My Christmas Table Runner in Quilts & More Magazine!

I can’t believe we’ve come to the end of the year! It was 2015 when I submitted ideas to the editors at Quilts and More Magazine, and a little later that year when they asked me if I’d like to do a series for 2017…. 2016 was already booked (remember, this was mid 2015, and we are always working ahead). It seemed that 2017 would NEVER get here!! And here we are at the end, talking about the Winter 2018 issue! This issue features my last table runner in the series of 4. I really enjoyed these projects, and I love how Q&M photographed them!

So, this issue’s project is Christmas themed- poinsettias, to be exact! All of the table runners had a different pieced background, this one has a “crazy quilt” background. It makes your projects so much more interesting, don’t you think? I also added buttons to the center of the flowers, just for fun :)

I also love the black combined with red and green- it just seems to make the colors brighter and prettier. My quilter, Daniela, added veins to the petals (which I guess, in a poinsettia, are really leaves??)

Don’t forget to grab your issue at your favorite quilt shop or bookstore, these tend to sell out fast.

You can also get a digital issue here.

Here are the previous table runners in this series:

Spring

Summer

Fall

Have you been collecting all of the issues? These runners have been displayed in my family room all year- it’s so nice when you have seasonal things which are all the same size, it makes it so easy to update your seasonal decor :)

    I’ve been buying “Quilts and More” in stores, but they seem to be cutting down on quilt magazines & I have a hard time finding it. I can usually get it at JoAnn’s Fabrics. But when I saw your beautiful Christmas runner I decided to subscribe. I have already printed out the pattern/instructions. I think I have the previous ones. I hope I have the sunflower one. I would like to make it for my sister-in-law as that is her favorite flower. Thank you so much.

    Hello Jacquelynne; I absolutely love your Poinsettia Table Runner, Christmas patterns always catch my attention. Plus, when they are as pretty as this it really holds my attention! I am so sorry that I missed the other Table Runner patterns, but shall keep my eyes open at thrift stores and garage sales where quilt magazines are easily found. Thank you for designing these lovely Table Runner patterns and sharing them. Have a great day!

    I love your table runner series and have saved each magazine they are in.
    Am looking forward to making them after I finish one or two projects I am currently working on.
