Make it a Handmade Christmas Challenge - March

2014 Christmas Handmade Pledge
 
 
Hard to believe that we are half way thru the month of March and it really has roared in like a lion and rather happy to stay that way.  I am happy to have another gift to add to the box.
 
 
This was a pattern offered by Sheri at A Quilting Life  for the little project for the month and I thought it would make a great Christmas gift.  I did change her little white flip corners in the center of each flower so I could use some pretty white pearlized buttons I had.  I used Moda 'Audra's Iris Garden' candy charm pack for the flowers and corner stones and some scrap Kona Sand for the background/sashing.  The outer border and binding were from my scrap basket.  Also, the batt and backing were 'cut-offs' from a larger quilt.
 
I will be linking up with SewCalGal
 
 
 
 

 
I haven't had an 8-10 bobbin sewing weekend and this is the perfect time for that.  I have a few blocks done for Bonny Hunter's leader/ender challenge - LOZENGES.   I think I will be dumping barrels and bins, sorting, cutting, and stitching away in celebration of National Quilting Day. Hope you get some sewing time in.
 
Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  12. I love the your little Mini and the idea of using buttons sounds like something I would do. I have not joined in on the Christmas gift challenge but have been inspired by those participating. You are always working on something that inspires me.
