2012 - Finish #1!

When the power went out yesterday morning (for a full 14 hours!), I was in the middle of finishing the binding on the 12 Days of Christmas Quilt.
I'm a hard core quilter though. I just pulled my chair up close to the french doors and kept going.

This morning I can show off my first finish for 2012!
12 Days of Christmas
Yay!

I still have some 12 Days of Christmas fabric in the store (40% off until 1/21/12 to celebrate this finish.)
There is also a fabric bundle in the Etsy store. The sashing stripe is this fabric.

Pin It!

  3. Gorgeous in the snow! But it would be equally gorgeous on a cozy chair by the fireplace, with a good book and a cup of hot chocolate!

  7. I hope I might be able to get a bit of advice from you. I am going to bite the bullet, and try to machine quilt a large quilt on my machine. Do you use a long arm on yours, or do you use your machine? If you do use your machine, what method of basting do you use so that the layers don't move as you work with the fabric to quilt it? Thanks for your help!

    I can recalled taking hand-piecing up during a long power outage just because I couldn't bear to be sewing machine-less :o)

  16. It looks awesome! Good for you keeping going even with the power out! I can't say I did anything when the power went out other than play with the puppy & complain about how cold it was ;)
