Strip of Stars

This rich, dark table runner makes a great housewarming gift that comes together quickly. To duplicate it, use the navy and burgundy fabrics from the Briarcliffe collection for Timeless Treasures. Five Evening Star blocks are framed with a neutral print, while a wide outer border utilizes the same bold floral as the setting triangles.

Assemble Quilt Center

1. Referring to Quilt Assembly Diagram, lay out the Evening Star blocks, navy floral setting triangles, and navy floral corner triangles in diagonal rows.

2. Add setting triangles to opposite edges of block in each diagonal row (Quilt Assembly Diagram). Triangle points will extend past adjacent edges of block. Press seams toward setting triangles.

3. Join diagonal rows. To reduce bulk, clip seam intersections as in Assemble Blocks, Step 7, and press seams toward setting triangles. (Setting and corner triangles are cut slightly larger than necessary to allow for trimming.)

4. Add corner triangles, centering blocks on triangles’ long edges, to make quilt center. Press seams toward corner triangles. Trim quilt center to 29x6-1/2" including seam allowances; the Evening Star blocks should "float" slightly within the setting and corner triangles.
