You could spend hours wandering the stores to find that last gift for the person you haven’t been able to buy for, or, you can sit down and get this project done. Appropriately called “Down to the Wire Christmas Runner,” I just finished it for my aunt. These colors will carry her past Christmas into the Wisconsin winter, but it will finish nicely in more traditional Christmas colors. To make it really fast, bind using “Suzy’s Magic Binding” technique. The piecing is very easy, no points to worry about. The big center is great for quilting, but don’t get carried away- Christmas is right around the corner. Happy Quilting!
