I have been having fun with the Strip Tube Ruler and this is a little runner I made that measures 9 inches x 24 inches using it.
I cut 4 strips the width of my fabric that were 2.5 inches and 2 strips of creme the width of my fabric that were 1.5 inches and sewed them together as shown above. Now fold so the brown and blue edges are together and sew another seam to make a tube.
I forgot to show a photo of the tube, but you can see it in the photo below.
Place your ruler with the #7 line on your stitching line as shown and then cut.
You will end up with squares like this.
Now we are going to cut the square in half as shown above.
Arrange them like this.
Sew together as shown.
You will have 2 blocks that are approximately 9.5 inches.
I then added a 9.5 inch square of the creme for the center.
I cut some flowers and leaves with my Sizzix Big Shot after I had applied some Heat & Bond Lite to the fabrics.
I just did a little free motion quilting around the petals and leaves in dark brown and also added some stems. I put some scraps of Warm & Natural behind them first and then trimmed away the excess after I was done.
Then I added my backing, batting and did some free motion quilted on all of the creme areas.
Below are some examples of other ways you could arrange the blocks. I ended up getting 7 blocks out of the tube.
