FALL TABLE RUNNER
I started out with Christmas fabric, I have loads of Christmas fabric! So I didn't want to buy anymore. I ended up sewing a couple pieces together to make them longer so that I could use them.
This is all scraps! I laid it out in the order I wanted it.
Then I cut out my winter fabrics. These are not scraps. This is beautiful new fabric I recently bought. I am in LOVE with it! The colors, the snowflakes, the piano music, cherry blossom trees, poinsettia, I'm tempted to just make "winter" the design scheme of my house because I love this so much! I will be making a cute wall hanging with all my leftovers and I can't wait to see how it turns out.
Laid out my winter next to my ALREADY SEWN TOGETHER Christmas (the Christmas was the back of my runner). I put some batting in between and then sewed it all together. Quilted, and bound.
Let's just admire these fabrics for a moment.. I makes me wish I were living in a winter wonderland. Which is odd since I hate snow...
YEAH! We have reversible! No wasting fabric on the back that we will never see.
This time around I used a nicer batting and I did some trickier free motion quilting. I really like the 100% cotton batting. It's so much nicer than anything else I've used. But if you want to save money there is nothing wrong with using a less expensive batting since this is just a seasonal decoration.
