Fussy Cut 4 1/2" squares from the Domestic Diva's fabric showing the Domestic Diva's at work .
I cut 8 Diva's for my Table Runner. Finished Table Runner size is approx. 10 1/2" x 73"
Cut 8 - 2 1/2" Squares from the light fabrics for each Block ( = 64 light squares) Either iron the squares in half on the diagonal or mark with a pencil. (this will be your sewing line)
Cut 4 - 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" rectangles from the medium/dark prints for each block.
Also cut 4 - 2 1/2" squares from the medium/dark prints, for each block.
Sew the light 2 1/2" squares as shown to the med./drk. rectangle's, following the sewing line you either ironed in or marked with a pencil.

It will look like this. (you will make 4 of these).
