I DO know it's August.... lol......I do have to admit it was wierd working on Christmas fabric when it was 80 degrees out. I had a pkg. of Moda charm squares given to me at Christmas time. I was looking for a project that wasn't too time consuming, or too hard to manage. I pinned the 40 , 5" charm squares together, while watching t.v. one night. The next day, I sewed them together, 3 across.
When they were all sewn, I trimmed the top and bottom into points. I fused the squares down using June Tailor fusible backing. I had a piece of Christmas fabric left from another project that became the backing. The next time I had to sew, I free-motion quilted in a random pattern. I bound the runner with a red print. I like how it came out, simple, and kind of old-fashioned.
I have given table runners before at Christmas...paired with some nice taper candles, and a bottle of wine, it makes a great hostess gift. I will be glad when Christmas rolls around that I made this in August!
"Ladies of the Evening are headed to a quilt show tomorrow in Harwich Ma. Some of them went today...they wanted to buy all of the good stuff before the rest of us get there...you know who you are:))) So, stay tuned for some eye candy from the quilt show.
