An easy-to-make ta­ble run­ner.

CUT­TING

Pre­pare a tem­plate for the flower us­ing pat­tern given. Cut as per in­struc­tions.

Note: The flow­ers in the sam­ple were cut us­ing a die- cut­ting ma­chine and a flower die.

From each fat quar­ter:

• Cut 4 (2" x 20") A strips (16 to­tal).

From yel­low dot:

• Cut 3 (1" by fab­ric width) strips. Sub­cut strips into 2 each 1" x 361/2" B strips and 1" x 131/2" C strips.

From dark pink tonal:

• Cut 3 (21/2" by fab­ric width) strips. Sub­cut strips into 2 each 21/2" x 371/2" D strips and 21/2" x 171/2" E strips. • Cut 2 (3" by fab­ric width) flower strips. • Cut 4 (21/4" by fab­ric width) bind­ing strips. From fusible web: • Cut 2 (3" x 18") strips.

COM­PLET­ING THE RAIL FENCE BLOCKS

1. Se­lect and join one A strip of each fab­ric along the 20" edges to make an A strip set; press. Re­peat to make a to­tal of four A strip sets. 2. Sub­cut the A strip sets into 12 (61/2" x 61/2") Rail Fence blocks re­fer­ring to Fig­ure 1.

COM­PLET­ING THE RUN­NER

Re­fer to the Assem­bly Di­a­gram for con­struc­tion steps.

1. Ar­range and join six Rail Fence blocks to make a row, al­ter­nat­ing di­rec­tion of the blocks; press. Re­peat to make a sec­ond row.

2. Join the rows to com­plete the run­ner cen­ter; press.

3. Sew B strips to op­po­site long sides and C strips to the short ends of the run­ner cen­ter; press.

4. Sew D strips to op­po­site long sides and E strips to the short ends of the run­ner cen­ter; press.

PRE­PAR­ING THE FLOW­ERS

1. Fuse the two 3" x 18" fusible web strips end to end on the wrong side of one 3" by fab­ric width dark pink tonal flower strip re­fer­ring to man­u­fac­turer’s in­struc­tions.

2. Re­move the pa­per from the fusible web. Fuse the wrong side of the re­main­ing 3" by fab­ric width dark pink flower strip to the fused strip, be­ing care­ful not to touch the fusible web with your iron. Note: This cre­ates a dou­ble­layer fab­ric strip.

3. Lay the pre­pared flower tem­plate on the strip and trace 12 flower shapes. Cut out shapes on traced lines. Note: Or use die-cut­ting ma­chine and flower die to cut 12 flower shapes from dou­ble-layer fab­ric strip.

4. Ar­range and pin two flower shapes on each ver­ti­cally po­si­tioned Rail Fence block re­fer­ring to the Assem­bly Di­a­gram.

5. Ma­chine-stitch a re­peat­ing cir­cle in the cen­ter of each flower as shown in Fig­ure 2 to com­plete the run­ner.

5. Create a quilt sand­wich re­fer­ring to Quilt­ing Ba­sics on page 94. 6. Quilt as de­sired. 7. Bind edges re­fer­ring to Quilt­ing Ba­sics on page 94.
