Back when I pieced this top, I even purchased the backing fabric so I didn't even have the excuse of not having the fabric to back it. About 2 weeks ago, I decided it was time. I want this quilt finished for this Christmas. I want this quilt on my living room couch when the Christmas tree goes up the first weekend of December.
I was hoping I was going to be able to finish quilting it this weekend, but I didn't...
I did all the stitching in the ditch this weekend.
|The pattern is called Hourglass Patches and I found it in a book called "Thimbleberries New Collection of Classic Quilts: 28 Quilting Inspirations for the Home".|
I stitched around each block and along the inner border.
And in the outer border, I'm FMQing some holly leaves.
With any luck, this quilt will get finished next weekend.
