Dig out your Christmas in July stuff, as it is only five months until the old guy comes down the chimneys! We can get started on gifts and decorations, and maybe have something new for the season. Today is my day on Sarah’s Christmas in July blog hop at Confessions of a Fabric Addict. I got a bit backed up on time, so I am going to show you this runner I did in a quilt along when my blog was fairly new. For this event, I gathered all the instructions into a free downloadable pattern pdf so you don’t have to work your way through all the QAL posts to get it.
Here are the fabrics I used in my runner. The drama of the black background fabric really adds depth to the design.
Start by making a bunch of HSTs, using three different combinations of squares.
You’ll use those to combine with small red squares to make these two units.
Then those units assemble into these blocks.
You can make four or nine blocks for table toppers, or put several in a row for a runner. The block finishes at 12-inches square, so your final size will depend on how many you use and how you arrange them. All the info you need is in the download, and will show you how I do my patterns.
