIC REQUIREMENTS AND CUTTING INSTRUCTIONS

Though the materials list gives you a little leeway for cutting mistakes, you can actually make these chevrons using only a stack of charm squares if you make each cut perfectly!

Chevron Table Runner

9˝ × 37˝, featuring Sketch by Timeless Treasures Fabrics

Making the Table Runner

Seam allowances are ¼˝ unless otherwise noted.

FLYING GEESE BLOCKS

1Arrange the chevron prints (2 squares and 1 rectangle each) in order.
