I tried designing a tablerunner in EQ, but I couldn't figure out how to get the points on the end. I finally just created another block on each end as a work-around. What should I have done?
Here's my work-around:

There's a Help topic in EQ6 called Adjusting the Clipping Edge of the Quilt that might be helpful in this situation. It talks about working in the Graph Pad on Layers 2 or 3 and using the clipping tool on the right side of the gray bar with the block's size and other characteristics. Not sure if that would work, but might be worth a try.
There's also a "Virtual Border" topic that gives a little more detail about the layer 2 and 3 usage.
I'll be curious to see other responses to this question. I've avoided getting "fancy" with borders because I didn't know how to do it.
I did search for "table runner" in EQ help. I got an article titled "How do I make an on-point table runner with pointed ends?" Those directions didn't work for me -- since my blocks are not on point, I suppose.
I never thought about considering the two end triangles as a border.
I have no idea what a clipping edge is, but I'll sure be looking that one up!
Thanks for the leads. I'll report back on what they lead me to.
Directions are almost done. I realized that I need two sets of directions -- one for me because now I have blocks in My Library that i can just reuse. Then a set of directions for somebody starting from scratch like I did. Apparently EQ had some directions on this back during the EQ5 days. Donna, would you be my "second eye" when I do get the directions done? Thanks in advance.
Hummmm, where will I put these directions......
Sent you a friend request. You can then send the directions to me for review before you post.
Great looking runner Kay.
Looking forward to your "point" directions.
