I decided on a pineapple block because she loves Rita from Red Pepper Quilts. And her fav fabric combos are b&w and rainbow.
I had no idea how long this little paper pieced block would actually take me! With my limited sewing time, her birthday quickly came and went without a finished table runner.
Then I had these four cool pineapple blocks and realized that would not be enough.
So I made some others. Its pretty cool how by changing the order of the fabric colors the block looks entirely different.
I do love the way it turned out, but I would like to make a pineapple something - not a big something - someday that really has that pineapple block look.
The table runner is 14x28. That is fairly small. But I told myself that she might have a small table AND you don't want food to actually go on it, right? :)

These kids thought it should become a toy - lol.
So have you made a table runner before? What is your go to measurement? How how to you decide how long to make it?
