It took me nearly 3 years to finish this mini quilt. I had ran to the store and get extra fabric for the sides and binding. It is totally worth the trip and it turns out lovely! Finally, the first Christmas quilt is completed! I am loving the gold in the backing, sadly I have no more this print in the stashes. I used fat quarters for this project. It is the feeling about being productive and I am loving it! The free motion quilting has improved on this quilt! I am thankful for many great tutorial out there. I will come back link a couple this week.
