Wonderful Wednesday - Holiday Sew-In Edition

Welcome to another edition of Wonderful Wednesday!!  When I posted Week 46, I alluded to the coming of this post.  Details of the Holiday Sew-In are included here. Apparently, I missed Wednesday, so I'm posting now.  On Thursday.  I'm hoping YOU can forgive me.  I'm going to blame it on my sinus infection.  :o((

Anyway, The Holiday Sew-In.  D hosted the event.  She also gave us the fabric requirements and brief instructions for the quick projects.  Quick, of course, is a relative term!!  :P

Napkin production shown below (left) and table runner production on the right.  Preparing to flip the tube:

Here I am, lining up for a final press before the magic happens:

Fold and stitch:

Pure sewing magic:

Topstitching for the finish:

Ta da!!!  The 10-Minute Table Runner

D spent the afternoon binding off her donation blanket, Garter Swish by Stephen West, for Wool-Aid:

B trimmed up the fronts of her napkins:

She then topstitched the perimeter:

Look closely and you will see the napkin magic:

You can see that I am topstitching, too:

Here I am with my ONE completed napkin of the day:

 It didn't take long (another day!) to finish the set at home:

 Thank you, Dee, for helping me create a festive table:

Care to make some table decorations of your own??

HERE are the pattern links (in case you missed them last week) to do just that:

Shared at Finish It Up Friday over on Crazy Mom Quilts.

Until next time...
Ho! Ho! Sew!!!


  1. Sew-ins with friends are the best! Thanks for sharing your accomplishments. It's inspiring!

  2. Sounds like fun! Thanks for the links. I am thinking about making some napkins for my boys with craft beer fabric. I don't have a serger and didn't relish the idea of turning all those edges.

  3. How nice to sew with a friend.Thank you for the link.

  4. It is always fun to see what you are up to! Great holiday projects.

  5. Looks like a very productive time. The table runner and napkins turned out beautifully!
