Handmade Holidays: Christmas Tree Mini Quilt


I started handmade holidays really early this year.  I always think that I have plenty of time whenever I start each year... and each year I'm always rushing at the end (or heaven forbid - give store-bought presents!)

So in an effort to keep the holidays handmade this year I whipped up this little quilt this past week:


OK... so I didn't exactly "whip" it up.  It took 10 hours to put this baby together!

Here are some stats for the quilty nerds out there:
- measurements: 36" inches and 38" tall
- 10 hours to make
- I used fabric from a bag of vintage Christmas scraps that I picked up at the Thrift store for $3.99
- the quilt is backed with Lane's old bedroom curtains
- I used the left over sequins from making my mermaid Halloween costume and trimmed the tree ornaments and one of the borders with it

I used a pattern that was in one of my very favourite craft books: Scrap Basket Crafts



Here are some more pictures.





Now who to give this one to?

I think I'm going to make a few more of these because I have a feeling they will be in demand this season!
