No, it's not snowing outside yet, but It's Snowing! by Debs Strain for Moda is the fabric range that I have used for this tablerunner. Do you remember that I completed the pieced border as last months FNSI? This pattern is called "Festive Season" and is designed by Annie Downes, whose website is "Hatched and Patched".....
.....well I had a free morning today (due to having a very poorly car) so what better way to spend it than sewing? I used a white Mettler quilting thread and quilted it using the "stitch-in-the-ditch" method.....
.....I used a piece of cotton wadding for this runner, and spray basted the layers together with 505 spray before the I quilted it. I love these fun and funky fabrics, and even though they are not what you would call "traditional" Christmas colours, they look great.....
.....and this stripey fabric is fantastic for the binding. I added one of my labels, and then hand stitched the binding into place. I chose some Christmas themed fabric from my stash for the backing, called "Winterscapes" for Benartex.....
.....this runner is part of a Secret Santa swap that I am taking part in, and no, I'm not revealing who the lucky person is yet - all will be revealed nearer time! Now I need to get busy and finish the rest of my sewing as this swap needs a few little extras to be added before it gets posted off to the lucky swapee.
