Christmas Presents


So I finally received an update of sorts to my computer and it seemed to 'rejig' blogger. Blogger is no longer having a meltdown each time I try to load a photo - hallelujah! Back to blogging and this post.......
 
I stumbled upon this fabric range through Cora's quilts via Sharon at Lilabelle Lane. Take a look at that quilt on Cora's header. Beautiful. Now, how could I not resist this dreamy fabric. 


My little man attends occasional care one morning a week and my daughter also attended the same place two years ago. The ladies are just such wonderful women I wanted to put a little effort into their gifts as this will be the last year we will see them.
 
So, I decided on a table runner for each (x 5 mind you!). 

 
This fabric line is called Winter's Lane by Kate and Birdie Paper Co. And to co-exist with this stunning fabric I have decided to incorporate three stitcheries by Natalie Bird from her 'Tis the Season book.
 

ok blogger - have it your way. I can't be bothered trying to rotate you again
 
I finished off the binding on this quilt last night for a friend. She began this quilt for her son before he was born. He turns 16 in January. Better late than never though I say. The top was already pieced and I just had to baste it with some plain red fabric she provided, quilt it and bind it. I really like the binding as there are no other stripes in the mix.




 
Well now, back to those stitcheries.
 
Happy Stitching all
 
Susie
