Peppermint Candy

Christmas decorating has really hit me hard this year! After enjoying all of my fall runners and toppers around the house, the furniture now looks bare. So I've been hard at work, trying to fix that. Introducing another runner, Peppermint Candy!


Made for my coffee table, this one measures 13 1/2" x 45". Using Kona solids, which have really grown on me, this runner was super simple to put together. It so reminds me of peppermint sticks and green peppermint candies! 

Here's a closeup of the quilting, using Glide white, and red.


Each pinwheel was echoed, then the white background was stitched with straight lines. For the red candy stripe, I used a rope ruler to give me those pretty S curves. The whole runner is just yummy!

If you would like this bit of sweetness on your table, there is a pattern available for it, both at my Craftsy store here, and my Etsy store, here.

So now I have another new runner to enjoy, along with O Tannenbaum!


I'm hoping to get to a topper, and maybe a quilt done (mainly to use up the Christmas stash), but that may be a bit ambitious. The living room needs a bit more color, and more Christmas!

Happy Quilting!
