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.
a Christmas Charm pack
Solid/mottled Grey (about 1/2yd)
GO! Circle-2", 3", 5" (uses 5" circle)
GO! Bow-2 1/2", 3 1/2", 4 1/2" (uses largest ribbon)
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.
Also iron on Heat N Bond onto the back of 4 red charms ( I used 2 different red prints)
and cut out 4 large bows
Sew together 6 sets of 4 triangles into squares like these
Sew together one Ohio Star block like this
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!
