Leftover Charm Squares Make a Lovely Runner

Traditional Blocks are a Breeze to Construct by Machine!
Batik charm squares update the look of Cathedral Window blocks in this lovely runner. Select a pretty combination from leftovers or from a favorite product line.
The blocks have also been updated for easy construction. Besides being slightly larger to accommodate 5″ squares, everything is sewn by machine. Traditionally, there would have been a lot of hand stitching involved but these blocks go together much more quickly.
Play with colors to create your own special version. Make all the centers different or arrange them in an organized way like the designer has.
The finished runner, from designer Colleen Tauke, is 15″ x 45″. You can easily adjust the size by altering the number of blocks. For example, a square configuration would make a lovely topper for a square or round table.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
