    I recently run across these instructions for making a table runner or a center piece i want to make as a Christmas gift. however I can't get the full instructions no matter what or where I try. does anyone know what the full instructions are or can tell me how to do this? I have an idea how but can't quite figure it out. Help please! Supplies:
    Star Table Runner pattern by Farmyard Creations
    Available from your favorite quilt shop or www.farmyard-creations.com
    One 8-1/2Ó x 11Ó piece of card stock or one manila folder
    Glue stick
    One and one-third yards each of two different fabrics for the runner or
    One-third of a yard each of two different fabrics for the centerpiece
    Ordinary sewing thread to match your fabric
    One yard of thin batting such as Warm & NaturalŰ
    One-half yard fusible web
    One spool metallic thread
    Smoke monofilament thread by YLIŰ
    TailorŪs Chalk Pencil, Chalk wheel marker or fabric marking pen
    Point Turner

    Machine(s) and Accessories:
    6005 Heirloom Edition
    or Any Elna Sewing Machine with a zigzag stitch
    Instructions:
    1. Trace both star designs onto paper, then glue the paper to a piece of card stock
    or a manila file folder. Cut out the stars and they are ready to use as templates.
    By doing this, your original pattern stays intact.
    2. Use your template and your chalk marker to trace around the large star design
    on the wrong side of the fabric you want to be the top of your table runner. Cut
    the žturning slitÓ on the top fabric.
    3. Follow the pattern instructions to finish the eight stars.
    4. Once you have the star appliqu»s fused in place, select the feather stitch #50.
    Set the width at 3.5 and the length at 2.0. Lower your tension to 3. Thread the
    needle with the metallic thread and have the monofilament thread in the bobbin.
    Stitch around the star appliqu»s. Use your žneedle downÓ feature to help you
    navigate around the star points.
    5. Rethread your needle with the monofilament thread and put your ordinary
    sewing thread in the bobbin. Reset the machine tension to žautoÓ.
    6. Lay out your stars according the diagram on the pattern and bar tack the points
    together. A žbar tackÓ stitch is simply the zigzag stitch set at 4.0 width and 0.2
    length. Use your žlock stitchÓ feature to secure the threads.
    7. The table centerpiece is three of the finished stars bar tacked according to the
    illustration.

    I made something that soulnds sililar a few years ago and think the instructions came from either the Brother or janome website. Perhaps they are still there. Good luck.

    I would think you're not finding the WHOLE thing (templates) because it was a for sale pattern(NOT free). looking at the kit that was for sale on EBAY (earlier post). I would guess the stars to be 8.5 accross, an uneven primitive star. the bottom point being longer. cut them out twice, sew them, leavingspace to turn them-turn, press,add applique (sm star)finish themm off, bar tack(zigzag), where pts would touch. make 2 rows of 4. flip tops to outside, offset the 2 rows, tack the bottom pts where they touch. looking at the EBAY one, , pretty simple!
