I’m not sure what exactly motivated me to get hopping on some holiday sewing, but recently I’ve started a few fall & winter projects and have one all finished to share today! Maybe it’s that reality has set in and I know I need lots more time to finish everything I want to, so I’m getting a head start?
The fabrics are all from my stash—the quilter’s linen (not actual linen, but quilting cotton) is by Robert Kaufman. The green polka dots is from that awesome shopping trip in Maine from earlier this year. I thought it was Amy Butler or Kaffe Fassett, but it happens to be by Hoodie, not sure who exactly that is! And all the low volume background prints are from my stash.
The backing is an Aunt Grace polka dot from years and years ago. It is from one of the very first quilts I ever made—back before I even had a blog. That was when I thought you really needed 5 1/2 yards of fabric to back a twin sized quilt. Ha ha, how times have changed!!!
And the binding is the same, from a box of bindings I made years and years ago before I started making my binding slightly larger (usually I cut it 2.75 inches wide). Many of the 2.5” squares came from my scrap box.
I’m counting this as scrap project #3 of 52.
Have you started any holiday sewing? Do tell!
