Antique Table Runner Blog Hop with Fat Quarter Shop & GIVEAWAY!

Hi everyone!


I can't believe it's been like two months since I've blogged. Life has definitely been super ridiculously crazy. I swear I'm working on that Fabric Map Tutorial for you all! I've just been slammed with projects and really no time to blog. It's been one things right after another or sometimes multiple projects stacked on top of each other. 

One small announcement: I will not be taking any wallet orders until after the New Year. I'm limited on my sewing supplies and fabric til the end of the year due to a move.

Well my family has been in the middle of a move. Yep! Another big move! We've moved out of Georgia and headed to the Lonestar State of Texas! I'm so excited to meet some of you in person! I can't even tell you!!! I'm ready for another fun adventure! This time it's more permanent so that'll be nice. We can actually settle down and get into a real routine since we'll be staying put for a while. Before we packed up our home and said goodbye to Georgia, I had the opportunity to work on a fun project for Fat Quarter Shop. I knew the holidays were around the corner and I wanted to work with some fun colors.

It's no secret that I'm a fan of Cotton + Steel. The colors, the prints, the saturation, I love everything they do! So naturally I chose some fabulous Tinsel! I couldn't resist the bright fun festive prints and colors and thought this table runner would make for an out of this world awesome quilty Christmas project! Check out the video below as well as the GIVEAWAY!

The pattern can be found HERE










The Laundry Basket Quilts Color Daze quilt kit (as shown on the video and pattern) can be found HERE

  3. Ex Libris by Alison Glass might be a pretty great fabric for this, with the art print used down the middle...

  4. Wow your runner looks beautiful! I'd want to use that gorgeous cheater cloth that Kimberly used though if I got to make it :0)

  5. I'd totally copy you and use that Cotton + Steel Tinsel! I have a layer cake that I just ordered from FQS, and I love that you used it in this. I didn't even think about a Christmas table runner, but it's such a great idea.

  84. I need a nice runner for the top of my piano. I'm thinking the colors in Kimberly's example would be just about right, and I'd just skinny down the middle section to make it fit.

  86. Oh what fabrics; think I'd make several. Already called FQS to find out how long the roll of piecing paper is -- 50 feet! I love your cotton and steel one for a start. I'd also try a variation with a border Christmas print I have to put the herringbone in the middle and the borders on the edge.

    ReplyDelete
  87. And I've followed FQS's blog forever it seems and added them to Instagram some time back.

    ReplyDelete
  88. I think I would make it scrappy (but controlled scrappy).
