The Halloween table runner is finished. I really enjoyed playing with the fabrics from the Guising fabric collection by Lizzy House. I just love her fabrics, especially the Pearl Bracelets! I also threw in a few other fabrics that I felt blended with the collection nicely. The solid fabric is Robert Kaufman Kona cotton in snow.
This is another half square triangle project that is arranged to form a chevron pattern. For some reason I keep getting drawn in to half square triangle projects.
I love closely quilted lines and thought they would work well with this chevron pattern. This is quilted with sort of a random pattern, but each color section is quilted the same way. Each of the squares are 4" and the finished size is 16 inches by 47.5 inches.
If you have read my previous post about the start of this table runner, here is where the Flea Market Fancy comes it. I love the idea of a making a quilted item for a holiday, but I have such a hard time putting it away for the rest of the year.
So I decided to make this table runner reversible. Use it for Halloween and once it has passed, flip it over and use it the rest of the year. How great is that?
I love Denyse Schmidt's Flea Market Fancy collection. This was the first time I cut into many of these fabrics. I have had them on my shelf for a while waiting for the right time. I decided I was being silly. If you have them, you might as well use them and enjoy it!
This is such a bright and cheerful (I think I always say that) table runner and the quilted chevron pattern shows up nicely on both sides.
Update** I have listed a pattern for this reversible table runner in my Etsy shop if you would like to make one for your home or as a gift. Here is the listing: Reversible Table Runner.
I can hardly believe I just finished a project for Halloween. Where did the summer go? I have a sudden urge to run to the beach and soak up as much sun and surf as I can before it gets too cool. I love autumn, but I love summer more and I don't think I am ready for it to be over.
On a happier note, are you working on or planning a holiday project? I would love to hear what projects you are up to.
