This appliquéd and embroidered runner has a pillowcased edge, and doesn't require binding! The center of each block is embroidered with a motif that will fit within a 5" circle.
We've included two different designs, one is done on the Janome Horizon Memory Craft 15000 and features an embroidery motif from The World of Embroidery Designs collection. The other runner was made on the Memory Craft 9900 and uses a butterfly, one of the embroidery motifs that Jane designed exclusively for Janome. These designs come pre-loaded on the machines. It couldn't be handier!

Tips on Pressing
What kind of pressing equipment do I need?
Start with a good dry/steam iron and a sturdy ironing board with a clean, padded surface. The fabric guide on your iron is helpful for choosing the proper temperature setting. There are lots of special pressing aids on the market, but you can create easy substitutes for many of these items. For example, a man's handkerchief or a square of your fashion fabric makes a good press cloth. For pressing seams open on long cylindrical sections (think sleeves, pant legs, tie belts, etc.), make your own seam roll by placing a magazine on top of a piece of muslin, rolling the two up tightly together and securing the ends of the muslin with a few rubber bands.
Is there a correct way to press a seam?
This easy, three-step pressing technique will magically improve your sewing skills:
|1.||Press the seam flat along the stitching line to blend the stitches.|
|2.||Press the seam allowances open or to one side, as indicated in the pattern instructions.|
|3.||Press the seam or detail area from the right side. If necessary, protect the fabric with a press cloth.|
What's the difference between "pressing" and "ironing?"
When you "press," you move the iron across the fabric by lifting it up and putting it back down in an overlapping pattern. When you "iron," you slide the iron across the fabric with a back-and-forth motion. Ironing may stretch or distort the fabric; pressing won't.
