Bargello Table Runner III

I’ve just finished piecing the bargello table runner top. The second pair of blocks went quite a bit faster than the original two because I was careful about pressing seams in the right directions so I would have no nesting problems as I assembled the blocks.

Bargello Table Runner Top – Finished

The unanticipated thing was pressing seams as I constructed the blocks – I discovered I had to press the seams in the opposite direction from the original two blocks so seams would nest when I went to attach the new ones.

Next I have to find a backing fabric. I’m going to do a pillow case finish without bindings to preserve the clean edge I have here.

    • Not difficult, but it does require technical skill with cutting and accurate seam allowances because you’re cutting, sewing, cutting again, and sewing again – lots of room for slight deviation that makes joining up the blocks and squaring up the finished piece a bit finicky.
