Definitely the last authentically!

Even though I love this fabric range, I think I've seen enough of it for a while. My blog has been taken over with black, grey, white and pistacchio for long enough! So here it is, the second table runner, which we gifted to Rom's Wednesday playschool teacher this morning. She loved it, so that made staying up to midnight last night finishing it all the better! Here's a close-up of the quilting.I was lucky enough to recently win a giveaway of a vintage tablecloth and some dotty fabric over at Beckyetal - it's arrived and I look forward to making it into a skirt for me some time in the New Year :)And last, and by no means least, my Christmas present to myself also arrived! It's a mini art quilt by Victoria aka The Silly Boodilly. This quilt was the inspiration behind Tequila Sunhouse. When I discovered it was for sale in Victoria's Etsy store (and on sale!) I knew I had to have it! It'll go up on my inspiration wall when I finally claim my sewing nook in the spare bedroom in January :)

Hi! I love your table runner. It was an old fashion look but also a modern clean, Martha Stewart look. Very good! :)

The table runner is beautiful... what a lovely and thoughtful gift to give! (And the little art quilt was obviously meant to be yours!)

Lovely colours. Reminds me of Neopolitan ice cream.

Love the polka dot fabric.

Great gifts Lily, made and bought. I’ve been loving that little quilt from Victoria since I first saw it on her blog!

Enjoy Christmas time!

What perfect quilting - I'm also experimenting with straight lines. I like the look of it - yours is gorgeous.

I think I have that same tablecloth - now I'll have to look for it! That must be a very long table.
