I love decorating with quilts for the holidays; it always makes my home look so warm and cozy. I especially like to decorate with snowflakes and snowmen, because they can stay out long past the Christmas holiday!
I created this fun Snowflake runner to bring some cheer from my home to yours!
14 1/2″x 40 1/2″
Inside – Five different red strips 2 1/2″xWOF
Border – Two red strips 2 1/2″x36″ and two strips 2 1/2″x14 1/2″
Snowflakes – Cut three snowflakes from the Snowflake template. I made all my snow flakes the same size at 7 1/2″, but you could enlarge or reduce the template to make your snowflakes different sizes.
Binding – 1/4 yard
Backing – 1/2 yard
1) Lay out the five inside strips and sew together along the long edges making the inside runner. Trim length to 36″.
2) Sew border strips to each of the long edges of the inside runner.
3) Sew border strips to each short end of the inside runner.
4) Position and appliqué snowflakes onto the runner.
5) Quilt as desired! I quilted around each snowflake and quilted wavy lines across the red strips.
6) Bind runner.
I hope that you can take a bit a time for yourself and create a snowflake runner for your home!

A big welcome to all the Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks blog tourists! I am so excited to share with you my block, “Dancing Leaves” appearing in the latest issue of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 6.
My block was inspired by the beauty of autumn leaves as they change colors and fall to the ground only to be picked up by the wind and begin their autumn dance!
Continuing with the fall theme, I came up with a few ideas how to use my dancing leaves block. How about setting it with four patch star blocks and framed nine patch blocks?
Or how about downsizing my dancing leaves blocks and use it for a border around a center of star blocks?
Too much appliqué for you? How about setting variable sized dancing leaves blocks in some double monkey wrench blocks?
Like smaller projects? How about a table runner set with four patch star blocks.
The possibilities are endless! So how will you set your dancing leaves block?

To complement the 100 Block series, check out the latest issue of Quilts from Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks which hits the newsstands September 4th. In this issue you will find lots of wonderful ideas how to use those blocks featured in past issues of 100 Blocks.
If you have been following along through Quiltmaker’s 100 Block series, you may have seen my “Buckle Up” block in Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 4.
I had such fun making this block, playing with all kinds of fabric combinations for the baskets and flowers. Did you notice my use of the yellow gingham for the baskets sash? That’s because every Gingham Girl creation needs to have a bit of gingham in it!
Starting with the original block, I expanded the block into a runner using vines flowing from the basket and added flowers along this new vine. To frame my runner I added a border repeating the belt and buckle from the original block.
Visit the Gingham Girls website and see our complete line of patterns, kits and fabrics. As a bonus, we made up a few kits so you can make your own All Buckled Up runner.

We had a wonderful response to our new quilt designs at this year’s spring Quilt Market held in Kansas City, MO, May 18-20th. The most popular word used at market to describe our quilts was “fresh”. Love that!
Here are some pictures of our booth.
So how would you describe our new quilt designs?
