Winter Flurries Zippity Zip Table Runner Quilt

Another quick wintery finish for me this year is this Winter Flurries (by Holly Taylor for Moda Fabrics) version of my Zippity Zip table runner quilt pattern.

All it takes to make this simple yet pretty tablerunner quilt is a charm pack (5" precut squares), literally. All I do is use the light squares as the background pieces and the darker squares for the main prints.

For me Winter Flurries (or similar fabric) is perfect this time of year when you are done with the holidays but not quite ready to break out spring. 

The prints are just perfect and are reminiscent of one of my all-time favorite fabric lines, also by Holly Taylor, Frosted Memories. The colors are warm and cozy yet bright enough to be cheerful. 

This Zippity Zip table runner quilt was quilted on my APQS Millennium longarm at the same time as the previous table runner. I just added one backing and it was wide enough to accommodate both. Putting some tricks I've learned watching other quilters into practice : )

I love wavy quilting almost as much as I love straight line quilting, and I don't anticipate giving up doing it freehand on my regular machine, but these perfect waves are kinda special, too.

It's a really fun little quilt to finish.
Happy quilting, everyone : )
