Happy Monday, quilty friends!
I hope that you are having a great week and enjoyed the holidays however you celebrate.
I finished up a Christmas themed table runner in time for the festivities last week by using some 2-1/2 inch precuts and a free pattern by Bonnie Olaveson of Bonnie and Camille. The pattern is called “Strippy and Bright” and you could really use any color combination to make a quick and easy table runner for any time of the year. You can find the pattern free at All People Quilt.
I used Aurifil 50 wt in white and free-motion quilted some swirls on the main blocks. For the white border, I free-motion quilted loopy lazy 8 shapes. The binding is completely scrappy from leftover pieces of my 2-1/2 inch strips.
Here’s a look at the finished table runner:
I found this fun ceramic red cardinal to place on the table runner. I just love him! We don’t have red cardinals here in Oregon so it is fun to bring in a decorative one this time of year.
Since the new year is almost here, it is time to pack away the holiday decorations. I plan to make 2015 the year of finishing up some UFOs!! How about you?
