Quilting, Quilting.....

I have been sewing and quilting the last couple of days, because the weather has been cold. We don't have lots of snow but we have cold weather. A couple of Christmas's ago, I received a Christmas block in a Santa swap that I did..... I added some corner triangles and made the block into a pillow..... The block itself is completely handsewn and is lovely.

I also finished a Christmas present for a friend. It is not in Christmas colors, but I have had the fabric for about two years and wanted to make up the table runner. The fabric is actually redder that it is in the photo, and I am sure she will like it. I am busy getting cleaned up with lots of little things, sending out swaps, organizing little Christmasy type presents.

You are so right...the pillow is so lovely. I like the table runner. My club has recently done some french braid quilts and I have been thinking of doing a table runner in the technique. Yours turned out really nice.

I really like your pillow. It is very rich. And I'm sure your friend will love the beautiful table runner.

Debbie, as usual lovely creations by you. I love the color combinations of that runner. Lovely.

The pillow and table runner you made are beautiful. We would call your pillow a cushion and what we sleep on in bed a pillow!
I hope you are keeping warm with all your stitching.
Have a lovely weekend.

As usual, lovely work Deb! your work is so pretty- I haven't done much for Christmas this year. My GD and I are going to decorate pine cones on Monday when she comes over. I love
visiting your blog.

I think the cushion is so pretty and especially like the table runner. Good job, as usual. Shirley
