Description

I am happy to have two wonderful women friends in my life who share my love of quilting - Cathie (+quilt455 ) and Conni (+conniharns ). We get together several times a year to sew together...and we also work together which makes it even more fun! This year I decided to make them each a mini Christmas quilt - something that would brighten up their homes over the holidays.

I modified a pattern by Sheri McConnell ... making my quilts square instead of a table runner. The quilts use 2.5" squares to make scrappy churn dash blocks.

For Conni, I chose fabrics by Kate Spain. For Cathie, I used a mix of fabrics by Basic Grey, French General and Sweetwater. I had two adorable Christmas labels which I got from Sweetwater...and these went on the backs (which are pieced).

The quilts measure approximately 18" square.

So sweet! Love the pieced backs with labels too.

What great mini quilts!! Love them and love you all sew together:-). But I do not think giving them these makes it any safer for your things when they visit;-)

I just love mine and think I will keep it out for all the winter months. It looks so pretty on my round end table in the livingroom right by my rocking chair. Thank you Miss Wendy.
