15 minute Table Runner…. That took me an hour to make.

WIDTH OF FABRIC:
FABRIC –A : FOCAL 9 INCHES ( OR 12 inches for the wider version.)
FABRIC –B: ACCENT AND BACKING —18 INCHES ( or 24 inches for the wider version)
Place both fabrics ( A and B) right side together. Sew up both sides and create a tube. Use a generous quarter inch seam.
Set the side seams before turning the fabic outward. It will lay much nicer for you.
Square up the end of the runner using your favorite method.
I then made sure the sides of the runner was distributed evenly before pressing the runner.
Fold the edges of the runner together. Sew from the edge to the fold. This makes for a nicer finish. There are two options on the way you fold your fabric, it determines how the runner will look.
Option one : The accent fabric is sewn and folded so the point detail is to the front of the runner.
Option Two: The fabric is sewn so the point is flipped toward the bottom. Press well. Finish the runner in a method you like. Sew around the end or the entire table runner, using a straight stitch or a blind hem. You can also consider using decorative stitches; some decorative stitches look just as good on the back as they do on the front. You can also do some free motion OR straight line quilting.
