4 little Christmas Quilts
The first little quilt I have to share with you today was made a long time ago. It was designed to have unfinished edges. I am thinking after Christmas I just might sew on a binding and make it look a little more finished. It reads "All Hearts come home for Christmas! It measures 8" x 12". The fabrics were fused on and then some hand stitching added.
The second little quilt is a picture of Santa. The pattern shows filling his beard in with white buttons of all sizes. I think that would look cute; but don't think I could have it done by this Christmas. It might just get some TLC after the holidays too. This little quilt is 16" x 14". The Santa is all fused down and hand stitching added all around. I sewed on the four red bows in the corners. This one finished without adding a binding. Just sewing the 3 layers together and then turning and hand stitching closed the space left open.
This little quilt is one I made up with some Christmas color scraps. It called for all the reds to be up and down and the greens sideways; but I switched it up a bit and turned squares. This one measures 17" x 14". This was machine pieced and hand quilted and I did add a binding on this one.
This last little quilt I have shared on my previous blog. It is a trip around the world. It was from a kit from Hearthside Quilts. This little quilt measures 28" x 21". It was machine pieced and hand quilted.
Each day we are closer to enjoying the Blessings of Christmas. I hope you are ready and will be able to sit and relax and enjoy some time with Family!
