Do you remember these cute little blocks I was making for my newest Christmas quilt? Well they are all sewn together, have borders added and Tuesday I basted my quilt. I spent the next couple of days quilting it. I always think I can do that faster than I can. I quilted holly leaves and ribbons through it. In addition to getting this quilted I was hoping to get it bound and some more scraps cut for another quilt. Yes I always have such high hopes for productivity.
I did get it bound after two days of quilting. Yes I am a poky machine quilter. But I can get that binding on in no time.
Now my little Christmas quilt is all done. A week before Thanksgiving, so happy about that. Now we will be able to enjoy it this holiday.
I like the alternate pattern the blocks create. I think it looks like a jumble of Christmas packages. I’m calling this little Christmas throw Merriment. You can find the pattern in my Etsy shop.
Now as promised I need to pick a winner for last weeks giveaway. Thank you everyone for your great response. The random number generator picked #22. So Loris you are our lucky winner. So happy for you! If you will send me your snail mail address I’ll get your magazine out to you.
super cute quilt!
Slow but steady wins the race. That is a wonderful quilt.
I like the gift quilt you made. The stripe inner border is such a good touch. I am working on a Christmas gift these last few days. Waited a bit too late to start but it isn't a big project.
This is absolutely adorable!
This is a pretty Christmas quilt! I love your holly leaves quilting. Just about every stage of working on a quilt takes me longer than I estimate – funny how that happens. I've sure learned not to rely on that estimation, and it's a super nice treat when things actually only take that long, you know?
Congrats on a beautiful finish!
That is such a pretty quilt! I love all things Christmas.. and especially love the fabrics in your quilt.. xx
Thank you so much, Em! How fun!
Very very pretty! You've had a productive few days, well done! I decided today to cut out and sew up the blocks for a baby quilt…should have been writing school reports…sigh…
This is a great Christmas quilt. Nice you finished with time to spare.
