WIP Wednesday Christmas Quilt FInally Finished- well almost!
I was determined to finish my Christmas quilt before the end of February. I just couldn't stomach the idea of having it linger on until March. This of course was compounded by the fact that I am super excited about the next quilt I will be making... so get it done I did. I sewed what felt like hundreds of tiny half square triangles into bows I pieced rows of short and tall presents- I used my new quilting frame and Juki 2000qi to quilt it- and all in all I am very pleased. This is the first real quilt I have done on the Juki and frame. I did another practice quilt with some simple stippling to get the feel for the set up and then away I went and for a first attempt I did pretty well. I learned some lessons along the way and the next one will be even better. This quilt was made with a layer cake and a charm pack of Dear Mr Claus fabric- and was quick, easy and fun to sew. If I get any interest I may try to do a tutorial- though it looks great as a Christmas quilt, it would also be great for birthdays- another big time for presents. That is all I accomplished this week and as soon as I get it bound I will well and truly be done and on to the next!
