"MERRY WINTER'S NIGHT"

A completed winter table runner.  I have had this done for a number of days but had not taken a picture of it.  This is "Merry Winter's Night" and was made from a pattern designed by Cheri Saffiote-Payne.  It is in the current winter issue of Primitive Quilts and Projects.
This is much like the version shown in the magazine.  I left a star off of each end as I thought that was all it needed.  It was an easy piece to make.  Twenty-five snowball blocks and then the applique.  Cheri suggested doing a faced applique which is where you cut two identical pieces with seam allowance.  Place right sides together and stitch the whole way around on the sewing line.  Then cut a slit in one piece of fabric, turn the right side out through that slit.  Press and then an overcast hand stitch though you could do it by machine.  I used wool for the scarf, hat, and arms so that is a single layer only.  I enjoyed making this.

My knee is doing better but I don't want to say I am on the road to recovery from whatever is wrong.  I have gotten better a couple times and in a flash, been right back to a low point again.  But I am hopeful.

We are having unseasonably cool weather here in Florida.  But we can't complain too much.  There are parts of the country in not very good shape due to the hurricane.  We will be having a warm-up soon.

Thanks for stopping by.

  3. Wow, you made this already? Looks so cute! I got my kit late last week and getting excited about started making some time after my crazy work days get over soon. I'm also excited about faced applique method. It'll be a lot of fun! Glad to hear you feel a little better now. I think the key is not to go anywhere, but staying in the sewing room to get better faster!

  9. WHAT!! You have this made and I haven't even received my Primitive Quilts Magazine!! Our mail is SO slow!!
    Glad the knee is better...maybe it's the change in weather. My mother could always tell changes in the weather through her arthritis!!
    You take care!

  13. Another great little prim piece. The quilting is so perfect for this. I haven't seen the original, but I don't see how it could have been better than this. I'm thinking a subscription to this magazine might be a good idea to put on my Christmas list. : )

  14. My gosh Karen, you do such beautiful work and so quickly. I also think that four stars would have been too many. The two offset stars are just right. I'm glad to hear your having a better day today and I hope it continues and also warms up for you very soon. Keeping you in my prayers. Hugs...
    **Here in Utah we are having unseasonably warm weather. Of course, we had 3" of snow 4 days ago and it was below freezing all day long for several days...now we are in the mid 70s for a few days. Ah...Utah weather, LOL.

  16. I love using that double faced method for applique sometimes - it can feel like wasting fabric, but sometimes the added dimension is worth the price of a few bits of fabric *s*
