Christmas Table Runner

Bernina Club had the cutest table runner this month, but they were out of the pattern, so I came home and drafted my own.  Not exact, but I don't like cookie cutter stuff, so this worked for me.

I embroidered the words on my fabric with my 730 and then
appliqued the snowflakes.  The original pattern's snowflakes were all the same.  I had to make mine different sizes because of the size of the blocks,  but I think it adds a little more interest.

The piecing went together very quickly, because few seams had to match. 

As you may be able to see, decorative stitches were sewn on each seam of the top.  I used fusible fleece on this project and then the giant rick rack was added along with the backing.  It was turned inside out and topstitched.



Here is the finished runner!

  1. It turned out lovely and definately not "cookie cutter". From another Gone With the Wind fan.
