My Sew and fold on a roll (triangles on a roll) has been sitting here waiting for me to PLAY with it! (Thank you Nedra!)So Christmas day I sat down to play wither scraps from my Christmas quilt,
(Which is also finished as a top! See above! I will quilt it this week at my house.)
I thought at first I'd get the roll papers out, to pieces a big pretty border, then decided to hold that thought, and just play with the template. I cut all my shapes, then just started sewing them together, deciding I needed a new table runner….
I quickly pieced that together, and new I wanted it done. It was a fun fast project, and different from anything else I have been working on! I grabbed some batting, and backing...
Stitched in the ditch on my JUKI very quickly, Using one of the threads from Aurifil 50 wt set, of course!
My threads are now available in my SHOP! So if Santa didn't put one under your tree, you know where to find some! ;-)
Then, I grabbed my light green from my 12 Wt set, ran it through my JUKI top thread. I do not change my needle, But I do loosen the top tension and sew with a 3.5 stitch length. I quilt it very easily this way, and I get such a nice effect with the heavier weight thread.
See? Isn't that sweet? I then grabbed the Gorgeous Aurifil red in my set, to do the same inside the red diamonds. Shows up so nice, on my Pink Havels mat!
I machine bound the runner afterwards, and already have it on my table… The earlier Christmas table cloth I had made, went into the wash after a very, yummy, Christmas dinner!
We had a nice low key Christmas day. Relaxing, a walk in Central Park, and some good food…
I hope yours was as lovely!
