Hi, I'm Bea from Beaquilter and I'm excited to bring you another fun tutorial that's fun and funky and modern and uses a Christmas charm pack and a matching grey.

Materials needed:

a Christmas Charm pack

Solid/mottled Grey (about 1/2yd)

GO! Ohio Star-12"

GO! Circle-2", 3", 5" (uses 5" circle)

GO! Bow-2 1/2", 3 1/2", 4 1/2" (uses largest ribbon)

Fusible web

Matching thread colors (in this case Grey and Red)


Set aside 4 red charms for the ribbons.

Start off by sewing the charm pieces together very randomly and cutting at odd angles and re-sewing them together

Make them large enough to fit over the triangles on the GO! Ohio Star die (and the large circle)

Make 8 for the Ohio Star and 4 for the circle.

 Iron Heat N Bond onto the back of 4 of them for the circles.

With the Ohio Star die, cut out 32 triangles from the scrappy sections.

Also cut out 8 from the grey and 5 squares from the Ohio Star die.

Cut out 2  12 1/2" squares in grey and iron on the circles and ribbons as shown, leaving enough room around for seam allowance.

With matching grey thread free motion/ straight stitch the bows and circles, I did a sloppy double line on all of them and also added a bit on the bows

Experiment with the fun stitches on your machine and stitch out a "string/ribbon" in red above the bows.

I have no idea what this stitch is called and what it's for, but I thought it looked fun so I stitched two rows of it over each bow :)

Sew top together into table runner like this and quilt and bind as desired.

  It even looks good in front of the fireplace!
