Needlework Tuesday

Welcome back to Needlework Tuesday, hosted by Heather from Books and Quilts.  Don't you love the way I say that like I participate on a regular basis?  At best, my participation is sporadic, but I love checking in with Heather's beautiful projects and the others who link up.  

The last time I checked in, it was to show my progress on my Christmas mini-quilt.  It's finally finished!  And it's not even March.  I'm just considering myself way ahead of schedule for next Christmas. This quilt was based on a pattern I saw on Pinterest and selected to use up some large-scale Christmas fabrics left from other projects.  I'm happy with the finished product.  It's festive and cozy (flannel backing) and the perfect size for covering my legs and toes on a chilly evening. Here's the finished quilt:

If you're just visiting for Needlework Tuesday, or if it's your first time here, here are a few other things I've been stitching.

  1. I'd say you're definitely ahead of the game ;-) I love the fabrics - is that Charlie Brown I see?

  2. You do such beautiful work! Flannel backing - I remember you telling me about that - That would be a cozy quilt!! I need to find some easy projects - you make sewing look so easy and fun!

  3. The sweater I started last May, to be given for a Christmas present, is still "under construction". Like you, I am now looking forward to giving it NEXT Christmas. In the meantime, I have started a new quilt for Grand #1. Unfortunately, I am not enjoying this one either, and have slowed down on it too. A rarity for me...I LOVE quilting.

  4. I agree, you are way ahead of the game. I don't usually use Christmas fabrics, but the other day I was thinking that since they are generally on clearance this time of the year, perhaps I should make and exception and purchase a few pieces....

    Thanks for joining Needlework Tuesday.

  5. Wow, finishing a Christmas project in February is pretty amazing. Way to go! I love how it turned out. It will put you into a Christmas mood as soon as you start using it.
