It is so nice when I can check off things on our Christmas list. Whether it be a purchased or handmade item, it seems the list of things to do before we head off for Christmas is long.
We have a family that we've become friends in the last 5 years and I wanted to make them a lap quilt as a Christmas gift.
Have you ever made a quilt and then once it is pieced, quilted, bound, washed and ready to give as a gift you wish you could make changes to it. I now wish I had used a different fabric for the inner border that would have really popped. It looked good together at the store but now I'm not liking it.
What was I thinking using that inner border fabric. So many fabrics from the Sunkissed line that I could have used. Oh well!
I know our friends will like it especially their 4 little girls. I can already see them lined up on the couch snuggling with it.
Pattern: a piece of cake by Camille Roskelley for Thimble Blossoms
Fabric: Sunkissed by Sweetwater for Moda (1 layer cake plus, fabric for 2 borders, backing, binding)
Size: 71 x 63
Quilted: by Stich 'N Quilt in Mableton, GA
Binding: hand stiched by my mom
Now I'm off to the sewing room to finish some gifts for our girls, family, and friends.
Have a great day!
