Yet another charm pack table runner. But not for me this time. This is a Christmas gift for my mother. Aaaaack!!!! Christmas already? I know, if I were truly a dedicated sewist, I would be completing such gifts late into the night on Christmas Eve. Oh well, call me a novice.
The colors are perfect for my mother’s home. She likes soft, pastels and this fits the bill. This is a great pattern by Sandy Gervais – it sews together quickly and it is fairly inexpensive. It only requires one charm pack, and a small amount of batting and backing fabric. I have a number of these table runners around my home. This post and this post (on the back of the chair) are two examples of a couple variations that I made of the pattern.
I know my mother will not turn this over to use the back side, so I used a vanilla colored kona cotton for a simple backing. Here’s a picture of the back, plain and simple.
Here’s a close up of the quilting.
On another completely unrelated note, I finally decided on a skirt pattern to go with my cardigan (Simplicity 2154). I’ll post more on that later this week. Have a sunny, cloud-free week.

Sewing is my passion and I always have a notion to sew, but sometimes I get distracted with other crafty endeavors. I share my creative accomplishments (and sometimes failures) here on my blog. I am a licensed Martha Pullen beginning sewing instructor and serger instructor. For 5 years, I taught new owners how to use their Bernina sewing machines at my local Bernina dealer, and for 2 years I taught serger project classes at my local Baby Lock dealer. These days, my professional time is spent retailing handmade purse and bag making supplies and patterns. I also sell a small selection of fabric as well as my handmade bags and purses.
