My Christmas 2021 sewing

Around the end of October 2021, my niece asked me to make a Christmas table runner for her new dining table.  That just inspired me to make 5 quilted table runners.  2 everyday ones and 3 Christmas.  I also made a set of pillowcases, a cushion, 2 placemats and a potholder.  I was on a roll!  I also made myself a quilted Christmas tree skirt and a jelly roll rug for my daughter for a Christmas gift.  Oh, and also, I participated in the #Quiltmasspectaular block-along (12 blocks in 12 days) so now I have a head start on a Christmas quilt for 2022.  You can see the blocks here.  I used Alison Glass Christmas fabrics for those.  

made from leftover strips from a Christmas quilt I made a few years ago.  Flip and sew onto batting

I used a charm pack of Cotton and Steel Holiday Classics to make this runner.

For this runner, I used leftover blocks and strips from the tree skirt that I made for my niece a few years ago.  free motion quilted

I made my niece four placemats from this fabric a couple of years ago so I used up the leftovers to make this set.

I saw this design online and just loved it.

My Christmas tree skirt.  I used a 10 degree wedge ruler to cut the pieced strips of Alison Glass fabrics.  I quilted in free motion,  40" diameter.

Hope you are getting lots accomplished lately.  It's a good feeling. Take care 💖


  1. Your Christmas sewing all looks great, but I LOVE the tree skirt and the way you quilted it.

  2. You certainly HAVE been on a roll! It’s hard to choose a favorite, but I admit my eye lingered over your Christmas skirt! We are so fortunate to have family that embraces our craft!


Thanks for stopping by. I love to hear from you and I really appreciate that you have taken the time to leave a comment.
