Running around on Design Wall Monday

I switched gears from working on quilts to working on some smaller projects and found myself running around with table runners.

This first one which is still on my design wall is going to top an IKEA Expedit bookcase. It is about 14" wide and 55" long. I used a lovely light minty green Grunge fabric for the background and the squares are from the Mimi collection by Chez Moi. I hope to get this quilted this week.

Now this runner is one of those Disappearing Nine Patches. I used Debbie Mumm fabrics from my stash.

It looks wonderful on the table in my dining area. I love the rich colors against the creamy white and that candle holder makes me happy with the sparkly red candles. They were just inexpensive candles that I used spray glitter on. I am in love with that stuff.

I put all the Christmas decorations away and brought out my snowmen and a couple of Debbie Mumm wintry quilts. I'll show some pictures tomorrow. I impressed myself with how much of my snowman collection I found space to display.

Happy stitching-

  1. Carol - Your table runner is perfect for that table!! I keep saying I need to do one for my table but . . . .

  2. That first runner reminds me of the wiggly whimsy quilt I made a while back. I like the simple layout. :0)

  3. Love the runner! I'm working on some smaller projects right now too, just to get them out of the way. Good Luck with your goals in 2014.

  4. Wunderschön Dein Tischläufer in den warmen Farben, genau mein Geschmack.

    Liebe Grüße

  5. Great table runners. Snowmen make a great transition from Christmas to winter.


Thanks for stopping by. I really enjoy reading your comments. They make my day!
