So the other day I showed you the first of many blocks I have made for my Christmas quilt. 
Well I decided I couldn’t hold out any longer and wanted to share it with you all.  I finished my quilt.
So here it is before the quilting, I am pretty excited and happy about it, apart from one mistake which I didn’t notice until it was too late too fix, but I am going with the “its handmade” and only my second finished quilt,

Linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Piecedover at Freshly pieced.
I sent it to Sue my long arm quilter on Tuesday and I got it back on Thursday!. I still cant believe she could fit me in at such a busy time of the year! She is a star.
I didn’t buy binding for it when I bought the kit and after seeing it quilted I just had to buy coordinating fabric, so on Friday I went to the quilt shop that I originally bought the kit from, which is an hours drive away and got my binding fabric. Then on Friday evening I cut and sewed on the binding front and spent Saturday hand sewing the binding onto the back. I will post photos of the finished quilt when I get that post written up.


  1. I've never seen one like this! It's adorable!

  2. It is really lovely Sam, well done and well done your quilter too for turning it around so quickly!
