grannying up the table

for a while i've been wanting to make a new table runner to mix things up a bit. i thought i might quilt one using this tutorial. i think i still might, but i decided to make on that matched my new granny square coasters. i love the color this piece adds to my house.

if you would like to try your hand at making one like it, just follow these instructions.

1. make 18 granny squares. there is a simple tutorial here, but you will need to add one more round in white by putting a dc in each dc around the square and in the 2ch space put (2dc, ch2, 2 dc.)
2. sew them together with a tapestry needle-3 across and 6 down.
3. make a border around the whole runner by putting a hdc in each dc and in each of the 4 corners put (2hdc, ch 2, 2 hdc)
