Button Blooms

I have been making the most of my time to sew during the holidays. It is so nice not having to rush off to work each morning ... I may even have had a few pyjama days!!

My latest achievement is this table runner called Button Blooms.


This was one of the kits I received from Sarah as part of the Fig Tree Club.


The fabric range is California Girl and the pattern uses two charm packs for the blocks.


Each block finishes at 5 1/4 inch so they are rather dainty and cute.


I wasn't sure about the light blue posts and borders but now it's done I love it.


As is usually the case, it looks much nicer to the naked eye than in photos.


Today I am making some bindings for a couple of other projects. I really like binding which is just as well as I have a fair bit to do in the next few weeks.
