Now that my large quilts are done, I'm working on small old projects to get ready for quilting.
This one is a tablerunner. I've made hotpads from this fruity fabric and decided to make a tablerunner also.
I found this tablerunner on flicker and thought it was a good idea to copy for my fruit squares.
One thing about copying without a pattern, you have to come up with a good assembly plan. This one had some tricks.
I wanted the red sashing to meet as a point between the squares. So I cut the yellow sashings on 2 of the corners 1" short. I also did not sew all the way to the end.
I sewed the small square to the short seam
I sewed the sections together which then left a small opening in the center. That was easy to sew up making sure my seams matched up.
And now I have a tablerunner ready to quilt.
