I told you in February that I would have a Christmas quilt to snuggle under this Christmas. Finished up, with little time to spare, my Peppermint Twist quilt:
Quilted with an all over meander stitch….
It has a fun pieced “snowflake” back:
Fussy cut cornerstones…
A favorite Christmas ornament print as a top and bottom border, and green dot binding to finish it up.
So what is the Quilter’s “Hole in One”? Well, for the first (and possibly last) time, I made binding, sewed it on, and when I got around to the last side of the quilt I thought I was going to be just a hair short on binding. Instead, I continued to sew, and when I stopped to join the two ends of binding, I could scarcely believe my eyes. I had the exact length of binding I needed for this quilt, I didn’t trim so much as an 1/8th of an inch! That has never happened before. And somehow, I don’t see it even happening again….
