Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Good rotary cutting and piecing (sewing) skills

Pattern Description:

I enjoy designing patterns that are fast, fun and easy. This one is no exception! All of the blocks can be cut out simultaneously by stacking the fabrics for the blocks and making all the cuts at the same time. The fabrics are then "shuffled" and reassembled according to the diagrams.

The sashing units and borders are all strip- pieced. Make a coordinated set by making all three sizes in the same fabrics, or give some away as gifts.

This pattern adapts well to making larger size quilts. Just make more blocks and sashing units!

  • Table Runner: 21" x 51", Table Toppers: 20" x 20" and 20" x 30"


  • 100%cotton fabric (pre-washed), rotary cutter, 6" x 24" and 12 1/2" x 12 1/2" acrylic ruler. Complete supply list on page one of pattern

You Will Also Need:

  • Thin cotton batting, backing fabric, thread to coordinate with fabrics used.
