The border pattern for this 20" x 62" table runner can be downloaded from my Craftsy pattern page, here.
Keep in mind that this pattern is for the border only. The four twelve inch blocks can be the clovers I used from Natalia Bonner's Sunday Stitches at Piece and Quilt, or they can be anything you desire! Just be sure they finish at 12 inches.
This pattern is an intermediate skill level, and assumes some paper piecing knowledge. I have pictures of the paper piecing, to help out with the construction. Just so there is no confusion, I used the freezer paper piecing technique, because, frankly, I hate the chore of tearing out paper! For a tutorial on using freezer paper, click here.
Here's the first piece (A1 and B1) ironed on.
In adding A2 and B2, I sped things up by chain piecing on one long strip, then cutting them apart.
Holding it in position, I laid it flat.
Holding it steady again, I flipped it over for sewing along the folded edge of the paper.
Here the B units are sewn, trimmed, and pressed (topside on the left, backside on the right, top to bottom).
The last A piece was sewn in, then B was sewn to A, with careful matching of the seams so that the ribbon matched up.
I used the "take a few stitches" technique I used in Sewing Diamonds to make sure everything was good to go.
Then stitched the whole seam. And voila! Success!
To make your own bit of Irish luck, the pattern may be available again next year.
The pattern consists of instructions, plenty of diagrams, and two pages of templates. If you have any questions, or find any errors, please email me.
