COM­PLET­ING THE RUN­NER

Re­fer to the Place­ment Di­a­gram as needed. 1. Se­lect one each A and B piece. Re­fer­ring to Fig­ure 1, align the tip of the A piece with the tips of the B piece, right sides to­gether with A on top and match­ing the cen­ter notches. Keep­ing the raw edges to­gether just in front of the nee­dle, ease A around the curve of B while stitch­ing to cre­ate an A-B unit. Note: If the ends don't meet per­fectly, don't worry. This area is cov­ered with the cir­cle appliqué and will not be seen.

2. Re­peat step 1 on the op­po­site side of A to make a B-A-B unit as shown in Fig­ure 2; fin­ger-press seams to­ward B.

3. Re­peat steps 1 and 2 to make a to­tal of 12 B-A-B units.

4. Join three B-A-B units with three A pieces to make a flower unit as shown in Fig­ure 3; fin­ger-press seams to­ward B. Re­peat to make a to­tal of four flower units.

5. Join two flower units with B to make a two-flower unit as shown in Fig­ure 4; fin­ger-press seams to­ward B.

6. Sew B pieces to each A edge of the two-flower unit as in step 1 to com­plete the cen­ter sec­tion as shown in Fig­ure 5; fin­ger-press with seams to­ward B, and then flat­ten with an iron, us­ing no steam and with­out mov­ing the iron to avoid stretch­ing.

7. Sew a B piece to five outer A edges of each re­main­ing flower unit to com­plete two end units re­fer­ring to Fig­ure 6; press as in step 6.

8. Hand-appliqué a cir­cle to the cen­ter of each of the end units and the cen­ter sec­tion units re­fer­ring to Fig­ure 7 and to Nee­dle-Turn Appliqué on page 10.

9. Sew an end unit to each end of the cen­ter sec­tion as shown in Fig­ure 8; press as in step 6.

10. Hand-appliqué cir­cles to outer A/B in­ter­sec­tions as shown in Fig­ure 9.

Note: Cir­cles will ex­tend beyond the outer edges of the run­ner top. They will be trimmed later.

11. Cre­ate a quilt sand­wich re­fer­ring to Quilt­ing Ba­sics on page 110. 12. Quilt as de­sired. 13. Af­ter quilt­ing, hand- or ma­chinebaste a scant 1/4" around the edge of the run­ner to hold the lay­ers to­gether and pre­vent shift­ing. 14. Press one long edge of the pre­pared bias bind­ing 1/4" to the wrong side.
