We Especially Love the Runner!
Festive wrapped packages line up in a row in this beautiful Christmas runner. It will be lovely on a table, dresser, or buffet and set the mood for lighthearted holiday cheer.
While we love the bright modern colors and prints, the runner will be beautiful in your favorite Christmas colors, too, whether they be more traditional red and green, blue and silver, or another combination.
Start with 10″ layer cake squares or fabrics from your stash for the bows and wrapping paper. Choose a solid color for the sashing, in this case white, and a fun stripe for the binding.
The completed runner, designed by Allison Jensen of Woodberry Way, is 56″ x 13″. You’ll find the pattern for the “Simple Gifts” runner in .
Several other quilts in this beautiful collection also caught our eye. “Red Rover” is a delightful quilt that features a beautiful solid red. Softer prints are a lovely contrast. The completed quilt is 60 1/2″ x 72 1/2″.
“Holiday Charm” features a similar color theme without the solid red. It’s a simple quilt to make and the straight-line machine quilting is the perfect finish for a classic look. Once completed the quilt is 60 1/2″ x 76 1/2″.
If you want a new quilt for your bed but don’t want to do a lot of piecing, consider the striking “North Star” quilt. It makes a big impact with minimal sewing time and will be beautiful in any color theme. We love the deep blue for winter or enjoy it any time of the year. The finished quilt is 88 1/2″ x 88 1/2″.
There are several other beautiful quilts and an amazing braided rug in the collection. Be sure to check them all out at the following link.
