I’m Smitten with Erin’s Mittens

I’m using The Caroler by Mary Engelbreit to make a cute Christmas-themed table runner from Erin Russek’s Mittens applique pattern.

I’m using fusible web applique for my mittens.

The blocks are ready for machine blanket stitching. I love, love the fabulous colours in this fabric line. Now to decide what colour of thread to use for the blanket stitch .. red, black, white, gold. Thoughts?

Download the mittens pattern from Erin’s site. She’s included instructions for making a quilt of mittens and an on-point table runner too.

Be sure to check out Erin’s idea for squaring up the mittens block … it’s brilliant.

Updated Jan. 4, 2012 – My Smitten with Mittens Table Runners have been completed.
