In addition to the runner background there are a few more pieces:

Cut ONE 12 1/2″ x 10 1/2″ piece
Cut TWO 14 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ pieces
Cut ONE 6″ x 8″ piece and subcut into FOUR – 1 1/2″ x 8″ strips

Backing fabric

Cut into ONE 14″ x 34″ piece

Binding fabric

Since you’re in cutting mode, why not cut your binding strips now too!

Cut 2 1/2″ strips the width of the fabric.

{If you know you like your binding thinner on runners, cut strips your desired width. For me, cutting the binding this size works}

That’s it for today! All the cutting is done for the Curling Rocks Quilted Runner. Next post we’ll be making the curling rocks – or stones. What do you call them? Until then, keep your pieces together!

 

 

I love to play with color and *quilts* are my playground! A self-taught quilter, I've been designing quilts for almost 20 years. I'm inspired by happy fabrics, selvages, traditional blocks and nature. I'm also a wife, mother, and elementary school teacher, and enjoy drinking coffee on my front porch in northern Ontario.
