I might be missing something here - how long are the strips?

I can make this table runner in so many fabrics and colors for any dcor of my home. I also like this pattern for a bed runner, bedskirt, valance, and pillow shams.


I copy and paste the pattern into my word processing program. It takes a few minutes to edit out extraneous stuff, but then I have a nice clean pattern, which I can print!

I don't have a starmaker, what are the dimensions of the triangles?

Just cut a true 45 degree diagonal from the top corner of the strip set, as illustrated. The size will be automatic.

Great easy ida to make diamond pattern, thanks
