Assembling the Project:

  1. Sew a pair of the solid pink and solid gray Half-Square Triangles right sides together along the diagonal seam to form a square block.
  2. Repeat with the remaining sets of assorted solid color and solid gray Half-Square Triangles. Press.
  3. Using the photo as a guide, lay out the table runner on a design wall or the floor. This will make it easier to keep track of piecing.
  4. Sew the blocks together into rows. Press the seams in alternate directions to reduce the bulk at the points.
  5. Sew the rows together until you have completed the runner top. Again, press the seams in alternate directions.

 

Finishing:

  1. Layer the backing, batting and runner top. Quilt by hand or machine as desired.
  2. Sew binding Strips together to form one long Strip. Fold wrong sides together lengthwise, and press.
  3. With a 1/4" seam, sew the raw edges of the binding to the edges of the right side of the runner. Turn the folded edge of the binding to the back side of the runner, and stitch in place by hand, mitering the corners.
