Lucky Charm Table runner is a great project for a beginner who is ready to work with quarter square triangles, don't worry - they aren't really that hard! I used a selection of green for my sample quilt, but wouldn't this be fun in bright colors, too? I think I'll have to try one soon! This pattern requires 29 five inch squares of fabric, 1/4 yard of background fabric, and 1/4 yard for the binding.
Finished table runner measures 13 x 39 - the pattern includes tips for enlarging with an added border, as well as making a square table topper or placemats.
