  41. Kati says:

    I really like these…..I don’t have a way to ‘quilt’…..but I suppose the top one isn’t really ‘quilted’ with a fancy stitch, so I could probably do something like that on my machine…? I really need to get to work on my Christmas gift projects!!

  42. Jess says:

    Woo hoo!! I’ve got my sewing machine in working order again after a bit of a snafu last week, so I’m ready to piece my table runner and finish piecing my tree pants!!!

  43. Alice says:

    Yay! I can go to work happy that I’ll have a fun project for me to do tonight.

  44. Glenys says:

    I like the way they look!
