Table Runner Mania - Christmas Edition

Between menu planning, grocery shopping, cooking and overall general Turkey Day prep, I managed to get a little sewing done this week. To go along with our Charlie Brown Christmas theme, I have started the following table runners:
A disappearing nine-patch using more of that adorable Charlie Brown Christmas fabric.
More CB fabric this time using the Scrappy Star pattern by Heather Mulder Peterson's Little Charmers II.    I saw a similar table runner on Quilt Monster in My Closet and loved the idea of hand stitching to highlight the stars.  Thanks Christine for the idea!

And I am continuing to quilt a Christmas project.

I have moved to FMQ'ing the borders with loops and right away ran into CONSTANT thread breaking!  Yikes!  So frustrating!  After a process of elimination, I have changed to a larger needle and so far (fingers crossed) the thread is cooperating.  I really love the free styling of FMQ'ing so I hope this problem is solved!

Linking up with Freshly Pieced WIP Wednesday!  Happy Thanksgiving!

PS  Isn't Thanksgiving just the perfect holiday?


  1. Hey! I just posted about a Little Charmers II runner today too. Love yours! And such a cute edging around the D9P. Hope your FMQ is going better.

  2. What fun Charlie Brown Christmas fabric. Your work looks great!

  3. Great projects. Thanks for sharing.
    Have a great Thanksgiving,

  4. Congrats on solving the thread breaking problem. That can be very frustrating!
