Recently, while working on several new table runner patterns, I had tossed a few small blocks on top of a pile of larger blocks, when I noticed that one of the small blocks looked like it was sort of floating above a larger block. Immediately an idea was hatched, and the “Floating Diamonds” table runner was born.
I tried a few different ways to make the small block look like it wasn’t attached to the larger block below it, before finding a method I liked. It needed to look unattached, but still be very easy to make. Once I got it figured out, I had a lot of fun playing around with all different color combinations – one of my favorite parts of designing patterns.
I had one of the runners that I had made on my kitchen table and I got so many nice compliments on it. I ended up giving it to my sister who insisted the colors matched her kitchen better than mine.
