This project was started at last month’s Mini Retreat and I have finished it in time for this month’s club meeting.
We did a strip exchange of a pair of 2 1/2 inch strips of fabric (wof) so there would be a variety to choose from. The white fabric was what I brought to share. While it is not a typical Christmas fabric, I thought the lighter value would add a pop to the darker shades you tend to think with Christmas.
While it was a table runner and certainly easily handled on a domestic machine, I used this as an opportunity to practice my FMQ skills on the long arm. I also used a metallic thread (YLI) so see how my machine would handle that as well. It ran like a charm. The swirls seemed fitting with the border fabric.
A head start on Christmas 2014 or too late for 2013? I’ll go with a head start? What about you?
