Merriment and a Winner

Do you remember these cute little blocks I was making for my newest Christmas quilt? Well they are all sewn together, have borders added and Tuesday I basted my quilt. I spent the next couple of days quilting it. I always think I can do that faster than I can. I quilted holly leaves and ribbons through it. In addition to getting this quilted I was hoping to get it bound and some more scraps cut for another quilt. Yes I always have such high hopes for productivity.
 I did get it bound after two days of quilting. Yes I am a poky machine quilter. But I can get that binding on in no time.
 Now my little Christmas quilt is all done. A week before Thanksgiving, so happy about that. Now we will be able to enjoy it this holiday.
I like the alternate pattern the blocks create. I think it looks like a jumble of Christmas packages. I'm calling this little Christmas throw Merriment. You can find the pattern in my Etsy shop.

Now as promised I need to pick a winner for last weeks giveaway. Thank you everyone for your great response. The random number generator picked #22. So Loris you are our lucky winner. So happy for you! If you will send me your snail mail address I'll get your magazine out to you.

  2. I like the gift quilt you made. The stripe inner border is such a good touch. I am working on a Christmas gift these last few days. Waited a bit too late to start but it isn't a big project.

  3. This is a pretty Christmas quilt! I love your holly leaves quilting. Just about every stage of working on a quilt takes me longer than I estimate - funny how that happens. I've sure learned not to rely on that estimation, and it's a super nice treat when things actually only take that long, you know?
