Guess it depends on your table – mine is round so I want a table mat. I want it square and not too big so 4 x 4 seems about right to me. If it seems a bit small I’m going to add a border rather than make it 5 x 5.
Here’s a sample runner, 3 x 5 and of course you can make it longer depending on your table. If you have a harvest table, you will probably want it longer. If it’s a standard rectangle, this might be fine. It’s all trial and error. Make it 12 and try it on your table. If it’s not big enough, make 3 more blocks and try it.
Your assignment today is decide what size you want to make, count up the number of blue squares you need to cut and multiply the number of red and white squares you will need, 4 of each per square, red or white. I will give you 2 days to complete this assignment. Please have your blocks completed by Thursday. If you’re an overachiever, go ahead and start sewing them together.
Get ready, set, SEW!
