Making Christmas Week 6

I have a finish off my Christmas list.  As I prep for my quilting weekend I have been wanting to finish things up instead of packing them or moving them around.  So I made a quilted table runner for a gift for my Son #1 to give to his girlfriends family.  I bought this fabric awhile ago with them in mind so it was just sitting down and getting it done. The rest of the fabric came out of my stash.

 I know this is easy but I am a pattern person so this came from a pattern from LQS a couple of years ago.  I love how you can use a focal fabric.  This fabric is perfect for them.  I am sure they will love it.  My Son was thrilled I offered too.  I quilted just lines with a red Aurfil.
So happy I have made some progress on my list. I have made more progress this past weekend and just need to get some photos to update where I am at.  I have a few tops now to get basted and quilted!

Updated List
1.  5 Thread catchers- pin cushion thingys.  (that is the technical term) November 13th -DONE!                  2.  Apron- chocolate theme - gift for my friend that we make chocolates together each year- no progress.
3.  3 sets of pot holders, towels and now coasters - gifts for co-workers. 2 out of three towels done, coasters done and pot holders 1 done and 2 to go.  
4.  Knitted cowl - bought the yarn last year and want to wear this now!  (I haven't started) bought the circular needles.  Need a little help on the pattern.
5.  Paper pieced pillow for SIL Xmas gift - No progress
6.  Xmas Table runner - gift for my son to give - DONE!

  1. Your table runner is lovely. I especially like how you have quilted it with red straight line - it really adds to the visual!!! So pretty!!!
