Don't go yet...I am gonna show
you what I made using her pattern "Gift Wrapped"








Tami asked me to review the pattern for
"Gift Wrapped"

I asked if I could show the versatility of her pattern
 by making a table runner and using quilters cottons.
Then THIS happened.

I cut all the applique pieces and
used Steam a Seam 2 Lite
to iron them to a tone on tone white background.


I had some red and green polkadot fabric
in my stash, added solid white
to make a pieced backing.


The applique technique is a raw edge.
I used black thread to outline each appliqué
piece, three times.


I machine quilted the table runner on my
Bernina 740 with a long wavy line.
I love the dual feed feet that my machine offers.


The finished runner measures 17 1/2 x 80"


Waaay to big for my patio table
but will be great for a larger dining room table.


I made the binding white solid
so the presents "float" in the design.


I think this turned out sew cute!
But as Tami always says...
use her slub canvas to make a floor rug
and think outside the quilting box
