Celtic Solstice Mystery Quilt Part 4

I really like 4 patches and 9 patches so Part 4 was a breeze for me to do.  It's a good thing too because I have some Christmas sewing to get finished.  These were made with green and orange 2" strips and will finish at 3" in the quilt.

I've made three Christmas table runners as gifts for my two sister-in-laws and my mother-in-law. They have to put up with me talking about my quilting all the time, so I thought I'd make them a little something.

And, because I promote the use of  fabric bags instead of paper or plastic, I also made some Christmas bags to wrap them in instead of paper.  

They can use them for wrapping presents in next year.  These are made using the pattern developed for the Green Bag Lady which is an eco-friendly art project started by Teresa VanHatten-Granath in 2008.
