It's MaGiC

I made a table runner for a swap last Christmas & a friend asked me how I made it... so it made me think that I would share it here as well. I am NOT the originator of this block, I was introduced to it, but I used it my way... & made the "gift" shown below.
If you make two simple blocks... sew them together... then cut them apart... you can come up with 6 different patterns combinations using only 2 colours. You can also use 3 colours for more combinations & the use of 3 fabrics looks wonderful in Christmas colours.

It's amazing... just look at this...




I used the 6th combination (above left) & made this...





Its very simple to do... so if you want to try it... just go to my web page HERE... the FREE instructions are there for you to use... just look under "quilting".   EnJoY.
