Christmas Spiral Runners
I finally found the photos I was looking for earlier!
Back in early December, I had spent a day or two whipping up some of these spiral table centerpieces for gifts. They were a follow-up of some I made last winter, on a previous blog post. I didn't get around to quilting these babies till Christmas Eve, which is often the case, because I didn't have any "plan B" gifts ready! (Note to self: try harder to get gifts made earlier next year!)
I quilted them all together as shown in the photo, with the same panto, called Holly Berries from Lorien Quilting. I finished them with a narrow binding, alittle tricky around the 45-degree corners, but not too bad.
I really like the highly-contrasted ones better, they were really effective. Although the pink/green ones had "matching" fabrics, they weren't as exciting, maybe because the green had a print on it. Of course, having them side-by-side didn't help!
