My problem is in Missouri Star Quilt's video, their runner ends with two rows of two on the ends, so you have a straight line of 10" to pull your project through when you pull it right side out. I liked the straight three diamond ends, like are shown here in this runner. in order to have enough room to pull through I had to leave 4 adjacent sides in the middle of one end open. So I've got a whole point and two sides of the adjoining points. I'm finding it tricky to try to sew it up and getting the pivot points to fit together correctly. Would have been nice to see a video of how you prepared to topstitch yours closed. Any advice?

No, I'm sorry I don't even recall how I did it. I followed the video but the way mine turned out with the extra rows was actually a mistake! I think I probably used a bone folder or something like a letter opener to pop all the points out firmly (but not too hard). I do know they are tricky to get the corners so they don't bunch up. When I got to where the corners were when first stitching them together, I would stop with my needle down and pivot the fabric to make the turn before I started sewing again. I hope that makes sense and helps!

Where do I get the pattern for the stitch in the ditch table runner

05/26/2016 Flag

y on YouTube and search for the video. If you search for Charm Pack Table Runner by Missouri Star Quilt Co, it should come up! Good luck and let me know if you can't find it. I will try to find it and copy the link.
