    I guess you can all figure out how this runner was constructed. I pretty much made it up as I went along. Start out by sewing together strips of contrasting fabric to form a nine inch square. The number of fabrics and strip width can be whatever you desire. When finished with the squares make sure they are squared and of equal size. They may all be identical or two identical and one sewn together in a contrasting fashion. Cut each square into four equal quarters. Lay the pieces of each square back together turning some of the quarter to create a pattern. Lay all squares out and rearrange until you have a pattern that you desire. Each square is then sewn back together in quarter inch seams. You can then go ahead and add whatever contrasting material you wish between and bordering the blocks to make your runner. Happy quilting!!

    i really like that you didn't use a lot of different fabrics. It looks like you only used two fabrics but, after examining it carefully, I think you only used one. What a great idea!
