Some pretty hearts sewn from my stash.  I wanted to have a table runner completed in time to celebrate St Valentine’s Day, and after stitching into the early hours, managed to do just that!  No time for fancy quilting, just a simple stitch in the ditch for now.  Maybe I’ll go back later and do some stippling to highlight the hearts a little bit more, but in the meantime, another job done!

Christmas Table Runner

Better late than never!  I had an idea in the midst of the pre Christmas rush, to make a table runner for December.  While I procrastinated, I got a very nice little Secret Santa present …. 6 fat quarters of Christmas fabric.

To this…except I swapped out the plain red fabric.  After all, you can’t have too many stars!

 

It’s actually quite a straight-forward pattern consisting of half square triangles and the good thing is that you could easily swap out the fabrics to suit any time of the year.  Something to keep in mind for a quick handmade gift.

Whatever you are doing on Christmas Day, I hope it’s a happy and safe one for you and your families.  Last year we all made the decision not to worry about presents (except for children and animals!) so we all bring some lovely food to share and enjoy each other’s company instead.  Can’t wait!!!
