Instructions Are Included for Baby, Lap and Bed Sized Quilts, Too!

A pretty combination of coordinating fabrics makes a lovely runner to dress up your table. The version shown here, made by Anorina from Samelias Mum, has been altered from the original pattern to create a long, narrow runner. It’s approximately 65″ long by 14″ wide.

However, you can easily make a more standard runner shape by using three blocks constructed as specified in the original pattern from The Fat Quarter Shop. That will produce a runner that’s 19 12″ x 57 1/2″. Four blocks will make a square baby quilt, or keep going and make a lap, queen or king size quilt.

The block pattern is super easy, and is made from 10″ layer cakes squares and 5″ charm squares. The following video will show you how simple the blocks are to make.


The pattern is extremely versatile, too. Depending on the colors you choose and their placement, you can give quilts made from these blocks many different looks.
