OK, so if you don’t know the phrase above, you need to watch the movie “Elf”!! I just named my last quilt “Don’t Be a Cottonheaded Ninnymuggins!”
I finished the second of four Christmas quilt kit UFO’s!! Two down, two more to go!
This kit uses all Mary Engelbreit fabrics with an adorable center panel surrounded by pieced borders!
It was fun to make, and relatively fast, too!
I used an all-over green Christmas tree print for the backing and found a cut elf label! Yay!
Two UFO’s down, two more to go!
I forgot to show you a little wall hanging I made in October for a guild challenge to use a bird applique cut out using a die from the Accuquilt GO! our guild recently bought in a quilted project.
My master bathroom has several birds on wall art, so I made this wall hanging for that room. I used one bird shape cut with the GO! and then free hand cut a few other birds, as well as branches and leaves.
I love the Martha Negley oranges fabric I used for the border! I grew up in Florida with lots of citrus trees in my back yard, which were often filled with singing birds!! I named this quilt “Choir Practice”!
I always decorate our home for Christmas beginning the day after Thanksgiving! I had my sons bring up the tubs of decor from the basement tonight before they left to go back to their apartments, so time to put away my fall decor for another year, and get busy putting out the Christmas stuff!!
So, what are you all up to this weekend?
