Decorating for Christmas in the new house has been a fun and new experience for me and my daughter. It also has given me new opportunities to add some quilting into the mix.
Case in point. We have a credenza in our entryway. We needed a Christmas table runner. I pulled out one I started last year, but my daughter wrinkled up her nose and said "It doesn't look like Christmas!"
Here is the way it looked to start with.
Okay, DD was right. Nothing pizazzy about this.
So let's try to rework the fabric.
Cut the middle section out. And add something "Christmasy".
I even like the way the Free Motion Quilting added some swirlies to the runner.
Looks much better :-)
Now on to the tree skirt!
I hope you are having fun decorating for Christmas.
