This is supposed to be my next-to-last made gift, although you never can tell with me. My plan is to spend the rest of this week working on the Water Drop quilt top. Then I’ll have Christmas week to bake and wrap.
This is the end of the fabric I used last Christmas to make my sister’s giant table runner. It was an amazing purchase of 4 yards of darling holly pixie fabric, and I’ve managed to use every inch of it. I’ve never made a matching tablecloth and apron before, but I think it’s kind of fun for entertaining. The 38″ topper is backed with a vintage sheet, with just a little green holly design quilting to keep it together (the quilting shows up way better in person than in these photos). The red striped fabric on the apron is also vintage — probably from the 50s.
