Nothing like trying to figure out what to make for people than to do it with a deadline! I tried this quilt block awhile ago, I was not jazzed about the effect with Mary Englebreit prints that I had.
I was in Baker City, OR for Thanksgiving with a specific fabric in mind, snowflakes. These snowflakes were the ANSWER! Actually, this table runner is for a friend who has a birthday on January 3, and she's not a girly girl. Using Ryan Walsh's tutorial, I made this lovely holiday inspired table runner for Sarah.
Here is a close up of the quilting and binding on the finished project:
This was soooooo easy, a 1 hour project from start to finish, that I had to make another one!
This is currently not finished. I am experimenting with free-motion quilting . . . and its not for anyone in particular at the moment.
Then I had a great idea to make one for my Grandma. She loves chickens. I found some fat quarters at Craft Warehouse and made this table runner in one weekend so I can give her something for Christmas, which she celebrates but I don't.
