Christmas Pinwheels Table Runner

I haven't sewn any Pinwheels since the Baby Quilt I did for a Moda Bake Shop tutorial. And I am having so much fun making table runners for my new buffet, that I thought these Pinwheels would be perfect!
And they were! And I love the fabrics I found for it too. It's got some Red and White Polka Dots and some really cute stripes in the mix.
I grabbed some Christmas greenery from the garage for the photo. I can't wait to really start decorating for Christmas! I used 5x5 fabric packs to make the pinwheels. You can find the tutorial over at the Moda Bake Shop.
I've decided to start making my Table Runners/Buffet Runners; Reversible. What a novel concept, ehy? LOL. So this one when flipped over, could be left out year around, or it would be really cute for Valentines Day!
I free motion quilted it, in a sorta swirly pattern. I'm trying to branch out a bit from my normal stippling. I got better as I went along and will try doing a swirly pattern again. If you totally love this fabric, like I do. Guess what?! You're in luck. I've got some in my Etsy Store. Oh yeah! My elves has been busy, busy, busy. {elves? ha ha, I wish!}

What you see is what there is. So don't wait!

I have a really cute project coming up. I hope to finish it in the next couple of days. It uses 3.5" x 3.5" fabric squares and it's oh so cute! You'll see a bunch of 3.5" fabric packs in the store. I wrapped em up all Christmas-y like! They'd make great stocking stuffers or little gifts.

jingle, jingle, jingle...

The red & green pinwheel runner looks really good on the white cabinet. Bright and cheery colors.

I love it!
Your pinwheel quilt was going to be my next project after all the Christmas gifts are finished, but I think I might have to fit this one in. You are so clever!

It is really sweet. Reminds me of a soft peppermint icecream dream. Really pretty. Makes me want to stop the world, get off, and sew!

Andy said...

I love the red/white stripe. It reminds me of peppermint candies. The reversible idea is great too! I just acquired a console table that needs a little runner - now I'll be making it reversible!

Hello again.
Do you have measurements for your table runner? Would one charm pack be sufficient? I could go crazy in your Etsy shop! :o) Too cute of fabrics!
