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….
Can you hear me clapping and cheering from here? It's fabulous, congratulations on a great finish.
Wow, that *IS* a hole in one! Love the piecing… and yay for a Christmas Quilt!~
hole in one is right! my goodness, that has never happened to me… I'm done binding and then been short a few inches and out of that fabric!! which totally stinks!!
Now I safe guard myself, if I think it's a squeaker I won't do it and pick another fabric
Congratulations on eeking out the binding. Don't you LOVE when that happens?
I really like your top and bottom borders. They look really good. I like the way it isn't all the way around.
It's a striking quilt! What a neat thing to happen. A hole in one!? Time to buy a lottery ticket.
Beautiful, looks warm and cozy!
Your quilt is just wonderful. Glad you finished it in time. Merry Christmas!
Your quilt is amazing! Wow! And your story on the binding is great. And here, I was feeling good to have no seams fall on the corners of my last quilt. LOL.
