Can you believe it’s November already? Where does the time go?
I finished this month’s First Friday Freebie this past Sunday, a couple of minutes before the lights went out. We were hit with a wicked nor’easter, the same storm that brought 12” and more of snow to the New England states. Thank goodness the moisture that we experienced was in the form of large amounts of driving rain and 65+ mph winds rather than snow. We lost power for 20 hours and that amount of time without heat or lights seemed like an eternity.
With the Holiday season just around the corner, I decided upon a seasonal design for this month’s FFF which I called Homespun Holidays.
The table topper, mini quilt or wall hanging finishes at approximately 22” square. It is stitched in the traditional redwork style and is hand quilted. It worked up relatively quickly and I think that it would make a great gift for a special friend or relative.
Here’s a closer look at the main design which features a festively adorned Canada goose perched on a quilt on top of a mantel, surrounded by a wreath of holly and berries.
I had forgotten about this Victorian toile fabric that I purchased a couple of years ago until I looked in my bin marked “Christmas fabric” and found it neatly folded with the rest of my seasonal fabrics . Doesn’t it make a perfect backing for this design?
