A Pair of Table Runners

Before Christmas, I was involved in a couple of swaps within my stitching groups. I spent weeks trying to decide what to make until one day a new Little Charmers pattern by Heather Mulder Peterson arrived in the mail and suddenly I knew exactly what to make.

The pattern includes 3 different table runners ... I chose to make the one called Loops.


I cut 5 inch charm squares from my Kate Spain Flurry and 12 Days of Christmas fabrics and combined them with a red on white spot which was in my stash. (I think it came from Spotlight during one of their sales.)


I did some simple straight line quilting which I hoped would emphasize the 'loopiness' of the design ...


and finished with a red binding.


These runners were lots of fun to make and I'll definitely use the pattern again.
