Snowy Peppermint Runner

Just before Christmas I was browsing on the quilter blogs website and ran across a very cute red and white striped table runner called Snowy Peppermint Runner.

It was designed by Jodi of Pleasant Home. I just loved the fresh look of the true reds and bright whites of her fabrics. Plus, the ends of the runner had such cute prairie points. I do remember learning to make prairie points back in my college days, but I had never before actually used them in any quilt. I love them a lot. I just never happened to use them in any design. Now I had the perfect excuse to fold some little squares into the cool looking embellishments!

This was so easy to make, that I'm sure I'll do more later for gifts. I got so excited about it once I had sewn the edge and turned it right side out, that I put it onto the table right away.

I do need to go back in for some simple machine quilting, but I just couldn't resist setting it up on my kitchen table!
