Christmas QAL September Part 1

It's Christmas QAL this weekend. Hazel is hosting this month over at Hazel's Quilts. Why not pop over and see what everyone is doing.

I decided to try and get this UFO finished. I really like the colours in the snowflake batik fabric. The design  is my own. I've just got the quilting and binding to do. That is my job first thing tomorrow.


I apologise for the picture quality.
 I seem to have misplaced my camera and had to use the one on my phone.


I have also cut out fabrics for a Mug Bag. It's a free tutorial by Bronwyn Hayes at Red Brolly. That will be going in my gift box.

This is how it should look when it's finished.
See you tomorrow for my next instalment.

  6. Nice table runner! I think it is fabulous that you made your own design. I began a Christmas tree table runner myself today, but it is someone else's pattern.
