Gifts Galore Table Runner

Technicolor Tidings brings us Christmas in full COLOR.  It reminds me of the first time I watched Disney on TV in color (yeah, I just dated myself!).  It was just breathtaking!  Technicolor Tidings is fun, bright and lively so when I saw it for the first time, I saw presents, presents and more presents all wrapped in these lovely hues of pink, green and teal.  Of course, being wrapped in fabric, one MUST have fluffy bows, hence, the bows on the packages.

The gifts in the table runner are sleek, simple and whimsical, just like the fabric.  The construction of the kit is very doable for apprentice quilters.  Advanced quilters will love the ease in building it as it can be on your table in a day or sewn and cleverly wrapped for a gift within a day’s time.  You have the option of hand appliquéing or fusing the bows so, it truly is achievable!

I thoroughly loved designing this project with the fun fabrics, joyful subject matter and simple composition.  I hope Gifts Galore brings as much amusement to you constructing it as it did for me creating it.

    This is darling! I usually like more traditional Christmas colors, but this is eye-catching and fun. Great job, Mari!

    Great new lines! Yes, some of it is on it’s way to a new home (mine). Can’t wait to make the package throw and this table runner. So bright and cheerful.
