Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Sew 1/4" seam allowance
  • Sewing Machine
  • My patterns include lots of pictures and diagrams, therefore, they are a lot longer.

Pattern Description:

Do not be intimidated by how these look finished-it's like "a slight of hands"! No seams to match, no curves to cut; just AMAZING results. This is a forgiving technique. Make simple strip stratas and cut them with a 9 degree ruler. Use prints with prints or solids or combinations - anything goes here. It's magically fun!

Make a small or large runner

Make placemats to go with your runner.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 29" x 12 1/2" (14" 9 degree ruler)
  • 36" x 18" (18" 9 degree ruler)

Materials:

  • solids or prints or combinations
  • 14" 9 wedge ruler: 8-10 fabrics- fat 1/4's or 1/4 yard cuts
  • 18" 9 wedge ruler (runner): 9-14 fabrics- fat 1/4's or 1/4 yard cuts
  • Backing & batting: 2/3 yard
  • Binding: 1/2 yard cut on the bias
  • Idea: select a "theme" fabric, then add coordinating fabrics
  • It's amazing how you can add lots of prints next to each other!

You Will Also Need:

  • 14" &/or 18" 9 degree ruler (by Marilyn Doheny) dohenybooks.com
  • 6" x 12" ruler and 6" x 24" ruler
  • Invisigrip for back of rulers or double sided tape or sandpaper dots to avoid slipping during cutting
  • Rotary cutter with new blade (I find 28mm or 45mm are easier)
  • Glue stick or tape, seam ripper (sorry, it keeps us humble!)
  • Small circle stickers (Avery#5472) or any others will do fine
  • Spray sizing or starch to prepare fabric
  • Walking foot, invisible thread
