One charm pack...three ways!

After a lovely day of stitching, cuppa-ing and eating, I can finally show you what Linda, Tracey and I created with our 12 Days of Christmas charm square pack! We all started with the same charm squares and the same pattern (from the book Gift by Rosalie Quinlan), but the results were quite different.

This is Linda's tablerunner...

The green background came up beautifully. She hand quilted the pinwheels, and stipple quilted the background by machine...stunning!

Tracey went with a cream background...

...and I took this photo when she was almost finished sewing the binding on :) This is Tracey's first attempt at quilting...what a fantastic result! She hand quilted around the pinwheels, and it produced such a gorgeous puffiness...just divine!

As you already know, I machine quilted mine....

...and my background is white :) I also added red buttons to the pinwheel centres.


Here is the completed tablerunner...woohoooooo!



And a little close-up of the details.
Stitching this project together was such a great experience that we've decided to make it a more regular thing...creating is more fun when you do it with friends :)
