Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow...on my table runner!

I'm always looking for ways to make gifts, items to go into gift baskets for fundraisers, and items for my home, in a fast and easy way!  I am truly amazed that I was able to make this cute table runner in less than 20 minutes (probably more like 12).

Don't you think this would make a cute gift ?  And wouldn't it (or a  version of it) look great in your home?  This was so easy, I've truly fallen in love with snowflakes and tablerunners!.

While I love snowflakes I'd never want to take the time to cut a snowflake out by hand.  But with the AccuQuilt and the Holiday Medley Die it was very easy, fast & accurate!.   The AccuQuilt made it so easy to make a detailed applique design!     Think of the possibilities with these cute snowflakes, trees, holly and holly berries that you can create with this die (stockings, decorated purses, decorated jackets, decorated dishtowels, etc)!  It is so easy you could easily make oodles of gifts and decorate your home with lovely items using this die and an AccuQuilt Go, all by Christmas!

For this table runner I used a pattern from Marlene Lewellyn, of Sandy Quilts.  Her easy table runner is truly a design you can make in ten (10) minutes or less.  I couldn't believe how easy her instructions were to follow and how fun it was to make a table runner using her method.  And I loved decorating my table runner with my AccuQuiltGo snowflakes on the back, creating a reversible table runner!
