I joined Di’s Christmas in August Challenge 🙂 It is to finish three Christmas projects, and on Friday night I finished the first one. It is a Christmas quilt that I started 2 years ago. When I got Nina I went crazy quilting it with gold thread, and finally finished off the binding with a pretty stitch. Here it is blowing in the wind:
I put the binding on backwards so that instead of handstitching it, I could use a decorative stitch. I have to say that working with gold thread is a nightmare. It took a while to do the binding – the thread broke every few inches. Still, it is done now 🙂 Here is a closer look at the quilting and binding:
I’m happy with the quilting, but it is not as nice as what Cheryl did on my log cabin:
So, back to my Christmas challenge. I joined it because I wanted to get a few things done for myself for Christmas, and I am usually too busy doing things for others, so I decided this was a good idea. My plans are to make myself a Christmas apron for my second project, and for the third one, well… maybe a basket like Cheryl gave us the stitchery patterns for, or.. some potholders, …. or some coasters like Alice made, or…. some cushion covers, or.. or,… or…..!!!! I’m sure I’ll think of something 🙂
