It's Day Five Of The Christmas In July Blog Hop

It's my day (along with several others) to share a little Christmas in July fun.
I feel so lucky to have such amazing and talented blogger friends...you all rock! 


Earlier in the month I made a quilt for a Riley Blake Designs blog tour.
I loved the fabric so much, I used the leftover fabric to make a table runner.


The fabric, Christmas Delivery, is cute and beautiful!


Here's the quilt I made earlier this month...


The quilt and runner patterns can be found in my Craftsy shop HERE.

Check out the other incredibly talented bloggers. You'll be wow'd for sure!
Be sure to visit them all and leave a sweet comment...it will be appreciated!

Cute, cute, cute, Carol--as always. It has been fun seeing what is going on in bloggerland with this hop. THX for hosting it and the giveaway chance. Riley Blake fabric is the best!

LJ said...

That is such a cute line of fabric; I can see why you love it. I thought some of the fabrics could easily be used other times of the year and no one would be the wiser. I'm in love with the red pickup and how you designed the table runner. Waaay baaaack when, Dad tied the branches of our tree together and then tied it to the top of the car. That trek to the woods to get our tree and getting it into the house, was a super time.

allthingzsewn said...

Such a cute pattern and thanks for the tute. I'm going to give the runner a try. Thank for hosting the hop. I did not really have the time to enjoy this one, so I'm going back Sunday and visit all participants. Thanks again for all you do.

Love, love the table runner. Thanks for all the hard work you have done to make such a successful hop.

Carol said...

Love the table runner, Carol! Your creativity amazes me. The blog hop has been great, as always. I've been pondering the "House" hop, but not sure I want to commit just yet. Will try to decide soon and check to see if there is still room for me. Thanks for sharing your ideas!

Kathy @ Kwilty Pleasures said...

Well my name is all over this. I am totally loving the truck and tree theme the holidays. I have been buying ornaments for a theme tree in the foyer. Did I mention, I also hoard Charm packs with over 60 in my collection. But these I would need to use! Thanks for the hop!

ShirleyC said...

The quilt is incredibly cute! My daughter and her husband would love that. His dad has an old truck like that, and they've decorated with some red truck prints. Not that I'd have time to make the quilt. LOL Maybe a table runner. Troy lost his dad in May.

Kathy E. said...

Carol, your work is always so beautiful! How clever to pose your quilt in a playground...it's perfect! I enjoyed many of the stops along this hop, but had so many fires in the oven this summer that I couldn't participate. I'd love to join in on the house hop, if you still have room! duchick at gmail dot com

Susan P said...

Hi Carol! I love the quilt and now I love the runner. Such cute fabric and it looks fabulous in both uses. I have enjoyed this blog hop so much - thank you again for organizing it. I would play along in September but that's back to school time and we are just SO busy then. I will play along though and check out all the cool ideas everyone comes up with. Happy Friday! ~smile~ Roseanne

That's great to be able to make a table runner with the extra fabrics. You'll enjoy that! This has been a fun hop, with all sorts of different quilty Christmas items. Great to see what other quilters come up with to get ideas flowing. Thanks!

I love the trucks with the trees in them. And the fabric is extra sweet. I have only seen it online so am hoping to find it in a store soon.

Cute quilt, I love the truck ;)

Loving that table runner! Such a fun hop! Happy Weekend!

Suze said...

Your quilt and your tablerunner are fabulous. You always have interesting projects. This hops has been phenomenal. Two of my grandchildren are coming Sunday afternoon and staying until Tuesday evening while Dada goes to St. Louis to see his dream team the Cardinals play baseball. So, I found what may be a project for them while they are here. They always want to help cook and do whatever they can. My grandson in 12 and my granddaughter just turned 5. She may be a little young to do much on Tuna's wonderful directions for a fleece blanket and I bet she can still supervise. I think they will have a ball doing this. Their stepsister will have to make one the next time she comes. They all get along well and yet there is still a sibling rivalry. Thanks for a great hop and I have had a wonderful time celebrating. To you and all the participants and readers - Merry Christmas in July. susan dot dietrich at cox dot net
