In spite of a power outage, I managed to get these Christmas table runners quilted and bound in two days. The quilting is quite dense and was a little time consuming, but sew worth it! This first runner finished at 14″ x 49″ after quilting.
The second runner finished at 14″ x 70″. Both are now for sale in my Etsy shop.
I am sew impressed with the effect of the organic wavy matchstick quilting. It helps the runners to lay nice and flat and adds a wonderful texture. Looks like wind driven snow!
The backing is Tidings of Great Joy by Janet Wecker Frisch for Quilting Treasures. This large scale script text print tells the history of the Christmas tree. This neutral print goes well with all colour schemes.
Here is a great close up of the quilting – and my new labels from My Own Quilting Labels. I love these cute little labels!

After quilting, I cut the corners on a 45 degree angle to add a little interest and eliminate the boxy look. I quite like those angled ends! Sew happy with each of these runners!
One more pic… Just because!
