    Xmas table runner and placemats

    My BFF bought some beautiful Xmas fabric and a pattern. When she came to visit she brought it and asked for help. She has been sewing for a long time but never quilted so I gave her a little crash course on how to read the pattern, cut out the fabric and little tricks on piecing , sandwiching and quilting STD. We worked together and she finished it by herself...here is the results.....she now is cutting out more sets to give at Xmas...i think she has the bug...lol

    Those are just gorgeous. She did a great job and I think she does have the bug and is a narural.
