Sewing Instructions:

Step 1: Using a pencil (or your favorite marking method) and a ruler, draw a diagonal line from corner to corner on the wrong side of all Fabric 4 (Tan) 3-7/8" squares.

Step 2: Place a marked Fabric 4 (Tan) 3-7/8" square on a Fabric 1 (Dark Green) 3-7/8" square, right sides together.  Sew a 1/4" seam on BOTH sides of the marked line.  Cut apart on the marked line and press seam allowance toward the darker fabric.  Trim points.  Repeat five more times for a total of 12, Fabric 1/Fabric 4 half-square triangles.

Step 3: With right sides together, sew a Fabric 3 (Red) triangle to one short side of a Fabric 2 (Light Green) triangle.  Press seam allowance toward the Fabric 2 (Light Green) triangle.  Sew a Fabric 3 (Red) triangle to the remaining short side of the Fabric 2 (Light Green) triangle.  Press seam allowance toward the Fabric 2 (Light Green) triangle.  Repeat 11 more times for a total of 12 flying geese units.

Step 4: With right sides together, sew the Fabric 1 (Dark Green) 3-1/2" squares and the Fabric 4 (Tan) 3-1/2" squares together to make 3 four-patch units.

Step 5:  Arrange the block sections as shown below and sew into rows (Diagram 1).  Sew the rows (Diagram 2) together to finish the block (Diagram 3) .  Repeat 2 more times for a total of 3  Christmas Star blocks.  The blocks should measure 12-1/2" at this point.

Step 6:  Sew Fabric 4 (Tan) 1-1/2" x 12-1/2" sashing strips to the blocks as shown below.  Press seam allowances toward the Fabric 4 (Tan) sashing strips.

Step 7:  Sew Fabric 4 (Tan) 1-1/2" x 12-1/2" sashing strips and Fabric 3 (Red) 1-1/2" squares together as shown below.  Press seam allowances toward the Fabric 4 (Tan) sashing strips.  Make 2.

Step 8:  Sew the strips made in step 7 to the top and bottom of the tablerunner as shown below.  Press seam allowances away from the Christmas Star blocks.

Step 9:  Sew the Fabric 1 (Dark Green) 2-1/2" x 14-1/2" strips to the left and right sides of the tablerunner as shown below.  Press seam allowances toward the darker fabric.

Your Christmas Star Tablerunner is now pieced!

 

Your tablerunner should now measure 14-1/2" x 44-1/2" inches.  After the binding is attached is will measure approximately 15-1/2" x 45-1/2". Use your favorite method to quilt and bind your tablerunner.
