I finally finished up my cookie and candy Christmas quilt. This one is flannel and really heavy and cozy. The sweets are all wool. This was a pattern I got from Thimblecreek. You can find it here.
I've made three big flannel quilts in the past couple of years and I'm going to try to resist them for a while now. They really are a big pain to wrestle with and quilt. This one is pretty heavily quilted, with feathers in the green sections. I'm sure it would have been fine with a lot less. I'm looking forward to working with nice thin cottons again.
Wasabi Girl told me that I finished this one "fast." "I saw that up on your design wall just a few months ago." That doesn't seem fast to me. It felt like this one took forever.
Finishing this a good start for my holiday crafting season. This week I'm going to be deciding on some ornaments to stitch up for gifts. I think I might be able to finish one more quilt and make a few small gifts.
I can't believe I have friends who have already finished their Christmas shopping. I'm still trying to start! I'm not much of a Black Friday shopper any more. Too much craziness for me. I'd rather eat leftovers and sew.
