I needed to make a gift, and found a free pattern for a table runner on the net. It is called 'Jingle Jolly Runner', by Happy Zombie.
I used lots of fabric squares from my stash, in addition to whites/neutrals and black fabric for the stars. The finished table runner is 16" x 40", a nice size.
Here is details of the quilting. I quilted it using the walking foot, with slightly meandering lines. That gives a sort of wooden structure. In this picture you can see that the stars are made of two black fabrics, one with polka dots, and the other with tiny white stars.
My porch was wet after the rain, and I was able to stretch the runner out in the garden chair. The lighting was not the best, but the colors show off good, though. This is sort of a Christmas runner, but can be used other times of the year, too.
The back definitely has a Christmas/winter theme, red with white and green (!) snowflakes. The binding is solid green. I am pleased with the result, and I think this table runner will brighten up its new home!
