Okay, I did it! Pressed it, backed it, quilted it, and did the binding. It's done and ready for the table.
I used a large button for the bell. The jury is still out on that one, but for now, it stays.
And while we are speaking of tablerunners, this one is coming along as well.
Can anyone offer a suggestion about a backing? This was a kit, so there is no more red fabric (my first choice) and I really don't care for the fabric that was in the kit (although I could use it for another project). This fabric was so stretchy and the HST were not playing nice.
Also pop over to Abbey Lane Quilts blog. They have three delightful tablerunners up on their blog. Easy peasy patterns. Oh and they are having a giveaway too :-)
I am linking up with SewCalGal's Virtual Christmas Quilt Show! Stop by and see all the lovely Christmas quilts on display.
