It's December 17, so it's time to start some Christmas presents! I did start a Christmas present this weekend, but in an effort to not drive myself crazy, I think this will be a gift for Christmas 2013. I bought this pattern at Primitive Gathering's Christmas Open House, and have been chomping at the bit to start it.
Here's a closeup of one end. Don't look too closely - miniature piecing isn't completely my thing,
but I gave it a shot! The little corner connectors were only 1 1/8"
square. The friend this is intended for isn't a quilter, so I don't
think she'll be too critical of the piecing. I'm ready now to give the
snowmen some blanket stitching and faces and arms. This whole runner is only 12 1/2" wide, so it should be easy to machine quilt. The ends of the runner are cut off at an angle after the stitching- you can probably see my chalk lines for that.
So that's what's on my design wall. With Christmas coming up so fast, I don't think my design wall will be seeing much action for a couple weeks. Hopefully, I can show this as a finished product before too long!
