Stepping Stones Christmas table runner



At the Let's Bee Social this week, I shared a mock up of the Stepping Stones block in red and green. And that was it....  I just had to make one!





There is a free tutorial for this Stepping Stones block here.
And the block pattern has been added to my shop here.


The block finishes at 10" square
and the pattern includes instructions for making the block
using a single colour, two colours, or in multicolour.


I was so inspired while playing around on my EQ7, in laying this one out in a Christmas themed colourway.... And just had to get right to work on making my mom a new runner this year!






I don't have very many prints to choose from in my stash, but I managed to find the three reds and three greens needed. Then I found this lovely piece of Toscana from Northcott Fabrics for the backing.




I quilted using plain white thread on top and in the bobbin. And am so pleased with how this runner turned out! It reminds me of peppermint!





Now I think I'd like to make another one for my MIL. This time using solids!




The "Stepping Stones Christmas" table runner finished at 13.5" x 43.5"
and was the 15th use of my 2nd edition of 100 labels
ordered from Ikaprint.

I'm not working on anything Christmas related this year, but for those of you who may be looking for something to quilt along those lines.... Something to make for a gift this year (or next year!).... I thought I'd also share a few past makes with you today.






The pattern includes instructions
for making a festive door banner
and a lap quilt setting.

Each reindeer block finishes at 12" x 12"
and would also make a cute mini quilt!




This is Ugly Christmas Sweaters.
This is a free quilt along (found here) and is also available as a pdf pattern (found here).

Each sweater block finishes at 12" x 12"
These blocks can be used to make:
a table runner
a pillow cover
a cute mini quilt
or a quilt of any size!




These are some of the table runners I made last year.
They are Winter mittens
and the Santa Runner.

All of these runner patterns can be found in my shop here.




Speaking of table runners....
There is a free tutorial for this Stepping Stones block here.
And I have added this block pattern to my shop here.

I got a little carried away in laying this one out in a Christmas themed colourway.
And now I may be planning to make my mom a new runner this year!

Quilt BLOCK Patterns

Happy December 1st!

Now that the craziness of November's Cyber Sales are over.....
That means it is only 25 more days until Christmas.

I have been a busy little elf, loading up my Etsy Pattern Shop with new Quilt BLOCK Patterns.

These quilt BLOCK patterns are each based on a single block that may be featured in one of my full quilt patterns, but only give instructions for making this single block. So although you may not want to purchase an entire quilt pattern, you may be interested in purchasing a BLOCK pattern.

To view the PDF Quilt BLOCK Patterns, click here to go to my Etsy Pattern Shop. Then look on the left sidebar and click on PDF Quilt BLOCK Patterns.













There is a big list of quilt BLOCK patterns that I am still working on.
And adding to the shop as I go.


Meanwhile, I am offering a coupon code that is good for the entire month of December 2016.

Use SALE25 to save 25% off your total purchase of $10 or more.




Merry Christmas and Happy Shopping!
