Let's Book It - December 2014


The last month of the year!  I hope you have been enjoying re-visiting your books, magazines, patterns, saved files, and other resources that have been sitting in those dark cob webs.  I have already pulled all my resources for some clean out as well as tagging for 2015 projects.

This was my resource for December - so many lovely projects in this book that will need re-visiting for sure. 

And this was the project that I selected.  I knew I had scraps and left over charms that would work perfectly for this wallhanging. 

I used a medium gray thread for the top and bottom and just did a simple meander.

I used a scrap for my hanger and a piece of old Thimbleberries for backing.  I used it's selvedge for the label "Old World Comforts" which I thought suited as of all the variety of scraps/fabric lines used on the front.

Finished size 20" x 36" and a fun project to finish off the year.


We have the Quilt Barn Pin and Tumbling Blocks Charm for this month's link up.  I do ship internationally, so it's time for you to share:

Sewingly Yours,

Very cute! I am just amazed at all you get finished! Do you have little elves? ;-) Happy New Year!

Very cute. I haven't joined in with the 'Let's book it' this year but I'm going to in 2015. I even have a project picked out so I'm really pleased you're continuing it.

What a darling project your 'booked' for December -- though I like your final version even better than the book version!! :)

I like the mix of blocks with the stars, it turned out wonderful.

The wall hanging turned out beautifully! Have a very happy New Year.

I love this book (I have the cover quilt in pattern form) and love the wallhanging you made! The fabrics you used are right up my alley. Have a very Happy New Year and I'm looking forward to more "Let's Book It" in 2015!

I reckon I have a post coming that will see me begin 2015 in a great way and let me participate in the challenge once again. See you soon!
