It was a spur of a moment purchase buying a fat quarter of A Merry Little Christmas. I actually had no idea what I was going to do with it when I thought of doing a small Christmas themed Swoon.
I have loved baptist fan quilting on these so I had to go with it as well.
It was annoying working with directional fabric but I'm trying to not let it bother me ;)
And with the lovely Swoon leftovers, I made these two minis.
The pinwheel is quilted with straight lines and the other in a continuous spiral(love).
And because I only used 8FQs from the stack I was able to create both of these.
I bought some yardage for the borders and ended up with two lovely Christmas quilts.
I fussy cut the borders; so annoying lol.
I wasn't too found of the next colours in the beginning but now I really like them.
I was short a FQ so I added in the solid teal that I had in my stash.
I love these snowmen.
Now maybe I'll manage to get these quilted before Christmas 2014!
