Remember this fabric from an earlier blogpost?? I bought this from Quilters Haven, and I was going to use it to make some Christmas tablerunners and placemats. Well, so far, I've turned it into this table runner - yet another AnnAKa pattern, called "Kle kjokkenet i 60-tansdrakt" - it was in an old edition of Quiltemagasinet from a couple of years ago. I have quilted this runner with gold metallic thread...
...I've made a few of these table runners for Christmas presents for friends..... this red one was quilted very simply, and I used a green, red and gold stripey fabric for the binding and this green runner was bound with the same stripey fabric as the previous one - and used it to border the centre squares...
..and I've used the same pattern "Kle kjokkenet i 60-tansdrakt" to make this cushion cover for my sister-in-law. Phew!! All this sewing malarky is exhausting -just spent two hours tidying up my "creative outbursts" (Mr F would call it that bl**dy mess!!), putting all fabric and threads and sewing machine away until the New Year.
