Then life happened and the summer got crazy. My craft room was not really accessible and I quite frankly lost my sewing mojo so I kept putting it off. And off. But, I finally got it finished...on the morning of the meeting. I normally like to hand bind my mini quilts, but that was taking forever so I had to machine bind it. And then I ended up being an hour late to the meeting. Whoops! But I got it done though!
On her preference sheet, the lady I was making the mini for said she liked Christmas so I thought I would go in that direction. I found this adorable Patchwork Tree Quilt Block Tutorial from Amy at Diary of a quilter that I thought would be great for our modern quilt swap. So I ordered this super cute Red Dot...Green Dash... Moda charm pack.
I decided to add white sashing to mine to make it look a little cleaner and I used my go-to wavy line quilting.
I think it came out adorable. Actually, I hated to give it away! I think I'll definitely have to make myself one in the future. The pictures definitely could have been better, but I was running so late that I literally took them using my phone on the table outside the guild meeting before I walked in to turn it in.
Until later, happy sewing!Jamie
