You guessed it.... It's another Christmas themed project! This is my second time making the Santa Claus table runner. You can read all about the first one here.
The first one sat in my Etsy shop, for sale, for just over a year. And as soon as it sold.... I had someone making an inquiry as to whether I would be willing to make another. I don't normally like to take on custom orders, but couldn't resist!
I explained that I did not have the exact same fabrics to make this second runner. And chose fabrics from my stash to suit. So while this one is a little different from the original.... It's still just as cute. When it came time for quilting, I quilted with my walking foot in organic wavy lines across the width using Superior Threads' So Fine in grey on top and plain white Guetermann in the bobbin.
This fun little runner was made using Riley Blake's Apple of My Eye Stripe in red for Santa's rosy cheeks. The backing is Winter Garden by Susan Winget for Steele Creek Studio, which I found two years ago at Fabric.com. I fell in love with this print and bought it when it was on sale. I bought A LOT. It may seem like I should be out of this fabric by now... But there's more!
The binding matches the "belt" border. And I love the little yellow belt buckles!
This "Santa Claus" quilted table runner finished at 11" x 38"
and was the 19th use of my 2nd edition of 100 labels
ordered from Ikaprint.
