I've been busy sewing over the last weeks. These days I'm into table toppers, table mats and table runners. After making big quilts over the past few years, it feels wonderful making smaller items.
I love Christmas fabrics, especially panels and stripes. I bought these 'Peppermint Cottage' by Diane Knott for Clothworks a couple of years ago - if not mistaken. Isn't it odd; we buy beautiful fabrics, intend to make something out of them, but find them too beautiful to cut or we don't know what to make... Does it sound familiar to you?! :) Well, in my case; I couldn't decide what to make! Honest! :)
I'm happy to say I have (finally) made some table toppers and table runners out of these fabrics and I think they turned out quite cute.
A small table mat - measuring 14 3/4 square.
Another table topper...
Love the cute house border
Perhaps a bit nontraditional Christmas colors, but why not?! :)
Table runner in navy blue, yellow and green.
Again I've ran out of quilting thread! More is on its way and I hope to finish another two table toppers in a two weeks time.
I'm happy to say I've used fabrics from my stash! All in all I think I've reduced my stash with approx 8 yards! Isn't that great?! :)
