More Christmas Presents!

Posted on December 28th, by Amy in finished project, finished quilt. 19 comments

Hi there!  I have a bunch more table runners to share with you!  Up first is one I made for my mom.

I used Dream On and my Go! Cutter to cut all the HST’s.  They sewed up in a hurry, just what I needed!  I quilted with straight lines to compliment the geometrics.

This one I made for my Grandma -

The fabric is Botany, because my grandma loves to garden  And I knew she would love the piecing details with the stars, so I took the extra time to piece all the flying geese.

My Aunt Karen has collected blue/white dishes for as long as I can remember -

Fabric is A Breath of Avignon, and the traditional stars suit the fabric perfectly, so I made two!  They were both quilted on the diagonals.

These two were made for my cousin and sister in law.  Fabric is Origins, and  I quilted them in random diagonals.

A second AB Love runner was made for another cousin -

And I crocheted a set of fingerless mits, for my sister!

I got some nice and chunky wool from knitpicks for these.  They were quick and really soft!

I have a couple more to share tomorrow!  Can’t wait to see what you guys have been up to when I get back to my computer!

  1. I totally love this…. is there a pattern for the one that you made for your Grandma?? And for your Sister in Law and Cousin….
    I love checking your blog.
    I hope that you and your family had a great Christmas.

  2. Wonderful presents to give! I adore all these table runners. My favorite is the first one you made for your mom. I am definitely going to remember this in 2011 as I need gifts to give. It must have felt so great to give these beauties.

  3. Hi Amy!

    All of the table runners are simply gorgeous! I must get one of those cutters; it would definitely help cut enough triangles to make 600 half square triangle blocks for a quilt. I don’t even want to continue making this quilt. Heavy sigh!
    Anyhoo, your work is gorgeous and I wish I was on Christmas list for sure!

    Happy New Year

  4. Wow – that is a beautiful lot of tablerunners – what a wonderful gift-giver you are to be so thoughtful about each one. I especially love the layout of the Botany runner. It is new to me. Very nice work – thank you for sharing!

  5. Wow, have you been busy or what?! Love the runners. I also love how now we can all show photos of the gifts we’ve been working on….that should be an annual blog hop after Christmas….gift that the recipients have seen them. :)
