Twinkle Toes Table Runner- HQM Quilt 16

 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!!!  

This Twinkle Toes table runner is actually made using the Sparkle Star Foundation Paper from Fat Quarter Shop.  I had some leftover after making my Twinkle Toes quilt, and thought it was just perfect for a table runner.  This Runner finishes at 18" x 52" and will be such a fun addition to my Dining Room table this Christmas :) 

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!!!  

And now this table runner has joined  my collection of Christmas decor and I can't wait for December!!!   I just love Christmas Quilty Goodness and I love that I get to celebrate it in July as well as December :)  Quilters totally have it right on with Christmas in July ;)  

And that is Quilt #16 - Twinkle Toes Table Runner ;)  16 Down and only 10 more quilts to go in the Happy Quilting Marathon :)   Almost to single didgets left!!!!  

And that is it for today, thanks for popping in to share this finish with me!!! 

I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!
