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.
