A finish


In visiting blogs I discovered the Temecula Quilt Co and this cute little mini quilt "The 12 days Of Christmas" I didn't get started until after all the patterns had been given out but I knew I would have to make it as I fell in love with it right away . I did not have the kit that was being sold to make the quilt so went to my stash and found these scraps left over from my Louisa quilt and do you know I can hardly see that anything has been taken out of that container .So here is my version of the 12 Days of Christmas ,
 Just in case you don't remember the Louisa quilt , here it is again, I love this quilt  it reminds me of days gone past .
 This was hand quilted by the Holy Name Quilters of which I am one of and now I wish I would have taken the time to hand quilt the mini quilt but alas I did not .I may just make another , after all I need to use up those scraps ;-) . Hope you are having a great Sunday , it has been snowing all day but not making much but it is might cold out there . Thanks for stopping by .
hugs Sheila

  12. Love the quilts! Hand quilting always looks so amazing to me, unless it's my own sometimes wandering, uneven stiches. ;) Stay warm Sheila!
