I did a post earlier this month on changing the size on some of the runners in my Trendy Table book. It was kind of fun to see how the designs looked on a larger scale, so I decided to do the remaining projects from the book. (If you missed the first post, click here). As I mentioned in that post, I’m not very skilled at making digital quilts, but hopefully it will help you visualize the blocks in a different way. This time, rather than just laying a few runners next to each other, I tried to come up with more unique layouts.
First up, Sorbet. The original runner looks like this –
For my larger layout, I envisioned it as a table-cloth type quilt.
Next up is Fusion. Here is the original:
For this one, I wanted to see a border of the blocks around a plain center. With this layout, I like how graphic the blocks are and I didn’t want to take away from that by laying them next to each other. The plain center preserves the graphic nature of the quilt – and you will have to envision some fancy quilting in that center.
Now Rock Candy –
For my size option, I just make the runner and added two extra blocks to the width.
I also did one with the two outer blocks positioned differently and added a border.
Lastly, I have the Tango Runner.
If you separate the runner in half vertically, and turn the direction of one block (the orange one in the photo below), you get a topper. In fact, if you follow the directions as written, you will get two toppers.
