I really like the summery feel of this pretty fabric, so I decided to split the charm pack into darks and lights, and use the peach, gold, and blue tones for my table runner.
One thing I love about Vicki's table runner is that it's made out of one simple block, a square with stitch and flip corners. I am using the light fabrics from the charm pack for the corners of my blocks and the darker ones for the centers. I made 18 of these blocks.
It has been a lot of fun to play with these blocks and decide what kind of layout I wanted. I used the table that the table runner would be displayed on to decide what would work the best.
Just a single row of X's and O's, using 16 blocks?
A square shape?
Or a bigger rectangle that uses all 18 squares?
It's so fun to play with color and shape! Today I'm hoping to finish this little piece up, so I'll show you how it turned later this week. Have a great week everyone!
