Wow, hello everyone! I haven’t posted for some time, but this doesn’t mean I have stopped with patchwork or quilting. I have fully enjoyed my August holidays that I divided between 2 weeks in Prague and 2 weeks at home. I went back to work in September, both in the office and teaching patchwork and quilting. September was filled with visitors that came to see us after the hot months of July and August. With October nearly over I am slowly getting back to my normal routine.
Never the less I have worked in the meantime on a few small Christmas projects :
table runner size : 60″ x 18″; free motion quilted with meander pattern using Gutermann Sulky
A lady from my quilting classes send me a photo of a table runner with this design that she liked on Pinterest. As there was no pattern on the web, I started cutting fabrics and piecing until I got all the measurements right. It is a straight forward design, a table runner that you can make in an afternoon.
place mat size : 12″ x 18″; quilted with walking foot following the tree shapes with Gutermann Sulky
I found this pattern for place mats and a matching table runner in a quilting magazine, but can’t remember which one it was. It is quick and easy design with appliqué.
mini quilt version #II
mini quilt size : 23″ x 24″; free motion quilted with meander pattern using Gutermann Sulky
Below is a photo of version #I of the mini quilt. But I wasn’t satisfied with the design, I thought that the Christmas tree glass ornaments and the present boxes turned out too bulky. So I refined the design – see the photo above with version #II.

Some older Christmas mini quilts that I made over the years and shall donate all of them for charities in our area.
Thanks for stopping, feel free to leave a comment, enjoy the rest of the weekend,
