This just about says it all. We were still deep into wallpaper removal and painting of our living room right up till Christmas. I hope everyone is enjoying the holidays. It's been hectic - we've also finished celebrating some family birthdays - but now that Santa's closed up her workshop for the year, I plan on enjoying this next week off with the kids.
My family does a secret Santa gift exchange and I made my SIL a tablerunner, napkins and a pot holder using French General Maison de Garance fabric. After searching the internet and my stash of quilting magazines for a pattern, I decided I went with something very simple to feature the center floral print.
The binding is cut on the bias, and there is a slight ripple at the edges because I cut the fabric lenthwise, but otherwise, I think it came out quite nicely. Blue woven is on the back.
At the last minute (of an already last minute project) I decided to whip up a pot holder. The Lemoyne Star block pattern is very fiddly (set in seams) but some free motion quilting minimized the flaws.
Here's wishing all my readers a happy and wonderful holiday season!
