So I thought I had a bit more time to make this last Christmas gift. But apparently days have been slipping by without me noticing. Or paying close attention.
It suddenly dawned on me that I needed to have a gift made for my sister for our little Christmas get together. Which is tonight. Fortunately I remembered this yesterday and got busy sewing.
So a fairly quick project but so fun and I love how it turned out.
I used some of a Simply Color charm pack (I think I need more – it’s so pretty) and paired it with dark grey homespun.
The pattern is Ornate by The Sometimes Crafter. This is the second one I’ve done. The first one I made with Echino and linen.
It’s a great pattern – and a nice way to play with curves without too much risk! I actually found these curves fairly easy to sew (hence revisiting the pattern for a second time!).
This time however, I made sure not to use any directional prints. That made it a lot easier!
Rather simple quilting (for a change, I know!) just to echo the curves and the diamond shape.
I added hanging pockets on the back so it can be a wallhanging, or it can just be laid flat as table runner thingamajig.
Rather pleased with how it turned out with such a short amount of time to sew. I really need to keep track of the days better. Holidays seem to do that – make all the days fly by. Which is also my excuse for two blog posts in one day. But now I’m caught up with my Hustle post done and something for TGIFF Friday. Whew!
