It's been three months since my last First Friday Freebie and much has been accomplished in my sewing studio during that time. I've managed to finish two Christmas quilts which I'm thrilled about...not to mention a few other projects as well.
While making the Christmas quilts, the inspiration for this month's FFF came about. You all know I love samplers, stitching, wool-on-cotton applique and piecing...and the more vintage looking and scrappier the better!
Do you remember this photo from two posts ago where I showed you our sitting room decorated for Christmas?
Look a little closer...
Did you happen to notice the quilt hanging on the wall going up the stairs?
That is this month's FFF and it's called, "Twas the Night Before Christmas"!
Here are a few close ups because the lighting was not the greatest when I took the photo.
My friend Alice custom quilted this one for me as well. Didn't she do another amazing job?
I think this little guy might just be my favorite FFF to date.
Thanks again, Alice for doing such an amazing job with very little notice and in a very short turn around time.

I'll leave you with this photo of Ollie and Frankie chilling by the fire early this morning. Aren't they just too much?
