Happy New Year! How did you ring in the new year? Me, I was asleep by 9:30. Just how I like it. Woke up feeling refreshed and got to work on some sewing!
This is the only handmade gift that I started and finished before Christmas. This is a mini quilt made for a wall hanging or a small table topper. I made it for my mom and I was so glad I was able to get it finished!
I took various sizes of fabric scraps (this is a great scrap buster!) and using a fabric glue stick, glued them down to a piece of muslin. Once glued in place, I assembled a quilt sandwich and did some straight line quilting vertically and horizontally. Easy peasy!
This type of mini quilt is quite addicting to make! I am working on some now for my shop.
Here we have the first finish for 2014! I got a bee in my bonnet about making a churn dash quilt shortly before Christmas.
It was quilted towards the end of 2013 and today I machine stitched the binding down. I quite like how it turned out!
This is a baby sized quilt and this one is staying with me.
Can you believe it is 2014?? Anything you are looking forward to making this year?
