Quilted Winter Mittens Table Runners
Happy Holidays are on the way! There’s a nip in the air. Time to get your mittens out!
This Winter Mittens runner was a really quick make. Perfect way to cheer me up and get me in a Christmas mood. While I worked like a little elf in my quilting studio.
This fun little runner was made using a few selections from the new Sea Salt Sandy collection from Island Batik for the mittens. And an anonymous white tone on tone for the background.
For the backing, I found this fabulous print from the Doodles collection by Northcott Fabrics at Needles & Pins in downtown Listowel. I don’t drop in there very often because her prices are quite steep. But I am so glad I did because this turned out to be The.Perfect.Print to compliment those beautiful batiks!
The same fabric was used for the binding along with a hint of purple for the flange. Although I used to make it quite often, it’s been a while since I made this type of binding so I found it helpful to refer to my Flanged Binding Tutorial to refresh my memory.
I quilted this runner with my walking foot in organic wavy lines across the width, this time using plain white Guetermann polyester thread. And, for the first time ever, I used fusible fleece for the batting.

This project came together quickly and is a great pattern for using up some of your small scraps! Runner not long enough? Just add on another 13″ for each set of additional mittens to the original 40″ long. This includes the sashing strip between the blocks. So a runner with four sets of mittens would be 53″ long.
And the pairs of mittens block would be a great addition to other cute projects. Great for gifts! Like mug rugs, placemats, or even cute little cushions for brightening up your sofa. A one pair block of mittens finishes at 12″ wide by 10″ tall.

This little runner was so much fun to make….. That I quickly made up another!
This time I used some Daysail by Bonnie & Camille for Moda There’s something to be said for that Aqua and Red! These little runners easily say “Winter” without screaming “Christmas!” and can be used for the entire season.
That backing…. Mmmmm….
So pretty, I’d be tempted to have it facing up!
