Aprils Christmas Item/Sew It's Finished done....



Thanks ladies.... this month I have a UFO / Christmas item done.....

This quilt top was on my UFO list last year... so it has been neglected for a time....


I bought this jelly roll at a sale 

I loved the colours... but I hadn't noticed it was a Christmas fabric or kept tag of the name of the range
(Moda Crazy 8 - thanks ladies)

The top was made following a Quilt-a-long online but I also didn't keep a record of where that was.... so I do apologise for not giving credit there....

I was delighted for find just the perfect perfect binding... different shop different year and it was there waiting for me....


and I had some arbitrary Christmas fabric in my cupboard which was just perfect for the backing......


and I quilted rows ... and rows... and rows.....

stars and mistletoe and trees

ribbon and baubles and holly leaves

not a difficult design but the overall effect is fun

Dawn and Wendy are giving us additional motivation to finish off our items and each month one is done they send us a very cute stitchery design to make up..... I am now very committed to finishing something each month as I have started the stitcheries....

Here's the first block of "Seasons Of".....


I am using a charm pack of Bliss with some plain white homespun for the stitcheries

Righto... gotta go.... I'm sure there is another UFO leaping out at me....

I like the way the quilt has turned out. And I love the way you have done the quilting. The different rows of designs are very effective. Great result. I agree, it is the Crazy 8 fabric.
