Matched Set Complete -- Blogland Houses

I showed the longer table runner using the blogland houses I received in a giveaway from Beth at Love Laugh Quilt and now I've finished the little coordinating one. The larger is for my table, the smaller is for a little chest that we use as a mini sideboard.
I used the same fabrics to finish off both, except for the binding, simply because I didn't have enough left.

I quilted it with wavy lines. I used the regular foot on my machine, I have yet to try the free motion foot I bought.
Thanks so much to the ladies who made the house blocks. I love my cheerful table runners. I posted about who made each block here.

On the fabric front, anyone who has been stopping by the blog for a while knows I love Halloween. (I made 4 Halloween quilts last year). Well, I had to buy these Alexander Henry fabrics, Witches in Stitches.

And I finally bought some fabulous Ghastlies!

And Shelley of Red Quilts, who I shall refer to as my Fabric Fairy Godmother from now on, sent me the fabric above. The hilarious 'Muffinator' for the kids and that Sandi Henderson Henna Garden for me. Aren't blogland buddies the best?!
Happy Weekend. I think there will be some quilting going on at my house as a ridiculous 20-30 cms of snow (30 cms is 12 inches) is forecast for our area tonight and into tomorrow.
And I'm linking up with Sew and Tell Fridays!

Your house runners are adorable! :) I participated in that block swap and it's so fun seeing how someone put some of the houses together. :)

Love the personality in your table runner village! Looks like a friendly place always ready to party... kind of like I imagine your house would be! :-)

Really think that Ghastlies fabric is awesome!!!! Can't wait to see what you create from it!

Your house blocks look awesome. I won some too. I was thinking a wall quilt but I love your table runner idea. Also i have a feeling I would get it finished sooner.
