Last month for my birthday my family all pitched in and gave me money to buy a new sewing machine. I like to give away my "first fruits" in most all I do, so I decided to make my first project on my machine a gift for my mom. Her favorite colors are red and green, so Christmas themed ideas are always good for her and her decor.
I found a YouTube tutorial from Jenny Doan at the Missouri Star Quilt Company for this pattern and decided to give it a whirl. It went together nicely and I got to try out the free motion quilting on my new machine, Sewfia. (For those of you who know me, I name everything. My new machine's name is Sewfia, which my husband suggested.) :)
I am in love with free motion quilting! I haven't moved past the "stipple" style but am starting to think about other designs to try. Here's the table runner with a matching gift tag.
