Hi there! I have something fun to share with you today! Starting today, we will be starting our Christmas Blitz series!  Each week, we will share a new bundle of fabric and a coordinating project!! 




We have invited some talented quilters to join in on the series - so be sure to check back each Tuesday and see who is joining us! 


I am kicking things off with this fun Holiday Magic Bundle!  I hand picked each piece that is included in this bundle and I absolutely love how it turned out! :) Scroll down to see what I made using this week's Christmas Blitz Bundle!

------------------------------------------------------------



I love the traditional colors of Christmas - you can't go wrong with red and green when it comes to Christmas! When picking out these fabrics, I picked the mitten fabric first and kind of centered my bundle on that print.  

Once I had my bundle picked out - I designed this fun table runner that features my favorite block -  the PINWHEEL! :)  I wanted it to look like a pinwheel was in the wreath and so I started designing and came up with this: 
47" x 20" 


This may look like a complicated block, but it is actually very simple and comes together really quickly! I am thinking I need an entire quilt out of this block! Wouldn't that look fabulous! ;)

 I made three pinwheel wreath blocks - added sashing and a border and viola -- a super festive table runner! 



Alright, let's get started! 

The table runner measures 47" x 20"


Supplies (click on links): 



Reserve the green grunge print for binding

Reserve the dark red snowflake print for use as an accent piece on the backing (optional)

Cutting: 

Out of Mitten print: 
4 - 3.5" x 6.5" rectangles (A)

Out of Red Maize print
8 - 3.5" x 6.5" rectangles (A)

Out of Green Holly print: When cutting these pieces you will need to cut two strips 6.5" x width of fat quarter, and then sub cut your rectangles.  Use the left over pieces to cut your squares.  You will use almost the entire fat quarter. 
8 - 3.5" x 6.5" rectangles (D)
8 - 3.5" x 3.5" squares (B)

Out of Green Criss Cross print
4 - 3.5" x 6.5" rectangles (D)
4 - 3.5" x 3.5" squares (B)

Out of Snowflake print: (background)
24 - 3.5" x 3.5" squares (C)
4 - 12.5" 2" strips (E)
2 - 2" x 42.5" strips (F)

Out of Red Grunge Dot: 
2 - 3" x 15.5" strips (G)
2 - 3" x 47.5" strips (F) - You will need to piece these strips

Out of Green Grunge: (for binding) Instead of the normal 2.5" binding strips, you will need to cut them a little smaller so you can get enough out of your fat quarter.  If you don't want to cut them this size, you can purchase an extra 1/4 yard and that would be plenty!
8 - 2 1/4 " x width of fabric strips 









Now you are ready, to baste, quilt and bind! I used the left over red print and other scraps from my bundle to piece my backing along with the extra 3/4 yard that I recommended! :) 


I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and make one of these cute Holiday Magic Table Runners for yourself! :)

Be sure to come back next week to see the next bundle/project!

Talk to you soon!
