Tiny bit of Christmas

As you all know by now the Christmas Quilt Show is in full swing, beautiful quilts and other things for you to see.  There is a list on SewCalGal's blog for all the entries in the show. Just click on the link and you are taken to their blog and their wonderful entries.
And so with out further ado....here is my Teenie, Tiny Little Entry.......

My Little Christmas Table Runner
Beautiful Christmas fabrics with a touch of gold
quilted areas are done with embroidery machine designs
and accented with fancy machine stitches

This little Table Runner along with a Cranberry scented candle
 will be heading to my Mother in Laws house for her Holiday Table Decor


The Back of the Table Runner


I wanted to enter a quilt or a wall hanging, but time just slipped away this year and before I knew it the show time was here and I didn't have anything to enter. So last night I whipped up this little Table Runner. I am so glad I have the embroidery machine as this runner is quilted with embroidery quilt designs and fancy machine stitching, super fast and easy.
 Darlene puts so much effort into her shows and I wanted to support her effort by having something entered.

I had gotten this wall hanging kit this past year at This and That Fabrics and I had hoped to enter it, but as you can see it never got done.


I have this wall hanging panel all ready to be quilted, but alas it too is not finished, but it might get done in time for Christmas.

Then there is the sad part, ALL these beautiful Christmas Fabrics that will once again will go into storage because I didn't get around to using them this year. Poor little kids.....

But I do have a genuine excuse on not getting my Christmas Projects done. I quilt for a charity group and I currently have just finished 4 tops which are now waiting for quilting, and I have another two that I am hoping gets finished in time for this years December Delivery.  I hope you enjoy my little entry in the Christmas Quilt Show. 
Enjoy the Show
and to visit all the other entries you can use the icon on my side bar or follow this link

UPDATE:  I have been to each and every site on the list, if you haven't take the time to visit these sites, well then you really need to just go and visit them.  There are some fabulous quilts, some pieced, some applique, some scrap, some whimsical,  some new quilters, some expert quilters, all sharing their work. These quilter's have all done a fantastic job. If you have a Christmas Quilt, take a picture and enter it in the show there is still time, join the fun and get a chance to win some great prizes.  Heck I am lusting over the FQ's SewCalGal and some others have donated to the prize list, oh and there are EQ software, tools, patterns, books the  list just goes on and on..
Hope to see ya there.

Mom in law is going to love this! It's very pretty. You sound like me with all those projects you are trying to finish! And don't worry about the Christmas fabric - there's always next year! Right?

You made a beautiful runner, and adding a candle with it as a gift is such a nice idea. It's nice that you put your charity quilting first. I bet they are beautiful, too.

Pretty runner.

Sounds like you need to make a christmas gift a month so you don't have to put all that lovely fabric back in a box :)

Karen said...

Cute table runner! Love the fabrics and embroidery!

It's a great runner and your mother in law will be thrilled with it I'm sure.

Really cute table runner. I am sure your mother-in-law is going to love it. Offline I want to chat with you on your "storage". Do you seriously have a special storage for your fabrics vs sewing room? I've been pondering about this, while I work to cleanup my sewing room to get new flooring.
