Figgy Pudding Runner

Sew and learn, right?  This project started as an attempt to make two placemats out of my Figgy Pudding scraps.  I found a pattern that I wanted to try, so I thought it would be fun to try it on placemats before attempting a full quilt.  I cut out all the pieces and layed them out in the floor.  I measured and felt confident that I had enough for the perfect sized placement.  After I sewed everything together, I started to square them off, when suddenly I realized that I was wrong... WAY wrong.  Instead of trying to figure out how to fix it, I just decided to make a table runner.  I think it turned out well!  I like the pattern, but I don't think I have the patience to make an entire quilt this way. 

Most of the fabric is Moda Figgy Pudding, and the backing is an adorable reindeer pattern from JoAnn's. 

Merry Christmas!

  1. Pretty cute mistake here, Lauren! I like the way it looks like a braid. I have the reindeer print, I liked it, too. Didn't use it yet, it went into the ever growing "collection"... YIKES!
