You may remember that Linda, Tracey and I (and a number of you lovely readers, too) embarked on a journey at the beginning of this year to create a Christmas project each month?
My January went well with some cute little ornaments, and then I moved on to a Christmas Tree Skirt for February. Well, let me tell you, the Christmas Tree Skirt took a tad (no, actually a LOT) longer than I was anticipating :)
The girls and I got together last Saturday to work on our March project, a Christmas tablerunner. Linda's is coming along beautifully, and she has not one, but several, in production! GO LINDA!
Tracey decided to make a little square tablerunner, and cut hers out on the day using some Kate Spain fabrics...very very pretty! I see on Instagram today that she is currently stitching down the binding...GO TRACEY!
And me? Well, despite having all my fabrics, pattern etc sorted for my tablerunner, I decided to plod along on my Christmas Tree Skirt...which has now become a Christmas Tree Mat :)
After completing all my house stitcheries, I had decided to make these little corner triangles from the script fabric, and then proceeded to cut it all out ...with the writing going in all the wrong directions! ! Don't you just hate that? So I reached into my stash and luckily found some green to replace it...phew!
I didn't have enough words for every single scallop, but liked the idea of doubling up at the corners and then placing them in every second scallop along the edges.
It's taken me most of the long weekend and a whole lot of Easter eggs, but I put the final quilting stitches into it this afternoon, and TA DAH...
...it's finished! I'm really very pleased with how it all came together in the end, and can't wait to pop my Christmas tree on top of it on December 1st :)
Now...onto my Christmas tablerunner :)
