Holiday wishes book

Happy Christmas is July! A great way to beat the heat is sewing of course and that’s just what I’ve been doing. Sherri Falls from This & That has a new book out which features lots of fun project ideas and to help you get excited and creative, Fat Quarter Shop is having a blog tour which I’m super excited to be a part of.

I made the sweet mini quilt from the Holiday Wishes book called ‘Comfort And Joy’. Measuring only 16″x20″, it’s the perfect quick fix to those summertime blues:)

Knowing full well that the smaller your project is the more precise your work needs to be, I took my time. I cut it out one day, and the next I pieced it toghether. My suggestion is get yourself some Alphabitties. These cuties keep track of all the pieces for you. You don’t want to waste time remeasuring while you work.

It went together in a couple of hours and the instructions were easy to follow.I used Tasha Noel’s newest fabric line Pixie Noel. I cannot resist those adorable kissing bunnies💞

After Paige quilted it, I added the sweet crochet trim my mom made for me around the binding to add a little more cuteness to the quilt. It’s all in the details, right?

I’m going to enjoy my mini for the week, then it’s off to someone special who I think deserves some Christmas cheer…
