This beautiful sawtooth 16-patch block can be used to make a pretty table runner that is sure to impress your guests! The pattern of this block looks lovely and with the right contrasting colors, it surely would pop out even more. You can make one for your table, too, simply watch this video tutorial by Shabby Fabrics on YouTube, and follow the instructions.
Sew together 2 strips of fabric, then start cutting them into 2-inch strips, and sew them together with the rest of the small strips alternating their color until you finish a whole block as shown in the video. Draw a diagonal line on the back of all small fabric squares, then place 2 of them on opposite corners of your large fabric square with right sides facing, and sew along each side of the marked line with a ¼” seam allowance. Cut along those lines in the middle and press the fabric open.
Take another small square, then position it on the lower corner of the patchwork, sew along each side with a ¼” seam allowance, cut in the middle, and press open. Trim off each piece that you’ve made, then lay them out, and assemble them together. Sew the pieces together to complete your block and make sure to press in between sewing. Now that you have your blocks ready, finish your quilt by adding the batting and backing, and quilt as desired.
