Christmas in August

How about a fast table runner for Christmas? One long rectangle of your favorite print, with Snow Buddies appliqued on both ends? I quilted organic lines on the applique area and lots of rectangles elsewhere. I used Aurifil 50wt thread for the blanket stitching of the appliqued shapes and for the quilting.

The backing was pieced and it all come together very quickly. The facial features were drawn with fabric marker giving the snowmen a happy, chubby look. I like to hand stitch the binding so that is what I did on this table runner.

The pattern will be coming soon, too (ai, ai, ai, my To Do list keeps growing!). [Post update: the fabrics for this runner are by Moda: basicgrey/jovial is the name of the collection.]

What are you up to today? Have you even started thinking of Christmas? I am linking to A Round Tuit and Keeping it Simple, and Sew Can Do...

I have one more piece of the fabric I used on the back which had salvage on - Yes! It is by Moda: basicgrey/jovial is the fabric collection. I bought it a while ago but I am sure you can still find it. I hope this helps!
