An Into the Woods Runner

No—NOT a jogger! It is a collection of Wooly Block Adventure blocks by our group of Woolen Oak Designers assembled to create a charming winter woods runner: perfect for a table top, or the back of a sofa, or even the bottom of a bed!

The Wooly Block Adventure (WBA) is officially underway! A few weeks ago, we shared our block for the program, Going to Grandma's, in our post Going on a Wooly Block Adventure. Please take a look back if you need a reminder of the charming little details in this sweet homage to grandmas everywhere.

We all had so much fun this past summer with our Woolen Oak Mystery Stitch-A-Long that we twelve Woolen Oak Designers thought it might be fun to continue to combine our talents. So we each designed a Wooly Block Adventure block, created a unifying element within the Into the Woods theme of the WBA, and assembled them to create this runner. Many thanks to Vicki McCarty of Calico Patch Designs for doing the actual assembly and writing up the finishing instructions!

To learn more about how the Wooly Block Adventure works, go to their website by clicking here, where you can also find a list of all participating shops and the blocks they have designed. During Spotlight Shop days, you will be able to download digital patterns for free; each shop is featured for a two-day period between October 1 and November 30. Links to those Spotlight Shops can be found on the WBA site.

Are you ready to start collecting? We do hope you will consider following our snowflake path to collect each of our twelve patterns and perhaps make your own Into the Woods Runner. Each of our patterns include the finishing instructions for making the runner. And, of course, we all have kits available, which include all the wool you need for the blocks, as well as a printed pattern. The kits even include extra wool for the trees, tabs, and pennies, should you choose to collect and create the runner. Here are each of our blocks, with links to the designers' websites.

Time to prepare for some winter wooly stitching!!

Missie Carpenter, of Traditional Primitives, decided to join her blocks horizontally
 for a mantel runner, with the snowflake traveling along the top of the piece.
Another great idea!

What will you do with your blocks?
