Runner Assembly

Place cut pieces in the order shown, reference chart for layout. 

Sew pieces together going column by column, using a ¼” seam allowance.

Press seams in one direction, going in opposite directions for each column. 

Sew columns together matching up seams (nesting seams).

Press column seams open to reduce bulk.
