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?
I Quilted it
- with bubbles in the background
- and straight lines on the Halloween fabric.
This is a video I did years ago, but it's still how I quilt bubbles.
I also give you a ton of ways to quilt your own quilt in my Teach me to Machine Quilt Book
I used the precut sizes a lot, saves me time.
I LOVE this darling fabric line Dot Dot Boo! from my friends at Me & My sister. Barb and Mary used a fresh shade of orange, that is lighter and I love it!
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!
- My Triangle & Machine Quilting Books
- Bats Cat's and Jacks! fabric
- Darling BOO Fabric line
- Trim up Ruler
- Green Solid fabric
- Grunge white
Just have strips? Make one of my fast table runners from my machine quilting book!
This table runner is SO Fun and showcases cute buttons!
Another fun table runner I've done is Spooky Delights!
If you don't applique you can make just the pumpkin ends!
