At this time of year I always like to have a "Christmas" themed runner on my table. This one is the very first runner that I made with a Norwegian pattern, and started my love of Norwegian patterns! It is called "Adventsløper" and this pattern was featured in the Norwegian quilting magazine Quiltemagasinet issue 4/2008 and was designed by AnnAKa. The original runner was made in purple fabrics for Advent, however I used red and gold fabrics from my stash for a more festive theme. This runner is quilted very simply using the "stitch-in-the-ditch" method with a gold Madeira metallic thread - and a machine blanket stitch around the appliqued hearts. This is a great pattern for using up scraps of fabrics with the same colour-theme for the blocks - and I've made a start on another one using some cream and gold fabrics, but goodness only knows if I'll have time to complete it in time for Christmas 2013!!
