Christmas mini quilt and coaster


 Blissful happy sewing................this mini quilt is so fun to make....
I needed a Christmas mini in the spot where I had a Halloween mini hanging!...

sewing on a muslin foundation and no exact measuring of pieces....
finger pressing after each strip....such a delightful sewing project!
 Photos of the front and back before quilting...Laurel Burch fabrics.............
 photo of when it was in progress........
 Coaster where I quilted front and back separately....
 the back was a charm square quilted....separate batting on each piece...

photo before I put the top right sides together and stitched and then trimmed the excess...

So I had two finishes this week (small ones).....a nice break from some of my other larger projects

Some of the other projects I am working on....Allietare (Quiltvile............Another Part of Me (FB Gudrun's Quilt Crew)......Little Wishes (Pat Sloan).....Sloanie swap blocks......

Linking to crazy mom quilts finish it up Friday...
and Connie at Freemotion by the River...Linky Tuesday...

Smiles and hugs....Caryl

    1. Thanks Sarah...yes 2 layers of batting. I usually quilt after putting both layers together. On this one I quilted each one separately and then joined them which works good when you want to cover the ends of the stitching.
