Progress and Parcels
At last I've been getting on with quilting my Stars table runner which I designed in EQ7. Here's a close up to show the free motion quilting in the border:
We've had snow all week and yesterday it really came down fast. I'd been out the previous day and cleared about 6 inches off my car but by lunchtime it was well covered again!
The van bringing my parcel from Amazon with Christmas presents for the family didn't make it through yesterday but arrived today. Soon after that the postman arrived with not one but three little packages for me! I'd ordered some fabric from The Bramble Patch to make another table runner using the Mrs Moen pattern I won last week and also some yo-yo makers from Creative Grids for another project.
The third package came all the way from the USA. It was my copy of theQuiltmakers 100 Blocks magazine I won in 'The Quilted Fish giveaway - hooray!!
Here it is with my new Christmas fabric which is from the Moda 'Twelve Days of Christmas' range. Thank you Amanda for the magazine - I'm thrilled with it and just love your cupcake block! Amanda designs some fabulous quilts and you can see her patterns here. Well these goodies should keep me busy for the next few days! Happy sewing!
