I admit I came late to precuts but now I actually adore them! And Christmas precuts are my absolute favourite. They plop through the door in happy little padded envelopes and it’s so exciting to open them and look through all those sweet prints. This year, I decided on Moda’s ‘Jol’ charm pack by Northern quilts for a festive project.
Those little reindeer!! And the hearts!
I made this Seasonal Snippets table runner in an afternoon. The design uses one pack of 5″ squares. It features three central blocks to showcase the gorgeous prints, a wide mitred border and a scrappy binding. The best thing is, it is super quick to sew, economical to make and so versatile.
By choosing a different charm pack, you can completely alter the style of your table runner.
I loved the prints in Moda’s ‘Mon Ami’ charm pack. Who could resist fabric with an actual cat on an actual bike! As I wanted this to be summery décor, I added a butterfly fluttering off the corner of the quilt. Of course the full-size template and all the instructions for the butterfly are included in the Seasonal Snippets table runner pattern.
The finished runners are great for gifts, especially if you have a loved one with a particular interest. I’m currently looking at all the coffee inspired fabric collections for Himself! Seriously, he drinks bowlfuls of the stuff!
Precuts have been such a revelation to me but so far I have only sewn with charm packs. Which are your favourite precuts? And do you use them often? I would love to hear your thoughts below!
You can get your copy of the Seasonal Snippets now in my shop.
