Merry Christmas from the Little Penguin house!
I finished up my December Table Scraps project just in time to decorate our table for Christmas dinner.
I wanted to try the braided style of runner after finding this tutorial at Samelia's Mum, and I had a lot of fun cutting and rearranging the 2.5 inch strips to alternate prints and lights and darks. My only disappointment was that I couldn't make this longer (it measures about 12 x 26) because I actually ran out of scraps! Can you believe that?
The strips with red trees are even pieced together
to make a strip that was long enough!
The backing is made out of a few wider strips of this peppermint candy print that I've been trying to use up forever! Same with the red and white striped binding.
I had to laugh when I was working on the hand quilting of my Scrappy Trip Around the Rainbow quilt last night. Look what block I was on!
Speaking of this quilt, I'm pushing really hard to have a 2021 Rainbow Scrap Challenge project finished in 2021. Think I can do it?
The top right to bottom left lines of quilting are just about done.
Now to add the rest of the top left to bottom right quilting.
