Quilting on the frame is so boring. I'll quilt for a few minutes and then I'm off doing something else. And there's been so many great Christmas quilting projects on social media .....It's driving me nuts! There's to many UFO's laying around to start anything new. So....
A little play time is just what was needed to get my mind off of starting a new project. These petals were made a couple of years ago from scraps. Since they're a UFO it's okay to play with them! If you look closely you can see that they are tiny pieces of fabric that were sewn together until I had a piece big enough for the petal template.
Somehow I even managed to find the quilt pattern I designed two years ago. Must be my great organizing skills! NOT! It just the inability to throw away anything quilt related, with the hopes that someday I'll make all the patterns my scrappy brain can imagine.
Here's one of the quilts made from this fabric. Another one of my designs that was drafted after seeing so many Christmas bulb quilts around the internet. I also wanted to have an "ELF" feel to it. Who doesn't love the Christmas movie "ELF"?
The quilt below is the first quilt made from the "Joy" fabric bundle. I've pulled it out to quilt it. We'll see.....
Potholders would make a quick finish for the two orphaned blocks made from some of the scraps.
So what are you working on this weekend? Anything Christmasy?
