GOAL: USE ALL REMAINING CHRISTMAS SCRAPS
Two years ago I made this Christmas Quilt:
Almost all my Christmas and winter-related fabric was used in this quilt. Even the backing was almost entirely made from the bits and pieces I had leftover from the quilt.
Well, fast forward to two weeks ago. I was looking through my box of unfinished projects and leftover squares from past projects. Guess what I found? Not only were there scraps from the large quilt, but there were pieces that weren't even my fabric. Someone from Mystery Country Quilters must have given me some of their extra Christmas fabric. Here I am auditioning the few pieces I had.
Here is my completed top. I had to sew some of the half-square triangles a little smaller to get everything to fit. Unfinished size is 19" x 27". I had so much fun doing this, I can't explain it. All the beautiful yardage I have and I get more enjoyment out of using something that may otherwise get thrown out. Go figure.
I used most the remaining scraps along with this small piece of black fabric to do the backing. Anything 2" wide or wider was sewn together to do the binding.
Bud...what do you think? Will it do?
The only Christmas/winter fabric I have left is pictured below. I think it desires to have a quilt designed around it, although I only have 20" x 44". Good thing I like small quilts. Isn't it sweet?
May your day be full of family, friends, fun, and a little ice cream!
