What’s Up Wednesday

I have one little quilt to show you today. Just one. Because all of the other projects I’m working on are for Christmas gifts.

Remember those cute little trees that finished at a whopping 2 inches? I made them into a little mini runner. It’s not perfect by any means, so it will just find a little spot somewhere in the midst of my Christmas decorating (if I ever get my decorating done!).

My initial plan was to put some red into this little project. However, I just couldn’t find the right fit; the red seemed to overwhelm those cute little trees! So I opted to keep it simple and stick with the green, and I’m happy with how it turned out. I can use this throughout the winter season and not feel like it’s a holiday quilt.

I did simple quilting with my walking foot. It shifted a bit more during the quilting process than I wanted, so ignore the puckers.

I can always add some red to it. My winter bird is a little too big, though! The finished size of the quilt is 8″ x 15-1/2″.

This quilt is made from my stash, so the backing is just a piece of polka dot green that was close enough. I used the scraps of the green fabric used on the top for the binding.

And that’s some of what I’ve been working on this week. I have been continuing to clean up my quilting space, and I’m surprised at how much I’m getting accomplished.

One goal for today is to finish and hang a small design wall in my space. I have all the things needed, so I’ll try to show you what I’ve done on Friday.

My other goals for the day are to clean through one more cabinet and get started with Christmas decorations.

I’m linking up with Quilt Fabrication and Sew Fresh Quilts today.

Happy stitching!

  1. I love how your tree project came together! I think the backing is just perfect for it. When you get your quilting space cleaned up-I have a whole messy room that needs help;-)

  2. Those little trees are so cute! I might have to make some. Where did you find the pattern or did you make it up? You’ve made a lovely mini table runner and I’m with you any red would have overpowered it. But I think the winter bird is perfect..

  3. That is adorable! I don’t think the bird is too big. You will be able to use this even into spring with the pretty greens you chose. Green is my favorite color so this is really appealing to me. So cute!
