A couple of Christmas gifts

Made these pillows for my sister – I’m thinking there are going to be loads of pillows in my future…

Red Pillow


And the table runner & place mats for my mother in law. They were incredibly tough for me to get through as the fabrics aren’t my taste, but if you saw her dark green &  red chicken themed kitchen you’d understand. It’s as though the fabric designer had been in her kitchen before coming up with this line.

Table Runner & Place mats

Anyhow – now I’m driven to finish the charity quilt and this baby quilt before the new year so that my numbers for 2008 quilts will be two higher!

And then… who knows?!? My quilting future for 2009 is wide open! How exciting!

    I love those pillows. I had made over ten (24 by 24) in log cabin style and turning twenty style. so easy except when I had to hand sew the edges after putting foam in.

    Lovely pillows. And the runner and placemats turned out wonderful as well.

    Equilter has a bit more Katie Jump Rope – even cheaper! Make sure that you have all that you need. LOL

    Everything turned out great! I love the pillows and have an aunt who would go crazy over the Rooster themed place mats and table runner. LOL
