Feathers finished!

Feather-table-runner-ontable


While many I know in the US already have their Christmas decorations up, we here in Norway are a bit more laid back and won't decorate for several more weeks. Traditionally we decorate on the 23rd (yes, of December), but the American in me will probably start in about two weeks:)
Mens mange jeg kjenner i USA allerede har pyntet til jul, er jo vi her i Norge litt mer avslappet og venter en stund med det! Men amerikaneren i meg vil nok begynne så smått om et par uker:)

Until then I will enjoy my newly completed Feathers table runner.
Frem til da kan jeg nyte min nylig fullførte fjærløper.

Pattern by Anna Maria Horner. Linen blend background fabric from Scandinavian store Stoff og Stil. Feather fabric mainly Chicopee with some Flee Market Fancy and Madrona Road mixed in.
Mønster av Anna Maria Horner. Linstoff fra Stoff og Stil som bakgrunn, og stoff fra Chicopee, Flee Market Fancy og Madrona Road i fjærene.

"Organic" straight line quilting and scrappy border (again).
Quiltet med (ganske) rette linjer og nok en gang litt ymse i lukkekanten.

I think this will come back out after New Years because the colors remind me of crocus which is the first spring flower to bloom in our garden.
Tror denne vil komme frem igjen etter nyttår, for fargene minner meg litt om hagens første blomst - krokusen.

Linking up today with:
Plum and June

  7. Your runner is stunningly beautiful! The feathers almost look like they are floating. And I bought some Stof linen today. Might Ned to get some more!

  16. I love this! It's awesome! I think I like the tradition of not decorating until the 23rd of December better. I think we're a little too crazy to do it so early here.
