This Little Elf ....

.... is working hard to get the gifts made in time!

Currently working on a table runner for my sister in law. Really pleased with how it is coming together.  

The quilt top:

These colours and fabrics match the tree cushion I made for her last year. 

I've quilted straight lines echoing the brown lines dividing the patterned fabric, quarter inch from each seam. Then I decided it needed something extra! So I added an extra bit of quilting on the green panels. A little 'V' accent. I used washi tape as a guide so they were all the same size and the lines were straight.

All quilted and trimmed and ready for binding...

The only bit of hand stitching I actually like is hand finishing off binding!

All finished up!

Hope she likes it!
