Post 3 of 4 in my Fabric Fabric - Halloween edition, is all about Panels and table runners! Both are SUPER fast to stitch up and magically change you room
Panels are GREAT for decorating. Fast, easy, and cute! Or spooky in the case of Mr. Chillingsworth. I'm rather fond of him myself.
I made this for my niece who loves all things spooky. The panel is still available but the companion fabrics are not. BUT you can find other fabulous fabrics and do this basic idea for ANY panel with my directions.
Make your panel the size of my center in the directions by adding strips around it.
Make your quilt bigger or smaller with more or less rounds, simple!
Maybe I need to do a step by step for creating something like this with any panel.. would you be interested in that?
Here is my question.. I LOVE it so much I think i want a lap quilt from it. I have enough fabric .. so do I go for it? It will be for next year, but my thought is to have the squares cut and sew the HST while i sew other things. That is the beauty of HST, they can be be done so easily when you start & stop other patchwork. Just like I do for squares (SEE that article HERE)
The beauty of this runner is we can create them fast and easy with ANY fabric, instant change of decorations!
Should I go for it?... keep reading, I repeated my other runners below!

Many of you know about the Wonderful Quilt show in Houston Texas held in late October or early November called Quilt Festival. Quilts Inc also hosts 2 trade show each year and over my 23 years in the industry I’ve meet quite a few of the staff. I wanted to focus on Learning so I invited the super talented Marcia Barker, the Director of Education, to give me a few highlights of what is at Quilt Festival for you to learn from.
I’m excited to chat again with Karen Miller of Red Bird Quilt Company. It’s been awhile and Karen has been out teaching and creating some amazing programs I want you to know about. One is about thread education as we both love and do projects with Aurifil. So today you’ll learn more about thread weights and what they are for.
