Lucky Table Runner

It’s almost St. Patrick’s Day. If you’re having some friends or family over, you can decorate your table with the most adorably festive table runner.


It’s called “Luck O’ The Irish” and it’s just as cute as it sounds. The quilters at Fons & Porter created this stunning little number and gave an accompanying video tutorial to make it even easier.

To get started, you’ll need a background fabric and a couple of colors for the Shamrocks. You can go with any color you’d like for this, but for a true St. Paddy’s Day look, use green.

The lady who sews this up also uses a border made of multiple green fabrics. Once you gather your supplies, you can get to sewing this up.

Sewing The Shamrocks

Start by sewing up the little shamrock blocks. Each block is simply a green square with each corner and side of the square snipped for a background triangle. 

From here, you can add the borders around the blocks. Sew multiple shamrocks together in a strip, then add more background fabric around it like a border.

For the additional border, Fons & Porter uses tiny squares, but you can switch it up in all sorts of ways: add a solid border, or triangles, or whatever else you see fit. Have fun with it!

Watch the video down below to get a better idea of how this is done, then you can start it yourself. Happy sewing!
