SPICING UP CHRISTMAS

I took a class at the end of September and made a runner called Spicy Spiral. (Note the Featured Post)  I really love this pattern and just this past weekend decided to buy some Christmas fabric and try it out again.  A 25% sale on Christmas fabric certainly helped me make up mind to go with it.  
I selected the order of my fabric.  This cheat sheet really helps.
The first of my four strata panels.
Here we are.  All spray basted and quilted.  Now only to bind it.  
Last a nice long pile of bias binding.  I bought just 1/4 yard of each of my fabrics.  I had just enough left over so I am going to try making a smaller one.  The normal size is 42 long and by the wide area 25 inches.  I am winging  it by working backwards on the wedge cutting.  I have no idea what size I will end up with.  I am going to be sure to make notes on this idea.  We shall see how that goes.  This one at least is almost a finish.  I have sewn the binding on and just working on the handwork.

  1. I made a bunch of these table runners for the Fourth of July and loved making them! Yours is so pretty in Christmas fabrics. I look forward to seeing your smaller versions.
