I got the inspiration for this table runner from a Thimbleberries quilt book that I got from the library. The quilt is called Midnight Sky and the instructions in the book are for a bed size quilt. For this runner I only used three of the blocks, arranged in a rectangle.
Its a very easy block to make. All you do is make a small Friendship Star block like the one in THIS TUTORIAL. Then you add 2 inch wide strips as in a log cabin block.
Easy as can be, as you can see from this close up of the blocks. After making the three blocks, just add borders, quilt and bind. The runner could be made longer, shorter, and/or wider according to the size table it will be used on.
I made a couple of new napkins in matching colors. I'll make some more this week.
