Recently I wanted to make some birthday gifts for friends.
I began by making my first table runner using this free table top runner pattern from Quiltbug. It was really, really easy. I used some cute witchety grub fabric from my friend, midwife and quilter Michelle Steel. Having paired it with a green and red fabric, I realised when it was finished that I had made the perfect "Xmas in Oz" table runner for my Dad and his wife in the US, but it wasn't really suitable for my friend's birthday!
So I whipped up these two, using some left over squares from my Funky Stripes quilt. Voila!
I think I made all three in about three days, and that's as a SAHM to two children! Yes, I was obsessed.
