There were lots of projects for each season, and I still found some that once made my bucket list, however here is the one I chose:
I'm trying to make something for each season. This looked like something I would like for Fall. So decided to make a table runner of three blocks. One of the drawbacks to this book is that there are few instructions for each of them. I think that's how they got so many into the book. This quilt had three pages - the one above and these two:
So first block: the setting triangles I came up with were too small - back to the drawing board. Got it right on the second try and then finished my first block. All the fabrics were from my scrap pile except the large print that came from my stash - and dated from the 90s! To make sure I could true it up to 13 1/2" square I oversized the setting and corner triangles to make sure I had the correct seam allowance. So I made the first block and trued it up. Wrong - once I had the others made I realized I should have waited til I'd made all the blocks and trued them to the smallest one. So the first block became a place mat or a table mat. I'm still to decide.
The other two blocks became a table runner, and it's a good thing my error happened. Three blocks would have made a table runner too large for our coffee table.
