I promised my Mother-in-law a table runner for Christmas this year and I finished it just in time!
On one side it is Christmas fabrics arranged in stars following this tutorial by Jennifer at Ellison Lane Quilts.
I just did loopy quilting. The white fabric has little white stars on.
I only had one charm pack, so had to adapt the way I made the stars a little bit from the tutorial. I did cut them to the same size though so I have lots of little inch wide scraps!
Then on the other side I used a Harvest Moon charm pack and created this pattern, which was inspired by a quilt by Naomi. I chopped the squares in half then one side in half again. Got lots of little bits left over so I can see me putting together some other bits over the coming months.
I have to say these wouldn't be my personal choice of colours (I let me MIL choose her own fabric for the non Christmas side) but I really liked the way it turned out.
I quilted with white thread on the Christmas side and a matching mustard colour on the other side. My quilting needs more practice, in many places I see sharp zig zags instead of nice curved loops and many occasions the stitch length is questionable. But I have resolved to practice every day on scraps!!
I was so happy that I managed to get it lined up and neatly centralised on both sides Binded it with a navy fabric that seemed to co-ordinate with both sides.
Thanks for taking a look.
