Christmas Quilt

you know those crafting projects that just seem to take on a life of its own. and by the time you are to the finishing point you find yourself out of steam and uninterested because it has ended up taking WAY more time to finish then expected.

my CHRISTMAS quilt was one of those projects.
My sister in law and i started our quilts 2 years ago... they are finally bond! they have slightly different patterns but they are with the same fabrics. check hers out here. it's FABULOUS!
So glad to have checked this one off the list and have it put to good use!

it feels SO good to check this one off the list. i wouldn't allow myself to wrap any of the presents until i had this done. which definitely gave me some incentive to finish...
well... as finished as i can get it. i wasn't able to find 2 1/2" fabric coverable buttons so i'll just have to get my sister to find those for me... (Canada some times... ; )
my inspiration came from combining this pattern and this pattern.
it was tricky sewing basically a circle quilt but it was definitely worth it! and like my husband said..."you won't have to sew one of those for a really long time." which is probably a GOOD thing.


NOW, get sewing those christmas projects ; )
