I love this time of year. I get to take some time off and sew fun stuff (rather than deadline type things). Don't get me wrong, I love, love, love designing and writing patterns. I love sewing them too. But even more, I love sewing to create stuff. We're all "makers" of some kind aren't we? This delightful pattern was a gift from my friend Beth Helfter, EvaPaige Quilt Designs. I wasn't sure I'd get it done before Christmas, but here is it on my kitchen table!Â You can find the pattern here at Beth's website. She also has the tools you need to make this cute runner. The curves are created with the Leaves Galore "Petite" template by Sue Pelland Designs; the pattern includes instructions for cutting without the tool as well. Thanks Beth!
