Other posts on this project: Christmas Runner.

It took me a while, but I finally finished appliqueing the patches to my Christmas Runner. Blindstitching takes quite a bit of time, and since this is my first attempt at applique there’s definitely some puckering around a few of the corners. Since it’s done by hand and not on a flat surface, I’ll have to learn how to make sure everything lays flat. I worked on this almost every night while we watched TV, and I’m really happy with it. It looks fantastic in our dining room.

Next I need to baste and quilt it, then put on a binding. We’re having a holiday party in a couple weeks, so we’re planning on decorating for Christmas after Thanksgiving. I think this will be done by next weekend.
