O Come All Ye Faithful

After a wonderful Christmas with my family yesterday, it felt good to get spend some time in my studio today.

Last week I bought some embroidery designs from Embroidery Library. My birthday is at the end of the month and Embroidery Library gives a discount to use at any time during your birthday month. I used mine last week. One of the designs I bought was this cute little Christmas Redwork.

Instead of stabilizer, I used a fusible batting on the back of my fabric and then embroidered the design. Today I chose a border fabric and used the quilt as you go method to make a mini quilt out of it.

It finishes at 10" x 10.5". I am so pleased with the outcome. It was a great quick little project.

My favourite part is the little nativity scene.

I bought 2 other little Christmas Redwork designs and am looking forward to using them too...

This one looks great on my little stand.

I hope you are all enjoying some time with loved ones this Holiday season!

I am hoping to be back soon with a post on more Christmas gifts and another with a finished quilt!
