    Happy Holly-Daze!!!!!!!!!

    Happy Holly-Daze!!!!

    Perhaps I got a a little carried away with the holly, in fabrics and FMQing?
    Thus, the name for this runner!!

    I made this for my "adopted" family's Christmas swap.
    Did the photo ops and totally forget to photo the label, as well as measure it.
    From what I remember when choosing/cutting the backing, finished size is approx. 15"x67".
    All the fabrics, came from my stash ... love stash shopping!

    Honestly, the straight line quilting was far harder to do, than the FMQ'd holly!!
    Thanks for looking ..... and a Happy New Year to you!

    It's really nice! Wish I'd been part of the swap and won it. It's a great pattern.

    So pretty. I love the holly quilting and it definitely isn't too much holly IMO. The name is great, though. I'm sure whoever received it was very pleased.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Carried away with Holly? I didn't think that was possible

    Lovely runner and excellent quilting!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    She was quite pleased and I was too, that she managed to scoop it.
