It’s a Reindeer Holiday Season…….

 

I’ts the holiday season and I will be using my Reindeer Table Runner for the celebrations.  I have loved making this runner  for the Ho Ho Ho And On We Sew sponsored by  Fiona @ Celtic Thistle Stitches and Paula @ Mud, Pies and Pins . If you have made a fun project for the festive season link up your project for the chance to win two great giveaway prizes: a copy of Katy Jones’s “25 Patchwork Quilts” book sponsored by Fiona at Celtic Thistle Stitches and a AU$30 voucher to spend at Amitie Textiles courtesy of  Quilts with Personality. Check it out here

Christmas Runner 1

 

The Runner measure 16″ x 42″.  I used raw edge applique to adhere the  reindeers, trees etc.  I chose raw edge applique to keep the runner flat so I could sit dishes on it easily.   I hand quilted the runner using  perle 8 cotton with vertical and horizontal wavy lines.  The quilting definitely gives the illusion that snow is falling and the spotty fabrics certainly add to this.   It was a lot of fun designing and  writing the tutorial and it certainly pushed my design skills

Following are some close up pics of the runner.

 

Close Up Reindeer

I love the Kaffe Fassett reindeer fabric.  It just looks like the reindeers are in a snow storm!   The tree fabric was fabulous,  I just had to cut around the outline of the material and let the fabric do the work.  It gives such a 3D effect.

 

Close Up House

I absolutely love the house.  It reminds me of a Swiss Chalet or a true Ginger Bread House.  The use of the polka dots on the house and the stripes enhance snow effect and the stripes almost create a step at the front door.  The front door is a real favorite – a  Liberty Lifestyle print.
