Poinsettia Table Runner

Those of you who follow my blog will know that since I have been trying to improve my free motion quilting, I found and now follow Lori Kennedy's blog 'The Inbox Jaunt'.  Lori recently hosted a Sunflower Sampler Quilt-A-Long, which was a lot of fun and I have already showed you the two Sunflower quilts that I made following along.



After her final post for the Sunflower QAL Lori posted about another quilt she had made using a Poinsettia as the central motif instead of a Sunflower.... perfect for Christmas.... and she encouraged her readers to have a go at the Poinsettia motif.



Her tutorial for the Poinsettia is here and, if you go and have a look you will see that at the end of the tutorial she suggests that these motifs would look great on a table runner.  Well, as I wanted to try the Poinsettia motif but already had the two Sunflower quilts, I decided that I would make myself a Poinsettia table runner for Christmas instead of another wall quilt.



As you can see, I quilted three Poinsettias in the middle of the runner, quilted in the ditch around the checked inner border and then added some simple loopy Holly quilting to the outer border.  I am really thrilled with my new table runner.... I loved quilting the Poinsettia design and it is all finished in time for Christmas!  Thank you Lori!

  3. Yay you for making it for yourself! The poinsettia design is just beautiful. It's a darker red - is it a wine color? Very pretty.
