Hi Fellow Quilters,
Welcome to our “house”! We’re so glad that you’ve come to visit today. Have a seat! Can we offer you something to drink? Would you like a snack too? We love having our friends stop in for a chat!
We’re really excited to participate in the “Welcome to My House” blog hop, hosted by our friend Carol at Just Let Me Quilt! You’ll find links for all of the participating blogs at the end of this post, so take your time and enjoy yourself.
When we heard about this blog hop, we started thinking about designs that we’ve made that include houses.
Our farm quilts each include a barn, a house for the farm animals!
Our new Christmas tree skirt pattern has fun Victorian houses, for the mouses!
But I wanted to make something especially for the blog hop, so I created this fun table runner!
I love the Victorian house designs that we created for our new Christmas tree skirt, so I started by making one block of each style.
I decided to make my houses red and green, since this is a Christmas table runner. The house backgrounds have “snow” on the bottom and “sky” on the top. I included two snowy trees on each house block, just for fun!
I’ve always loved basket weave designs, so I decided to make a simple basket weave panel for the center of my table runner.
The basket weave section was made with strips of fabric sewn together and then I cut the strips into sections to make the blocks. Easy to make, and so pretty!
I framed the pieced section and applique blocks with a deep green tonal print, and added a pretty red print binding to finish off the table runner!
If you’d like to make your own “Welcome to My House” table runner, you can purchase the pattern by clicking the link below. This pattern will be offered exclusively on the Ms P Designs website through mid-October.
Welcome to My House Table Runner
The 16.5″ by 50.5″ table runner pattern includes applique layout templates for the houses and trees, along with instructions for making the pieced center section and finishing the runner.
