From here and there....

The beginnings of a Christmas table runner...

  
from my MCM Bee buddies!

A beautiful piece of fabric from Japan,


called a tenugui, from my son!

And a quilt top, blocks by Helen


and sashing by me!


And for the backing, a choice from the vintage sheet stash...


from a Melbourne op shop or two!

Happy sewing!

  2. Love the sampler quit, especially your choice for the sashing and cornerstones. I don't like using solids so the pindot fabric is perfect. I have to check out the Treehouse Sampler Quilt pattern. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Those sashed blocks look so good together and the red and white blocks look promising too. Your son has good taste in tenugui.

  10. Your Christmas runner is going to be a beauty! I love the Treehouse Sampler quilt. What fabric did you use for the sashing? It sets off the blocks so well.

  11. The Tenugui from Japan is beautiful. Is it a printed pattern or woven into the fabric?

  14. I don't know where you find the time... or the energy! So many great projects here. It's great that you're going to end up with a red and white quilt, and one with such a pretty block. Every quilter loves them.
