Hi everyone, it is Connie from Freemotion by the River with another fast and easy tutorial for the Winter Blues Table Runner featuring the 12″ GO! Qube and also the new 12″ Companion Set. You’ll also find all kinds of quilting tutorials, quilt patterns, and other things on my blog.

Today I am sharing how to make a beautiful table runner that is perfect for the holidays and can also be used at any time of the year if it matches your decor. Notice the tree in the background of my photo? That is the one that we lost last week when a F1 tornado came through our little town. This is probably the last photo I took that has this tree in it. Let's get started!
