Christmas in March... FUFO's

I've been working hard on UFO's and a couple of weeks ago I finished several table runners/toppers. The fabrics have been sitting in the closet for a few years - can't remember when I bought them, perhaps 3-4 years ago - time to attack them with the cutter! At the end of last year I got totally carried away with those cute snowmen and even if I had in mind to finish them before Christmas, I couldn't... Because I didn't have suitable backing. Most of the Debbie Mumm fabrics I have bought from Mumm Quilters and I was lucky to get backing from the same fabric line; Santa Goes to North Pole and Arctic Holiday.
Here's my FUFO's (Finished UFO's) :)
Table runner #1
I've used DMC embroidery floss 1 strand to highlight Santa and the Polar bears.

Table runner #2

Table runner #3

Table topper #4

Mini Wall quilt.
I have used DMC embroidery floss 1 strand to highlight Santa and the Polar bear.

It feels wonderful to have finally finished those projects.
I still have 6 table mats and 1 table topper to finish - waiting for fabric, which I should get this week.

Great FUFO's! They are quite adorable and I think I would have been tempted by them myself. Congratulations!

Very nice runners! Do you use them all, sell them, or gifts? Great ideas! ♥♥♥

Beautiful! I love the colors. Do you just start cutting and putting things together, or do you have a master plan? Whichever, your projects always turn out so nice. Sometimes when I have scraps I am using, I just start cutting and sewing, and am surprised to see what I end up with.

These are looking great - and of course our favourite fabric is in there, too! Lovely work.
