2012 is the year of the table runner in my house and I am starting the Christmas presents extra early this year! I recieved for Christmas just gone, a set of Christmassy themed charm squares from my sister and so what better to sew a table runner from them? On the weekend I was surfing the net looking for inspiration for a quilt I may be designing for a friend ( I say may cause I haven't said yes yet. When does one take the leap from sewing to give away and sewing for a commission??). Anyway, I came across this tutorial here for Charmed Whirlygig's which got me reaching for my stash of white tone on tone and cutting up squares. It all came together very quickly.
I only used 36 charm squares, I have enough left to make another. So here we are ready to sandwich on the weekend and do a quick stipple, bind and then next!
