Free Patchwork Pattern - Colours of Australia Table Runner

An easy yet effective table runner

Inspired by Emma Jean Jansen's Range Terra Australis

Size: 14” x 44”



  • Minimum cuts of the 8 fabrics - fat quarters, 25cm or fat eighths.
  • 25cm fabric for binding
  • Backing & Wadding : enough to cover the table runner
Kits Available - Colour-way Rosella or Colour-way Sunburnt

Other tools you will need

Cutting mat. Rotary cutter. Long ruler for use with a rotary cutter. A smaller ruler - easier to manoeuvre for the small cuts. Neutral coloured thread for sewing with - I like the Aurifil ne50 (this is a lovely fine 100% cotton thread, and I usually use a grey). General sewing supplies (thread snips, unpicker, pins, iron).


Before starting please note  all seams are joined with a  ¼” seam (unless otherwise indicated)
Also it is a good idea to read through all the instructions before starting.
