I am so glad that Julie is doing this great Christmas Once a Month blog-along!
I have been hearing Christmas music for several days now, since the weather has been so pleasant and thoroughly enjoying it! The last few Christmases it’s been really hot and muggy (Miami, FL) so I’ll take this “in the 70’s” winterish weather and pretend it’s Christmas already! I only wish there were more hours in the day and less obligations to do Christmas Crafts all day long!
Today I made the smallest quilt ever!!
It’s 2″ x 6″ and doubles as an ornament or hang it on a knob.
Here’s how to do it:
Cut 3- 2 1/2 inch squares (front) sew together.
Cut 3- 3 1/2 inch squares (back) sew together.
Out of scraps cut 2 inch letters and use webbing to iron one letter on each square.
Make a (finger) sandwich and quilt as desired, no basting necessary!
Trim excess batting and backing.
Bind. (Mine was original 2 1/2 inch binding, but it was too large, so you can trim yours.)
When attaching binding to sandwich, also include ribbon for hanging and it’ll fold over when you do the final stitching. See below.
I think I’m going to make a collection of quilted ornaments this year!
