As noted in my last blog post, my table runner is featured in the October/November 2014 issue of McCall’s Quick Quilts. Click here to view all the designs offered in this fabulous issue. Did you notice the four “web bonuses” listed on the web site?
Are you intrigued with the woven appearance of the Black, Gray, and White runner? The placement of the “Roman Stripe” blocks definitely has an over-under effect. To our eyes, the strong black color advances or stands out, while the gray recedes. The juxtaposition of dark, medium, and light results in the dramatic woven effect.
Would you like to make a lap quilt of this design? If so, download the instructions here. The McCall’s editors have adapted the table runner design for a larger quilt and offer it to you as a web bonus.
If you made the lap quilt, would you increase the size of the blocks from 3″ to, say, 6?”
