Design Wall Monday - April 14, 2014

Everyone has heard the saying measure twice cut once!  I try to double check before cutting but that sure didn't help me this weekend.   I had just 1/2 yard of a pretty floral fabric and was going to make two table runners out of it.  For one I needed to cut a 6 1/2 inch strip and for the other a 7 1/2.  

I cut everything wrong!!!  The 7 1/2 strip I cut 7.  Then I had to figure out measurements to make the block smaller with a 7 inch center instead of 7 1/2.  Not to hard but aggrevating.  

For whatever reason I cut then cut a 4 inch strip.  I think it was what one of the tone on tones were supposed to be cut for the first runner.  Anyway at this point I didn't have enough fabric left to salvage the second runner I wanted to make. I did have enough for one more 4 inch strip so after fuming for awhile I decided that I could make a small runner using 4 inch squares and small 4 patches.  Not what I had set out to make but with fabric so expensive (and this was new fabric not stash) I was glad to salvage a project out of it.  

Here are the first few blocks on my design wall.
