Virtual Quilt Show
This is a table runner that I made for my sister about a year and a half ago. It is approximately 17 inches by 36 inches. I fused the border and the poinsettias to the background and then surrounded everything with gold lame' bias. It gave me a chance to use the beautiful, formal, Christmas fabrics by Hoffman that I have always loved. I especially love the metallic accents in the fabric. I have also made myself one. It is my original design and is made to coordinate with a tree skirt (pictured below) which is also my design. I have published the pattern for the tree skirt and hope to publish a pattern for the table runner as well.
Here is a picture of my runner and tree skirt in use. I use it in a small somewhat Victorian parlor in my home. The room is a quiet peaceful place to unwind with a good book and a cup of hot chocolate. I hope you enjoy it and all the Christmas quilts in SewCalGal's Virtual Quilt Show.
