Fruity Tablerunner

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.
