This week has involved a lot of waiting. While I was waiting, I kept my hands busy by hand sewing the binding on my Christmas quilt. This was a sew along with Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts.
I love this stage of making a quilt.
The red and white striped binding is just what I wanted!
The quilting is a pantograph called "Frost".
The background is Essex linen.
The sun shone long enough this morning for a photoshoot outside!
I will be linking up to Finish it up Friday and Slow Sunday stitching with Kathy.
This is such a cute quilt! I think the mitten blocks are my favorite. :)ReplyDelete
Love the finished result! Beautiful!ReplyDelete
How festive and fun! I love the backing and the candy cane striped binding. And the quilting is perfect! Nicely done, Gail. Is this one a gift or a keeper?ReplyDelete
I will be keeping this one...for use in our living room during December. Nice to have a quilt while reading a book or doing some hand sewing .Delete
I knew that striped binding would be perfect and it is! Wonderful finish, Gail!ReplyDelete

I like your choice of the dark background color. An unusual choice for a holiday quilt, but very interesting.ReplyDelete
Love your choice of background. For some straying from white or beige is difficult. Looks great!ReplyDelete
