Description

I've finished the December mini for my daughter, a college student. Just a little something hand made to brighten up her dorm room. I found this pattern in a quilt magazine (sorry, I don't recall which one) and it went together very quickly. It's a great pattern to showcase a fabric in the center. I chose ornaments because I give each of the kids an ornament or two every year for Christmas that represents something from the year (like an Eiffel tower ornament the year we went to France).

This is the first time I've put binding on something that didn't have square corners. It wasn't really any different than square corners. I think it was harder to get the shape of the pieces on the back for hanging since they weren't square

I used a fun dog fabric on the back and shadow quilting. Scout is "helping" me again. It's especially useful when she rests her head on my arm as I'm trying to sew/quilt 

Aug 17, 2015 - no changes made, I'm just updating this to mark it as "complete"

I think you have the most adorable helper and I love this mini. The times I have done binding on angles have never been as hard as I thought they would be either...thank God;-)

HawkFan

True Thanks Mary. I don't know about curved binding though - not sure when I'll be ready to give that a try

Florence

Your daughter must be glad to have a little bit of your work in her dorm room ! ( and perhaps few hair of Scout ;) !)

HawkFan

Florence She does love it that I make her these. Yes, we are learning to live with the Scout hairs all over smile

HawkFan , both my little dogs 'help' me when I sew and quilt also. Cute addition for her dorm room.
