So here is my first finished quilt of the year! I worked on hand stitching the binding this weekend and it went pretty quick since it was such a small project. I have a bunch of Hallmark Christmas movies recorded. I didn't get through all of them before Christmas, so I watched The Christmas Box while I worked on the binding.
Here is the quilt all finished. I hung it on the wall just to take a picture and then put it away for later this year. I will probably forget about it and when I decorate for Christmas in eleven months it will be like a surprise!
I decided to join Judy's stashbusting for 2009. It goes well with my goals for the year and it will help me be accountable. Plus, I love the idea of seeing how many yards of fabric I bust every week. So here are my numbers for this week...
Fabric Added this Week: 2.75 yards
Fabric Added Year to Date: 2.75 yards
Fabric Used this Week: 2 yards
Fabric Used Year to Date: 2 yards
I know, totally unimpressive. But I feel good because I finished my little Christmas quilt. I also started a leaders and enders project making nine patches. I was so proud of myself that I could say that I didn't buy any fabric but then my husband reminded me that I ordered some charm packs online for some quilts that I am going to make soon as Christmas presents for this year. I am pretty determined to start early making presents and avoid the stress that comes every year leading up to Christmas.
