Bed Runners

This year I decided to make a bed runner for each of my nieces and nephews.  Since my sister has 6 kids it was a big project and I wasn't sure I would finish before the holidays.

There are three girls so they each got a pastel colored bed runner.  I used up every piece of pre-cut fabric I had in the house.  This pink one was made with watercolor squares. I used grid interfacing to iron the squares and then sew in rows.  This made the sewing go quickly.

This green/yellow quilt used larger pre-cut squares that were part of a set.  I added a green solid to the ends to increase the size.
The purple runner used pre-cut 5 inch squares. I tried a pattern from a bed runner book which came out very nice.
I know my nieces are going to enjoy these. I added a label to each quilt with the girls name so they would know who was getting which quilt.
The boys got quilts with darker colors.  This quilt is an I Spy quilt and is going to my youngest nephew.  He will have a lot of fun looking for the hidden items such as a clock and strawberries.
This quilt was made from a panel which had houses on it. I just love this fabric and it really makes a nice pattern.

The last quilt was mad using pre-cut squares and triangle squares that were left over from another quilt.  The boarder is clouds and stars which gives the quilt a nice definition.

Holiday Quilts

This adorable table runner is from a patter from All People Quilt.  This site has great free patterns.  I love the quant houses and the leaning tree.  So festive and cute.
This table runner was a great chance to use up holiday scraps.  It goes together quickly as it is just strips.
