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!

    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.

    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

    Way to go on the table runners, they’re really cute. Knit picks is a great place for yarn, I love the selection and the prices are really reasonable.
