Oops… Never mind!
I hope you have all been spoiled and enjoyed your end of year celebrations!
Personally, I had a good one but cannot even think of food anymore (or alcohol), I am full for a month!
So here is my belated Xmas quilt tutorial that I managed to finished just the day before Xmas!The circles remind me of baubles but since it is now a winter quilt, it reminds me of snow balls (not sure about that one !). I used fresh Xmas fabrics from Kate spain’s design called Joy and one fat quarter from Aneela Hoey.
What you will need:
several fat quarters or depending on how big you want your circles scraps of Xmas fabrics, cheap white fabric (I used an old bed sheet), white cotton fabric for the front of the quilt (as much as you want depending on how big you want your quilt to be), red fabric for the back, sewing kit, and plates of different sizes. And as you can see a cuppa too just to keep you going.
Start by marking around the circles on your fabrics:
Then, lay your white cotton fabric and lay on top your circles, decide where you want them and pin them in place (I used quilter’s safety pin) now blind stitch all around:
Once you’re happy with the result, you can now sandwich your quilt. I used cherry red fabric for the backing, cheap and cheerful but still does the trick. I wanted to do free motion quilting on the circles only, using white thread:
