Snowy Peppermint Table Runner

I took one of these...And made one of these...

I made a similar one last year. Everyone just loved it. So I thought I'd make a few more this year. This year I added the prairie points. (you know I love me some prairie points).
I quilted it on the machine in a swirly and wavy pattern. Love how it turned out.
So cute fabrics too! I had fun picking these out. Snowflakes, Dots, Plaids and more. Each strip of fabric is 2 1/2" x 11" long. I sewed 15 of them together. Put a 1 1/2" white border around all four sides with prairie points on the ends. I quilted it, than sewed the backing to the front, right sides together, leaving an opening to turn. Turn right side out, hand sew the opening closed and top stitch around the outside edge. Easy Peasy. I've put together a few Fabric Rolls (fabric candy) and have them for sale in my etsy store.
1 Snowman Fabric Roll is left .

I'm in love with this snowman fabric, so I'll have a few fabric rolls of snowman goodness too.
Snowmen, Dots, Plaids, a bit of gray and white and talk about adorable...
A nasty germ has invaded me and my bubble. So ridiculous. This is the THIRD time I've been sick in the last 2 1/2 months. I said I was DONE! Obviously this germ didn't get the memo.
So pardon me while I go snuggle with a quilt and my heating pad and attempt to be entertained by the t.v. Lying around watching t.v. all day, is so not my thing. Wish me luck. ooxx`jodi

So pretty! I love the prairie points, too, and those fabrics look marvelous together. Very appropriate for a cherry lover, too. Hope you feel back to normal very soon, those dang germs!

I love the red and white fabric you used in your table runner. It's so fresh and appealing. I LOVE it!!! I do hope you start feeling better soon. I hate feeling under the weather especially since we can't totally stop being a mother. I'm sure you know what I mean. Hugs to you!!!

That peppermint table runner is the cutest thing ever! LOVE it. I need to start my very first batch of prairie points for my current project and I'm terrified. I think they're so cute but am nervous to try it.

This is adorable! I've been wanting to make some little runners to go under some of my Christmas decorations that I have sitting around.

I hope you feel better!

THAT runner is so stinkin' cute! I love it. I am in charge of a Christmas dinner tonight and wish I had 8 of those, one for each table! I want to make one right now! Thanks Jodie

Hey, I just got diagnosed with walking pneumonia! Four different meds, and all poor little Janie wanted to do was buy your candy roll fabric, but alas “a day late and a dollar shot” as the saying goes. Feel better Jodi!!

I have some of the peppermint swirls fabric that I included in a gift quilt for a coworker. I love these combinations of red and white. The "candy rolls" are cute!

Carrie P. said...

The tablerunner is so pretty. Cute little bundles of fabric candy too.
Get well soon. 3rd time! Hopefully this is the last.

Hi! My name is erica. Would you be my friend? said...

Hmm...I should make one of those! I LOVE the sweet little fabric roll! Wish I had some fabric-loving friends to give them to as gifts...

Andrea said...

So cute! One of these days I'm going to make one of "your" runners and with prairie points! :)
Hope you get feeling better soon!

Thimbleanna said...

Oh Jodi! I can NOT BELIEVE you are sick again! That's awful. I hope you get better soon. Love the cute table runner -- I'm with you -- I love the prarie points -- can you believe my DIL doesn't like them? I have major re-training to do before she has children because the little babies WILL get quilts with prairie points LOL!

SOOOO cute. How funny that I was just thinking of making some sort of peppermint stripe table runner. I just made a pinwheel runner following your tutorial. I will be posting pics to my blog and crediting you soon. Thanks for sharing your talents.

I always love to check out your posts. Thanks for all the great ideas. This tablerunner is extra cute! Btw, where did you get your candy cane string? I've been looking for some everywhere-- obviously not in the right place. Hope you feel better soon!

Hey Jodi,
I hope the doctor was able to give you something to help you feel better. As we discussed, I posted about your table runner on my blog and it's so inspiring! Thanks for giving me permission! I really hope you feel much better soon.

upstateLisa said...

Gosh Jodi, just checking your blog and hope you are feeling better soon and that they find out what is going on! I love the red/white prairie points!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Another darling project. Well done. Clapping!

mooneyequalsmc2 said...

Your table runners are amazing! Wish I had your talent!

quilter000 said...

Hi Jodi, thanks for asking me to post my runners I just can not fine the flicker group.

Kathy said...

Your table runner tutorial is very helpful. Thank you for designing this on your blog.

Kathy said...

Just wanted to let you know I made up your fun snowy peppermint runner last night and I have everything turned right side out. I have stitched the edge and pressed it. I am pleased that all there is left to do is the quilting. It is such a cute project for Christmas. Hope you get to feeling like yourself again soon.

~Babychaser~ said...

Ok... so I too love the prairie points! Could you do a tutorial sometime as to how you do it on the quilts? I saw your tutorial for the pumpkin towels. Is it the same? Or do you do something different?

You've also sold me on machine quilting and I'll be spending birthday (from September) money on a walking foot and free quilting too tonight. I'm so excited. I've always been a die hard hand quilter, but with 3 little ones 4 and under, that just means I don't quilt much.

Just found your blog recently and LOVE it!

Thanks for all your inspiration!
