Christmas quilt #4!

Linking up to Manic Monday!
I need to pick up my pace so that I can finally get all my Christmas projects blogged, huh? I'll do my best, readers!

Here's quilt number 4, for my niece. She was underwhelmed by it (what 10 year old is really excited by blankets??) but her mom and grandma (my sister-in-law and mother-in-law) were pretty darn impressed. This one was huge - definitely queen or even king sized! I got a bit carried away, but I love all the fabrics I chose and know it will last her a good long time!


Straight-line quilted, alternating between stitch-in-the-ditch and halfway down a strip. 

Backed mostly with purple flannel, but with a strip of regular white cotton down the middle to make it big enough. Machine bound with white cotton.

This weekend I managed to get back into the swing of sewing, too, which is great! I made progress on two of the projects that I discussed in my post for the Finish-a-Long. I finished the top for item number 6 - I promise to take pictures and post them soon! After finishing that, though, I realized that I can't baste it because ALL my basting safety pins are tied up with project number 1, so I did a bunch of the quilting on that, and will have to keep doing so in order to work on anything else! Oops!!
