Snowball Tablerunner

Not much going on except for this little table runner I'm working on for a store sample at Quilted Bear. It's one charm pack with a little extra fabric for the applique shapes at each end. I'm using hand dyed wool for the applique, it's quicker and gives it a more interesting look....and I love the look of the wool AND I don't have to turn under the edges...that's a good enough reason for me. Today I'll stitch down the wool and get it ready for quilting.

I'm using the Little Charmers pattern by Anka's Treasures and the fabric is Moda Charisma charm pack. The binding is going to be a multi-coloured strip from the Charisma line.

Not too much excitement from me. I did one test heart block in pinks but I haven't decided if I'm doing more or not...we'll see if I get in the mood for making more hearts.

Thanks for stopping by.

Very cute and I like the idea of wool applique....I have a couple of table runner patterns...I need to get motivated to do some stitching...it has been way too hot to think about anything over the past week....looking forward to the cooler weather and some motivation!

Love the design - love the fabric - how could I not - I have the pattern and have also 50 fat quarters of the fabric! Wow, that fabric is certainly eye-catching!

Lovely table runner. The wool is a very nice touch. I just love the Charisma fabric. I'm not sure yet what I will do with my collection.

I like those little Charmers patterns - I have quite a few. I was looking at the Quilted Bear website. That retreat to Harrison Hot Springs looks like a great one.

You are using one of my favorite fabric collections! I need to make more toppers and runners I think.
