Homespun Holidays

It’s true. I’ll admit it. I’ve hardly done anything except sew this month. But if it weren’t for these quilting challenges, I’d most likely have been hit full-on by now with the winter blahs, so it’s justifiable therapy. (That’s my story, and I’m stickin’ to it!)

January’s number for the CQUSA “Get ‘er Done” Challenge was number eight, the “Homespun Holidays” panel:


Since I’ve been up to my ears in appliquéd roses with the UFO challenge, this has been a nice little project to work on when I just couldn’t stand another moment of hand stitching.


Nothing fancy in the finishing, just a solid maroon border, followed by a little angel print border that seemed to be made for this panel. (Another bonus: everything used was from my stash!) Most of the quilting is simple outlining, and I bound it in the same maroon solid. Finished it off with a hanging sleeve and a few primitive wood heart buttons tacked on here and there. The finished size is 28” x 35.”

Might make a nice Christmas gift for someone next year… if I can part with it!
