I didn’t think I would get to do a Christmas in July post this year, but the mail man was nice to me yesterday. So I am able to do it after all. I unexpectedly received a package from Quilter’s World, and in it are my Christmas runner and copies of the magazine’s special interest publication “A Quilted Christmas”!
This runner was made last year, and honestly I hadn’t thought of it in a long while. Seeing it again reminds me of the hot summer afternoon (much like today) we had last year while I was working on this project.
This is how I had quilted stenciled motif s on the runner. I “sewed” on the traced design using an unthreaded needle on a vellum sheet of paper one can easily purchase from the craft stores. I then positioned and pinned the paper onto the quilting area. With thread this time, I followed the design perforated on the paper. Easy peasy.
Are you thinking about Christmas yet? Oh, don’t tell me – I will feel guilty. :) Christmas to me is a looooooooooooooooooong way from now. Nonetheless, I would spend sometime this week browsing through “A Quilted Christmas” to see if there are any fun gifts to make.
Have a great weekend, dear Friends!
