Merry Christmas!

It's beginning to look and smell like Christmas around our house......
Twinkle lights, carols, and baking my family favorites.

AND

Cranberry-White Chocolate Chip Cookies
And  .....


On top of all that decorating and baking I managed to get
 a little sewing time in.


My first attempt at a 2 fabric/color binding.
On the printed side of my flannel I attached a solid pink
and on the solid pink side it is printed.
Did that make sense?
I used these instructions but cut my binding strips 1/4" larger
to allow for the bulky flannel. 
It definitely takes a bit longer to prepare the binding
 but I love the effect on the quilt.
This is actually two pieces of flannel quilted and bound for a
Christmas present.
I can't wait to use this technique again.....
give it a try.


Here's a wool and cotton customer quilt I finished this week.
BEAUTIFUL!

The pattern is "Merry Christmas"
by Kathy Campbell of
Heart 2 Heart


Look at all the details!


WOW!


APPLE BUTTER HOUSE "Country Christmas"
was fabulous this year.
Caroline has such creative ideas.
It was magical.

Hope this finds you healthy and happy.
And not toooo stressed this holiday season.
