- Pin and sew around the outside edge, leaving a hole approximately 12" to turn the runner right side out.
- Clip corners on the diagonal. Be careful not to cut the seams.
- Turn the table runner right side out and smooth. Pin baste. Stitch in the ditch on the seam separating the blue to the gold border.
