Christmas Sewing

Now that various little gifts have been distributed I can post some pictures here.

These little quilted mats could be table centres, place mats, pot-stands, mug-rugs, or whatever else you can think of. I made them from a pattern found here after seeing the very pretty one Marly made.
They look much nicer NOT in Christmas fabrics, I think. But anyway, that's what time of year it is. These are what I was trying to quilt when my walking foot decided to stop working.

I played with different arrangements of the fabrics, but the ones below possibly weren't the best I could have come up with:
Rather less star, and more Indian good-luck symbol which we generally try to avoid due to unpleasant associations... Oops!

I also made a few aprons from panels. Here's one recipient modelling hers:
Sorry it's a bit out of focus, but I was laughing so much as she strutted her stuff, that I didn't get a good shot!


  1. Very festive gifts! Love the apron and it looks like a good time was had by all!

  2. You have been busy sewing! Lovely apron; I'd been wondering what you could do with a panel, other than hanging it on the wall, that is. I like the mug rugs, especially the bottom left one in the first photo.
