2nd and 3rd Flower Done

My R & B art quilt is almost done.   It has 9 buttons to be sewn on, and then maybe more on the binding.    But the good news is I finished all three of my 3D flowers.  The second and third ones were all done and just had to be sewn on.   When I laid them out, I didn't like the look, so back to the sketch pad.  I made 2 more just like the first one and I like the flow much better.  

As you may remember, this quilt was supposed to be done for December 1st, and another one finished by January 1st.   There is a chance I will tackle that second one with great guns over the holidays.   But I also have a few deadlines that I have to meet.   We shall see, I may just buy a pound of chocolate covered coffee beans and go crazy=)

I probably won't post now till after Christmas, so I would like to take this opportunity to wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.  You have no idea how much I appreciate you signing up to follow.   So very much!   Thank you.

Art Quilt Embellishing

I think time goes on double speed as soon as December approaches.   My art quilt that has to get done very soon, has had little attention to it.
I did get one of the 3D flowers done, and  even attached.  I love it.  It was my first time combining two techniques in the flower and I am pleased with the effect.

You can see by some of the pictures that it is quite three dimensional.

Here is my question to you?  Do you have any quilted items still left to finish up before Christmas Day?

I think we may sneak in one more giveaway before Christmas.   I will be back next week to show you the progress of my art quilt.  For now, here are some stockings I hand dyed with Kool Aid.  They are made out of Pellon batting.  As soon as they post the tutorial on their website, I will let you know.

A Quick Table Runner

A friend mentioned she really wanted a Christmas table runner.  I have a policy that I don't make Christmas gifts in November or December.   It is too rushed and those months just get too crazy.  

I broke my rule.   She sent me the measurements of her table.   The runner was to be 84" in length!   That is not just a table runner, that is a table that ran off!  

I found a fabulous idea and tips from my friend Linda on her blog and drafted up a pattern and set to work.  It is all HST's.
