It’s almost that time of year! I’m getting a much earlier start than usual because I needed a few holiday props for family photos last weekend. I made a chalkboard sign…
And started an advent calender (that I still have to finish)…
I also started a quilt using lots of red from my stash and Camille Roskelley’s new Puddle Jumping pattern. (She also has an adorable mini version that I’m going to make with my scraps)
(berry baskets from World Market)
I finished the quilt top in just a couple of days but sadly I didn’t have it ready to use in our photos. Next year for sure.
I have a really nice red and white print I was planning to use for the backing, but I saw this flannel at JoAnn’s today and I could not resist.
Snuggle Flannel Fabric-Farm Dog
It’s such a cute print and at only $2.98 a yard how could I not take it home? That’s just over $14 for a quilt backing. What?! Unheard of. I almost want to go back and get enough to make us all matching PJ pants. But maybe that’s too much of a good thing. We’d be camouflaged in our Christmas quilt.
Basting is happening tonight and I am so excited to quilt this. Not sure what quilting design to use, though. Any thoughts?
