christmas wishes quilt specs

Here’s the stitchettes quilt again. I wanted to post some more pics and details for anyone interested. The quilt is lap quilt size, good for snuggling under or draping across the bottom of a bed. The finished measurements are 63" wide x 60" tall. So that breaks down to eight 8" x 8" squares for the embroideries across bottom. Above that are 64" (I ordered 2 yards and trimmed the end to fit) of 44" wide fabric. Then there’s a 4" strip across the top and 8" strip across the bottom.

The fabrics are… white with bells is candyland christmas by moda seems like it’s sold out from fat quarter shop where I bought it, same with the red backing fabric from the same collection. They still have the blue which is Minny Muu Snowman.

For the quilting I dropped by feed dogs, put on my darning foot and did big bubble shapes over the non-embroidery sections. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. I always wish my quilting looked neater but since I’m cramming it through my home sewing machine I’m just happy it works at all.

    Oh, it’s beautiful! And quite different from most of the quilts I’ve been seeing lately. This gives me hope for my own last-minute-quick-make-something-homey quilting ideas for Christmas! Thanks ever so much for sharing :)

    I am so impressed by your quilting using your sewing machine. I did the lap quilt from bend the rules and that was just straight lines and I got quite cranky. Lovely embroidery too!
