I wanted to show you what I have been making for various Christmas gifts. Firstly a swap with my local quilt group. The brief if we wanted to participate was to make a table runner.
Unfortunately the photos don’t show the lovely gold on the fabric. I stitched around some of the shapes using gold thread and I was happy to put my name to it on the label!!
Next was a bag made for a friend in a secret swap. This bag is a great bag, as it has a square base, and is good for putting by the couch with your knitting or whatever in.
I have made about 4 of these bags. Sometimes you find a pattern that just really works! Photo below shows the bottom of the bag.
Next is a bag for my sister.
This is a pattern by Wendy Williams and I have made 3 of these! I practised some straight line quilting as you go that I learned from a Craftsy site.
And lastly another table runner for my friend Carole! This table runner also had lots of gold on the fabric, but the photos I took with my phone don’t really do the fabric justice.
I hope every-one who takes the time to look at my blog has a wonderful and safe Christmas, and a very happy and healthy 2015. Thank you for all your comments!
Lots of hugs
