Gift Sewing Madness – Day 2

Happy Thursday!

I started sewing early this morning because today is “Date Night” and I need to make an unscheduled trip to the hair salon! This week we are doing dinner and theater!  Our local community theater is excellent – tonight’s musical is “Nunsense”!

I made this table runner earlier this fall for son#1 and his family.  It is a half hexie Christmas tree — one of the popular Jenny Doan tutorials.  I’d made a similar one a few years ago and my DIL loved it.  I had plenty fabric left over so I made one for them.

Today I made matching placemats, using the Fat Quarter Shop Pocketed Placemat video tutorial. It is a great pattern and very easy to make.  Each placemat measure 12 x 18 inches, you start with any 12.5 inch unfinished quilt block add borders and a pocket – and voila you’re finished with the top.  No binding — YAY!!

I machine appliqued a tree onto a 12.5 background square. I used a small blanket stitch with metallic thread. My photos aren’t great but the backing fabric with the Reindeer is sew cute!
