Around this time of the year with the cool air and the coziness of the long evenings, I find myself browsing through Christmas quilt books and magazines.
Sometimes just the pictures in my head materialize into a project, as is the case with this table runner.
Machine appliquéd poinsettias
Another simple one, machine embroidered
This wall hanging of the Nativity I made for a silent auction at a fund raiser
for my late Brother-in-law's Foundation
Gilles Boudreau and Friends Cancer Help Fund.
The guild had the privilege of having
Suzanne from It's Sew Time come do a workshop on Saturday. What a fun day we all had. The project was
a Cathedral Window Table runner
And she brought
all kinds of gorgeous fabric from her shop for us to choose. "Shopping at home; does not get better than this"
Suzanne had a wonderful assistant, Christine to teach the class
Here she is passing on her instructions to my sister, Simone.
And here is
my finished version of the Cathedral Window table runner !
I love the star aroundthe Cathedral Window.
Next week-end is off to Amherst for the Fibre Arts Festival and the Karen Neary workshop on "Free Motion Feathers Workshop". My friend, Elaine and Sister Simone enjoy the time spent together at this event and this year there is an added bonus with the new quilt shop in town Mrs Pugsley's Emporium .
Beth, the owner has a "Show and Tell" planned for Friday evening. What a way to get the quilters together!
