Feeling Festive!

Well, I got my quilt finished, all I have left is to piece the backing and send it off to be quilted... YAY!! So of course being a quilter, we never rest :) I pulled out some of my christmas fabrics and decided I needed to use them up ( so I can buy more of course). Looked through some books and patterns to see what I wanted to make and came across this little wall hanging in Elenore Burns book Egg Money Quilts. I loved it and had to make it! So using only stash fabrics here it is....



Wait for it.....




Wait for it.....

Isn't it just the cutest wreath you've ever seen?! I Love the great big 3D bow the most!! I love it! It is a pretty nice size at 26x26.  Real Christmas eye candy, if I do say so myself :)  I can't wait for my wall quilt hanger to arrive so I can hang it up in style! The design wall just does nothing for it. ha ha  Ive decided to make a couple more to give as gifts to my childrens teachers for Christmas. I think they'll like them. They can display them in the class room or hang it on their doors! Very kid friendly with  nothing on it to fall off or a kid to choke on. Plus it's a good way to use up my stash!

  1. That is gorgeous. I am always amazed at people who quilt well (I'm a knitter who can't sew a straight line!)
