Mini Quilt Monday :: Feeling Festive


I know it's Cyber Monday but I'm planning on doing more sewing than shopping today and I have a couple little mini quilts that are perfect for the season if you're feeling like a little holiday sewing too. We got a little festive over the weekend at the prompting of one VERY excited-for-the-season 5 year old. She also had an opinion about exactly what needed to go where this year which was...fun ;-)


I made these last year using the Sugar Plum Forest Mini Quilts pattern from Quilts by Emily - you can find this pattern in her Craftsy store right here or in her Etsy shop here.


Both of these are perfect for scraps and I'm thinking about making one in greens and grays to keep up in January too - I always like to switch to something wintery after the holidays and I think this might work perfectly. I also like to get a little more contrast between the trees and the background next time. I added a little hand stitching around the star to get it to stand out a bit more. 
This one finishes at about 12"x16".


This is the smaller of the two patterns included and finishes at around 9"x14" - super quick to whip up and such a sweet decoration.

Hope you have a good week, whether shopping or sewing!
