It is Week 16 of the Happy Quilting Marathon and we have more Christmas in July!!! And I am super lucky that I had a very small Christmas Project waiting to be done, because I have barely been home this last week, and I just managed to squeak this one in before my weekly deadline ;) I started this Twinkle Toes Table Runner back in Feb of last year, and for something so small, It puts a big smile on my face to have it done!!!
I love Chriastmas, and just like last week . . . I love Sweetwater's Christmas lines!!! This one actually used the scraps from my Red Barn Christmas fabrics that I used to make my Starlite Christmas Sampler quilt. And I just loved the way it turned out. So simple, and so festive at the same time!!!
When it came time to quilt it, I decided to have some fun with some matchstick quilting. I always love a table runner that has been quilted this way, it just gives it so much texture!!! And it was great to change out the colors of threads to match the prints. And I have to say, I loved doing this on the Infinity HQ, because the throat space was wide enough to fit the whole runner without having to roll it forward or back, so I had just quilted away and it was done in no time at all!!!
