My Stop on the Holiday Lane Blog Hop



Hello readers and welcome to my stop on the Holiday Lane Blog Hop.

I'm excited to show you what I've done with the free Holiday Lane pattern created by Jill at Jillily Studios.  Thanks to Madame Samm at Sew We Quilt for sponsoring this blog hop and to Pauline at Quilt-N-Queen blog for being our cheerleader and organizer for this hop.

Jill's Holiday Lane pattern is so versatile, and since I love to decorate for Christmas I couldn't wait to sign up for this blog hop.  I really had fun with the pattern.  As soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to make it into a table runner for my kitchen.   I had some Christmas prints that I wanted to use, so I made the rooftops and shutters from different fabrics than the houses.  I hand appliqued' the trees, windows, and all of the snow on the rooftops and embroidered the windowpanes.



I really wanted to decorate the houses, but this year I not only have a new grandson, but we have a new cat.  And, both of them like to put things in their mouths.  So I decided to save all of these goodies and maybe in another year I can use them.  



I also used two of the houses and made this pillow to cover a 14" pillow form.  This was my first venture into piping, and I really like the look.



The table runner can also be used as a bed runner along with the pillow to add a touch of Christmas to a bedroom.  



I could always add a hanging sleeve and my decorations and make my runner into a wall hanging.  


Thanks Jill for a fun project!

I hope you will hop on over to visit the others taking part in today's Holiday Lane Blog Hop.

  12. The first thing that popped into my head when I saw your table runner was ... this Holiday Lane is in the ritzy part of town. Fabulous runner and pillow!

    Beautiful choice of fabrics ... LOVE how colorful they are.

    You certainly would have my vote for one of the top three for today.

  22. I love your table runner and cushion! The black starry fabric background is perfect for a nighttime scene and the striped piping looks just like a candy cane! This pattern really appeals to me, but as an Aussie it's a very unrealistic Christmas scene. Ours is yellow, brown, dry and crunchy!

  29. OM, I love what you did. Your use of fabrics really made HL look Christmasy. Even though you didn't use all those decorations, the way you placed the fabrics was perfect. I noticed you added the small light-colored border which made the design pop. And, of course, the striped binding/piping is my favorite. Excellent!!

  30. Congrats on the new grand baby and fur baby! Wise move on waiting for the dazzle on the pillow and table runner! The pillow piping is great! I love both of the items and how you can use them!
