My Little Village Tablerunner was a belated Birthday present for my great sister-in-law. It’s made from three houses and a tree that were all pieced. The three stars were then appliqued on top. The whole runner is free motion quilted in a loopy fashion.

Looking at what my blogging friends were doing in preparation for the holidays, I felt the time had come to get in the mood myself.
This simple runner is made from scraps saved over many years. Even the batting was pieced from leftovers. The biggest challenge was quilting with sparkly thread.

I loved the happy winter trees fabric! I did the ‘flapping in the wind’ flat fold trim between the center and border fabrics. Pointy ends take a runner from country to elegant. Happy Holidays, everyone!

I designed this as a paper pieced project that I taught at our local quilt shop. I have a niece that fell in love with it so I gifted it to her a few years ago. The final quilt had tiny yellow buttons sewn on for the center of the poinsettias, of which I didn’t get a photo of.

I wanted to make a quilted snowman tablerunner for our dining room table this year. I used some applique from Bunny Hill Designs “Snowbound.” I mixed up some elements from the blocks and I added an appliqued snowflake to the center. I have a snowflake candle holder that will sit in that spot.

Appliqued crooked trees. I used the trees from the pattern Pieces From My Heart Trees Up and simply used the trees of that pattern, appliqued to backing. I then pieced together with sashing and quilted on my long arm machine using loops stitching.

This was sewn as “all in one” technique meaning sewn and quilted binding sewn on all at once on a mid arm machine. This is the first table runner I completed using this technique, so it was a test run sample ;-) Can’t wait to try some more hopefully as gifts for Christmas.

If you need web sites to be larger so you can read them more easily, then use the browser’s Zoom function, not the text resize. This is a known bug and hopefully I’ll have it fixed for the new year.

Next week is our last contest of the year. The theme is Christmas (not tablerunners). Submit a photo of your Christmas Quilt here.
