    Christmas Table Runner

    Thank you for all of the suggestions for quilting on this. I finished it today. Now I want one for me but I will have to wait until all my other Christmas gifts are done.

    This runner is beautiful. I love the unique star in the middle. Beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    This is just beautiful, both color and design. Is it your own design? Would you mind sharing the pattern?

    I am inspired by many different things. When I see a pattern I try to find a way to make it my own. For the table runner the center block is a desert corsage found at quilter's cache http://www.quilterscache.com/D/DesertCorsageBlock.html. I was inspired by this pattern from quilting bug http://quiltbug.com/free/table-topper.htm, however the 9 1/2" strip was too short after adding the first 9 1/2" strip. With trial and error, I increased the strip size to 11 1/2" because I did not want to cut off the points of the center block. If you replace the 9 1/2" increments for strips in the pattern with 11 1/2" strips you will be good to go. Other than that one change I followed the pattern exactly. There is some waste at the end but I rather waste a little fabric than cut off the tips of my center block that I paper pieced.

    If you have any questions feel free to private message me.
