All this year I have been playing along with May Britt and Kris’s “One Finish A Month” project. I have quite a few finishes for this month but I can’t post them because they are Christmas surprises. However, I can show you this one.
I got this idea from Penny. It rang a bell when I came across it because I have an overflowing amount of scraps. So I quickly sat down, cut a bunch of them into strips and sewed them back together into this quilt. I just finished binding it last night.
None of the fabrics I used were necessarily bright or bold, but when I put them all together, surrounded them with white and gave them a busy border, I ended up with one cheerful, colorful quilt! I like it and so does our friend Willow.
Besides Christmas sewing I am also enjoying the Christmas Advent Swap. First thing after I jump out of bed every morning I open another gift from Teresa. What a great way to start a day. Do you notice all the pretty yellow? Teresa knows what I like and has made it so fun!
