Stitch Gifts 2012 - Festive Table Runner by Marcia Van Oort (pg. 70)

Dec 19, 2012

For the "Festive Table Runner" by Marcia Van Oort in Stitch Gifts 2012, please note the following corrections to the instructions:

Step 3: The last entry should be: two 30" x 7 1/2" (not 28" x 7 1/2").

Step 5 should read: For the table runner base, mark and cut 45-degree angles on both ends of the 56" x 6 1/2" piece of batting-covered interfacing. Make sure the angles slant the same way.

Step 6, 4th line: The first number should be: 65 (not 64).

Step 7: The first measurement should be 30" (not 28").

Step 8 should read: Lay the 57" x 7 1/2" brocade piece right side up. Then, right side down, lay the 30" x 7 1/2" brocade piece from Step 7 with the pressed end at the center of 57" piece. Lay the other 30" x 7 1/2" piece right side down over rest of 57" piece, raw edges even. Stitch around all sides. This forms the brocade base with a center opening. (The angled ends will be cut and stitched in the next two steps.)

Step 9 should read: Center angled interfacing insert on top of brocade base. Using the angled interfacing insert as a template, mark the 45-degree angle on each end. Set interfacing insert aside for Step 11.

Step 10 should read: Sew the angled seams as follows. Sewing a short way on the long edges, pivot at corners, and sew the angled ends. Trim angled seams. Turn right side out through center opening. Press flat.

Step 12: Delete this step (it's already been done).
