I'm making simple things in preparation for Christmas, I really want the house to feel super festive this year!
I had these lovely charms from CeLynn at The Sunflower Patch and this great Christmas fabric from Lisa at The Quilt Jam, which I won in giveaways a while ago, thank you both again for your generosity! I used a few bits of stash fabric and some red solids to make it big enough to cover the table.
The tablecloth was finished the same way as my Tetris picnic blanket. I used some very thin white (possibly lining) fabric that my mum gave me for the backing (I think this is the third time I've used some backing fabric from my mum! She's a goldmine!! Thanks mum).
I sewed the backing and patchwork top right sides together, leaving a gap for turning, turned it through, pressed the edges and then top stitched around each side.
I've packed it away now but, along with my Vintage Holiday tree skirt, this is going to make such a difference and I'm looking forward to December!
This is one crossed of my list for the Finish-A-Long over at Quilter in the Gap!
