A Quilting Journey

Holly’s Tree Farm Tablerunner

Today was another busy day! I did manage to get another gift finished this afternoon.

I really love the simplicity of patchwork table runners. Using charm packs makes the process even quicker.

I used the Holly’s Tree Farm by Sweetwater for Moda charm pack for this table runner.  It is a gift for one of my SIL in Wisconsin. It’s the cutest fabric — with pick up trucks, decorated trees, holly and berries and really cool text designs.  To me it has a rustic retro look! Perfect for northern Wisconsin.

The runner measures 18.5 x 36.5 inches.  This is the first time I did machine binding and was really pleased with the results. I used this tutorial from Rachel at Stitched In Color.
