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.
