As previously posted, my table runner, “Sparkling Pines,” is published in the magazine. Contact Loving Stitches quilt shop here in Fayetteville for a table runner kit.

Perhaps you have enough Christmas table runners, and what you really need is a wall quilt. Take a look at Cheryl’s modifications of the design.

On a recent quilt guild retreat, Cheryl sewed the tops of two table runners. (Yes, they are that quick and easy to assemble!)

Then she had the idea to downsize the design, turning the runner into a wall quilt by making just one tree with the star. (Clever!) I love the border print with cardinals! She sent this one to her daughter who is stationed in Germany.

Another “Sparkling Pine” hangs in Cheryl’s kitchen. She opted not to add the white background strips on either side of the tree, making a narrower quilt.

Thanks for sharing pictures of your quilts, Cheryl!

Your pattern is so versatile. I do like the bright colors you used in the original runner. I love bright colors in December as it nullifies the darkness of the shorter sunlight days.
