A post on a Saturday?! Yes indeed! Christmas is coming! In 9 months anyway.
A few months ago while cleaning and reorganizing my fabrics and scraps I went through all of my Christmas fabric scraps and cut out some circles for decorating mason jars.
I had quite a few larger scraps that all seemed to go together that I thought would be good for a small quilting project. I decided to make a table runner.
I cut my strips 3 1/2 inches wide and then 10 1/2 inches in length. After laying them out in alternating rows I stitched them together using a 1/4 inch seam allowance.
I used another piece of fabric and cut it for the backing. Leftover quilt batting was cut to size and then I sandwiched it between the top and back pinning it all together.
I cut 1 1/2 inch strips to bind it with.
I decided to hand quilt this piece and that part is still a work in progress. I used a piece of scrap copy paper to cut out a tree shape and I'm using that as my template to hand stitch around.
If it looks a little small for a table runner it is a bit on the short side. The reason is that I am making my table runner to use in Laverne. 😆
