Christmas Hearth Runner

I am so excited to finally share this project with you!

In the new Christmas issue of Fat Quarterly  my contribution 
 the Quilted Hearth Runner to cover your brick hearth during the holidays

I would put decorations on my brick hearth, but I've always wanted a quilted cover for it. 

The finished size of my Hearth Cover is 20 1/2" x 82 1/2"  
this allowed some overhang in the front.  You can adjust the size to fit your own hearth.

This also will work as a bed scarf at the end of your bed!

You can find the pattern directions as well as many other Christmas projects in Issue 19 Christmas 2014 of Fat Quarterly 

I hope you enjoy!
I would love to see any projects you make with my pattern, you can tag me on Instagram (@fairlymerry)
or (and)
 add your project to my Facebook Page (like my page for updates on my projects) 
or (and)
add your project to the Fat Quarterly Flickr Group

Keep Calm and Quilt On!

Flight Path

Thank you for visiting and reading about my quilt 
'Flight Path'

I drew the design for this quilt for the Oakshott Autumn Bundle 
and it is originally posted here.

The name of this quilt comes from a poem 
'On The Flight Path' 
about the migration of geese in the fall.  I thought of the poem while I was working on this quilt, as I wanted to show a migration of fall colors in the flying geese blocks.  

The quilting is matchstick, about 1/8" apart and I used 4 different Aurifil colors that matched the background colors, 28 wt quilting thread.  

All fabrics are Oakshott cottons
After washing 
42" x 62"

I am entering in Amy's Creative Side Bloggers Quilt Festival - Original Design.
I hope you will take a look at the other quilts and cast your vote, for me if it pleases you!
