Merry Christmas! (+ a little sneak peek)
I wish all my fellow quilting bloggers a Merry Christmas, and I hope you have a great time together with your family during this Holiday Season!
The last few days I have been busy quilting my Modern Maple quilt; I have to finish it by the end of the year. Yesterday I started to put the binding on, and this will be a nice hand-stitching job during the Christmas days.
Here is a sneak peak of the quilt how it looks in the start of the binding process. I bought a very nice striped fabric at Hancock's a couple of years ago, and that is perfect as the binding on this multi-colored maple quilt.
I quilted it with a quite dense woodgrain design in a parchment color cotton thread, and the backing fabric is the Britten Nummer fabric from IKEA.
When I am completely done with the quilt, I will take it out for a photo shoot in the snow.
Once again: Merry Christmas from a picture-perfect snow covered landscape.
