1  Christmas Charm Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by beckybooski on: July 13, 2009 08:15:33 AM
I know it's July, but I actually started this last December and there was no way I was going to get it done in time for last Christmas! I finished this last month, and it's tucked up safely until this Christmas. Smiley

Made with a Moda Merry and Bright layer cake - I went for simple this time!

The back is the Yuletide Critters print from Michael Miller, and a cotton bed sheet

And the obligatory dog immediately leaping onto the thing you're taking a photo of shot

My quilting has come along way in just a year! The Christmas quilt I made last year had no proper binding because I was too scared to try it!

2  Christmas Wrapping Quilt (lots of photos!) in Quilting: Completed Projects by beckybooski on: November 27, 2008 01:32:42 PM
Hi everyone - this is the first of my own creations to put up on Craftster, so here goes!

I made this quilt for my mum and called it 'Christmas Wrapping'. My Mum LOVES Christmas, and the busier and brighter it is the better - we don't do subtle! So the idea is that the quilt looks like the bag full of Christmas wrapping paper you get left over on Christmas morning, all jumbled up and mental. I think it looks like the inside of the Quality Street tin though, lots of bright shiny colours.

This is the biggest quilt I've ever made, and it's lap quilt sized. Previous attempts at quilts have been crib-sized, so I'm extra proud of this one, I love it.

Never having quilted anything before I just used embroidery thread to sew little stars to hold the layers together. I like the way it looks.

I'm so proud, I just want to show everyone I meet what I've made!
