Christmas in July
I have followed the Christmas in July Blog Hop hosted by Rebecca of Sew Festive Handmade. Today is the link-up of projects you made during all the lovely inspiration.
I entered one on my mini feather trees from the Think Christmas Blog Hop in the mini catagory. Fun rick-rack, stitchery and buttons for a whimsical tree for my 12" table topper hanger.
This is my finished quilt made during the monthly installments of Festive Mystery by Sue Aubry of QuiltTimes. I opted to have one less row than her pattern - but had the blocks made, so used them to make a matching pillow. The quilt is 44" x 52" and the pillow is 18".
I used a green thread for one direction of the cross-hatch quilting. And then a red thread for the opposite direction of the cross-hatch.
I love this red on red floral wide backing on the quilt. The pillow is an over-lap design - using the berry print - so the casing can be removed for cleaning. I will probaly use this set on my day bed during the holiday season.
Please visit Rebecca to see all the entries. There are three catagories: Quilt/Tree Skirt, Home Decor, Small Project.
