Here is a tutorial for a beautiful table runner that is pretty easy to make. I really like the blue snowflake version, but this could be made for other seasons and events with other fabrics “fussy cut” for the feature squares.
One thought that occurred to me is that this pattern could be used to showcase some vintage embroidery. You could fussy cut embroidery pieces, fabrics or handkerchiefs for the 6 1/2” feature squares and then use complementing fabrics to set them off. This would be a neat way to repurpose some vintage items and get some enjoyment out of them.
