The final table runner for my 2019 “Christmas in July” has been published on my sister-site at BOMquilts.com! And I’m sad 🙁 to see it go. I have had so much fun each year :), designing & making my “Christmas in July” patterns, that I am always left feeling a bit depressed when August rolls around.
This week’s table runner is the most difficult of all, but I have faith that even a beginner can handle making it, especially if you’ve followed along with all of my previous table runner’s!
All FIVE (5) of my 2019 “Christmas in July” patterns will remain on my BOMquilts.com website until I either expire or I can no longer keep up with my site. Don’t think ya’ll have to worry about either one of those things happening anytime soon 🙂 so let’s just say that the patterns will be there whenever you’re ready for them. But my best suggestion is to print them out as soon as is reasonably possible so that you have them when you are ready to make them!
If you’re looking to make yourself something larger than a table runner, check out my “Christmas Pine’s Table Runner” page at BOMquilts.com & you’ll see a number of different options to make from just this single table runner and/or quilt block. I’m pretty sure that ya’ll will like what you see 🙂 !
There’s only one more pattern left, and that’ll be published on July 30, 2019 & then my 2019 “Christmas in July” project will be completed! But don’t you worry your pretty little head about it! As long as I am able to keep up with publishing free patterns, both this blog and my BOMquilts.com website will remain intact (as well as all of the links associated with them), and you’ll be able to download the *free* patterns for however long you’d like to wait on them. But don’t wait too long! 🙂
Please remember that anything you make from my projects and/or patterns is for “Personal Use Only” and that is one of my steadfast rules!
Just in case you haven’t heard and/or read about it, on my sister site (BOMquilts.com) I’m having my annual “Christmas in July” quilt program & I think you’re going to LOVE ♥ what I have in store for you! There will be five different & original table runner patterns posted, once a week (on Tuesday’s) throughout the month of July!
The first table runner has been revealed and here’s what it looks like:
This year it’s all about table runners. But don’t let the word “runners” get you to thinking that you can *only* make a table runner out of each of these projects 🙂 . Oh no, don’t go thinking that! Here’s just a little sneak peek at what you can do with the table runner pattern shown above…
If you just make four “Roman Squares Quilt Blocks” (instead of the table runner) you’ll end up with a 36″ square Table Topper.
If you make six “Roman Squares Table Runners”, you’ll end up with a foot warmer for a bed & the size would be 18″ x 54″.
See what I mean? And the list goes on and on, five different table runners & innumerable number’s of quilty projects that you can make from just those table runner free patterns!
What are you waiting for? Jump on over to my sister site & download the “Roman Squares Table Runner” free pattern. And then mark up your calendar, so you don’t miss a single pattern that’s due to be posted every Tuesday throughout July, 2019!
No, not MY grand baby, silly! 🙂 A friend’s grand baby or, better than that, her soon-to-be grandson.
Braxton’s Nana chose the fabrics based on the colors her daughter wanted to use in his nursery. I designed the quilt top and embroidered Braxton’s name (with help) and the head shot on the center quilt block. Meloney Funk quilted the quilt on her longarm, using freehand leaves to signify the stag walking through a forest and since she knew I had two or three quilts due at about the same time, she also took care of the binding for me! She’s a keeper!
Braxton lives in the southwest so he probably won’t need his quilt until November. I hope he isn’t too big for it by then!
Then I mentioned to my friend that since she’d already paid for the embroidery files, I could embroider them on just about anything that would be needed for a baby – burp cloths, bibs, onesies, cloth diapers – you name it, I can usually embroider on it. She gave it a thought and decided he could use some bibs so she ordered them and had them sent to me. I stitched them out and they were so very adorable!
Braxton’s mommy loved all of his gifts and now that Braxton is three month’s old, he’s getting some good use out of his bibs.
