This is my Temecula Quilt Company 'We Wish You a Mini Christmas'. Totally done with scraps out of a gifted baggy of goodies, scrap batt, scrap backing, and left over binding. I had made my little blocks 3.5" unfinished - skinny sashing/corner stones, and that too cute Santa scrap made for finished size of 10.5" x 20.5".
I finished up the mini applique' sampler, too. Again, completely from scraps that someone would have tossed. Applique techniques: reverse, needle turn, bias, two fuseable, and facing - all techniques demonstrated by our program committee at one of our Quilt Guild meetings. Finished size: 12.5"x14.5"
So all of my December goals are finished - what to do?
Rather than start an all 'new' project, I have a few containers of play things. A tupper ware container of 4-patches made with 2" squares (and that barrel is stuffed). Pressed all these out while I considered what to do with them.
I remembered Bonnie Hunter's 'Dancing 9-Patch' , but rather than make more work by turning 4-patches into 9-patches - this is a project to use things up. So I have a Dancing 4-Patch in the works. The Kona Ash is left over from the Dog Gone Cute project and should be just enough for a cute scrappy baby quilt.
