Holiday Lane is Ready for Christmas

A couple of posts ago I promised to share the finished Holiday Lane runner but a few cookie-baking sessions got in the way of that, so here it is.

The snowy palette of this one was what made me think that I needed to make it, and it was a good decision. Several really graphic prints and that one loose floral are a terrific combination. And the beautiful, soft feathered swirl that Roberta used to quilt it suggests a winter winds blowing through the neighbourhood.

It's amazing how the two simple house and tree shapes combine so effortlessly for such a sweet presentation; it's really all about the fabrics.

The grey and white backing and pinstripe binding really finish off the feel so nicely; this grey is a slightly darker version of the same print used in a few of the houses.

This will be a good one to keep out long after the Christmas decos come down because it can easily be a 'winter' runner, but it will definitely be enjoyed over the holidays. LUV!....M
