ChookyBlue Christmas swap


A lovely Christmas runner came today from Gertie in Australia. I am so thrilled by it. She made it using my favorite technique" Applique" and it is just beautiful. she included some lovely fabric, a not pad from Australia and a lovingly made Christmas card. I have to say that the piecing is so precise that I thought it was a pre-printed panel until I looked closer. Gertie also fussy cut tiny Christmas ornament fabric so that all the ornaments are visible on the runner.
I could not ask for more.

That is beautiful!

I'm sorry I wasn't given a pattern for the crow and pumpkin quilt. I could dig out the measurements and outline pic if that is any help?

I know what you mean about pattern names. I have made something similiar and the blocks are called Cobblestones. They are square, your pattern looks like it might be rectangles, though it is hard to tell.
