This month I will give instructions for this pretty runner using Creative Grids Split Seconds Ruler.
You will need 2 pieced blocks and 2 solid blocks.
Start with a 6″ square of fabric then using complimentary fabrics join a strip to one side of the square and then press seam flat. Trim any excess fabric so that you are always working with a straight edge. Then join a second strip of fabric to the next side of the square. The strips do not need to be of a uniform width. In fact it adds more interest to the block if the width of each strip varies.. Keep adding in strips of fabric until you have a pieced block large enough to cut a 16 1/2″ block. You will need 2 blocks.
Then cut 2 blocks in a complimentary colour 16 1/2″ x 16 1/2″
Repeat with the other 2 blocks
Then move 1 of the pieced sections behind the plain piece so that you have a pieced and a plain section and join together along the curved cut.
Repeat with the other sections. You will end up with 4 blocks.(Only need 3 for the table runner)
For the sashings cut a strip 1 1/2″ wide then cross cut into 2 – 1 1/2″ x 16 1/2″ strips.
Join a sashing strip to the right hand side of the first block then join a second block to the other side of the sashing.
Join a second block to the right of the sashing strip followed by another sashing strip then the third block.
For the border cut 3 x 2″ strips. Trim 2 x 50 1/2″ long and add to top and bottom of Table runner
Trim 2 x 19 1/2″ long and add to either end of the runner.
These blocks would also look lovely used in a bed quilt.
I hope you have fun with this project.
