I'm back- with a little Holiday spirit.

Here I am!
I have been away from this blog for a little while. I started having computer troubles and I just lost interest. Apparently I did something to my Google Nexxus tablet and can no longer scroll on the home page, so that I can only look at the first few blog posts on the blogger home page. If anyone has an idea how to fix this please contact me. For now I am using a pretty old, slow netbook. 

I have been very busy quilting though and have quite a few finishes lately. I have been trying to get organized to start Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville mystery "Celtic Solstice" that started on Black Friday. Check it out if you have never been to her site or done a mystery quilt- lots of info for new and seasoned quilters. This will be the third quilt mystery I have done and the main reason for starting this blog. Once a week, you can link up to show your progress. Its fun to see how others choose different fabrics and colors.

Here is a Holiday project- It is a "quilt-as-you-go method" table runner made from scraps. I used 1.5 and 2 inch strips.

You could also use different colors for different seasons, such as orange and black for Halloween, or spring colors for Easter. Or, if you're feeling really adventurous, you could probably make it double sided.

It is a very fast and easy little quilt to make- great for a gift or yourself! 

Hope this inspires everyone to get into the Holiday crafting spirit!
Thanks for looking!

  1. I love your table runner. What a cute idea that is. Thanks! (she said, stealing the idea and running away fast!)


I appreciate your comments!
