Stashbusting Sunday ~~~

Still nothing to report in the stashbusting arena.  I’m playing in EQ7 and fine tuning a few patterns that I would like to present here at a later date.

The only sewing I’ve done was attaching a piece of velcro to my shoulder brace…and that required several needle changes.

Shades of Summer Table Runner

I’ve been playing around in EQ7 again.   I don’t use many tablerunners as our table is 7′ long and most runners aren’t proportioned to fit.  As shown, this one is 26.5″ x 62.5″ which is a nice size.   By changing the border widths, I could extend the size to fit most any table.

The pieced 9.5″ unfinished blocks are made up of 5″ sections.

The hot pink blocks are 5″ squares paired with a pieced square.  The pieced units consist of  1 – 2.75″  green square, 1 – 2.75″ x 2.75″ orange print rectangle and 1 – 2 .75″ x 5″ orange print rectangle set together as shown. 

Each 9.5″ unfinished block takes 2 hot pink and 2 pieced squares set with the green squares meeting in the center.   You’ll need 6 of the pieced blocks and 6 – 9.5″ orange alternate squares.  

Your borders can be any width you like.  As shown, the green inner border and the orange middle borders are 1.5″ strips.   The print outer border is 2.5″ wide strips.

Here is an alternate colorway for you!  How the look changes with color placement!  

These would make qiuck gifts.
