Free Braided Quilted Table Runner Pattern from Craft Gossip

There is something intriguing about scrap fabric projects.  Maybe it is the way a maker takes various fabrics that may not be designed to go together, and turns them into something magical.  This is what I think of with this quilted table runner pattern from Samelia’s Mum.

Along with some other fabric pieces, Anorina used 2.5″ strips for her runner, making it ideal for a jelly roll.  Other than that, she used standard quilting supplies and finished it off with some hand quilting.  One of the nice things about this project is that it is easy to make ...

Free Geometric Quilted Batik Table Runner Pattern from Craft Gossip


Like the name of this pattern from Freemotion by the River implies, this batik table runner practically glows because of the fabrics used.  I don’t know about you, but I always enjoy making table runners.  They are usually fast projects and can often be made with fabric that is already on hand.  That is definitely the case with this design.

While this version was made with a charm pack, it’s an ideal pattern for using up all of those scrap fabrics you have.  And speaking for myself, I am always looking for projects to use up my scraps ...

Candy Corn Table Topper Tutorial from Craft Gossip

This unique and festive candy corn table topper from Sisters of the Divide would make a lovely gift for someone.  I love that the designer has used fussy cutting and Halloween themed fabrics to really show off the pattern.  Those cats hopping around some of the rows would put a smile on anyone’s face. The design also reminds me a bit of a spider web.

Each of the six triangular sections look like a piece a candy corn.  I especially love the way the candy corn fabric comes together in the center.

Fun fact for anyone who is curious ...

Stitching, Knitting and Cutting from The Cozy Quilter

I think I spent some time every day this week working on this table runner--the quilting took a long time and two bobbins of thread to finish. I made the string pieced triangles in an online workshop with Sarah Bond, hosted by the Modern Quilt Guild, 3 weeks ago.


The backing is a fun fabric purchased in the last year.  I like the orange accents in it and the random "Hello".  The binding is an orange solid I had in my stash. The bobbin had 50 wt thread in it but the top thread was 30 wt.  Those quilting lines ...

Cross Stitch, a Knitting Lesson and Some Binding from The Cozy Quilter

First things first...I found the hoop for my embroidery project!  I had put it somewhere for "safe-keeping" and then had forgotten where that was...until this week, when I was doing some fabric cutting and I looked up...My hoop was on the shelf at eye level.


Now, I can get my embroidery framed and hanging on the wall.  I wondered if anyone has any ideas for finishing the back of the embroidery...do you cut off all the excess fabric and leave it that way or do you cover up the back?  I put a piece of white ...
