I'm a little bit old fashioned - I love the old vintage look of Christmas.
The bright reds, whites and greens are fun and festive, but I still find myself drawn toward the older, more muted colors & those lovely scenes of years gone by.
My dear sweet friend, Trish, of Notes of Sincerity, gave me a piece of this vintage Christmas fabric last year and I've saved it...not knowing what I was going to do with it.
I couldn't bear to cut it up!
So I used it to make a simple table runner for my home.
I've had this old Santa plate for years and years.
It goes perfectly with my little runner.
I bound the runner with a piece of green poke-a-dot - modern, yet the perfect colors.
I quilted the center with a simple small wave and the outer border with a large swirl - I didn't want to detract from the sweet scenes in the fabric.
Thank you, Trish.
I love it.
