WIP Wednesday - Have a Jolly Little Christmas

Back in January 2017, I started the Have a Jolly Little Christmas QAL hosted by Lorna @ Sew Fresh Quilts.  For some reason, I only completed three blocks. 

All the blocks are 12.5 inches, and the first one was Christmas Stockings.

Winter Mittens was the second block.

And then Christmas Bow.

I had the pieces cut for the Poinsettia block, but I didn't get around to sewing it until this New Year's Eve.

I decided to add some sashing and to piece the four blocks into a mini quilt - about 26 inches square.  So although I didn't finish the QAL, I can say that I participated and made something.  I just need to decide on a quilting plan so I can hopefully finish this in January.

Lorna created some fabulous blocks, and the tutorials are still on her blog.  If you're looking for a fun Christmas project, I'd recommend that you head to her blog.

  1. What a sweet mini quilt. It seems like that's the best solution to the blocks that have been hanging around (how can 2017 be 2 years ago??).

  2. Love your mini quilt! Using the blocks you already had done was a great way to get a UFO done.

  3. These blocks are beautifully would be a shame to let them languish any longer. Will make a lovely little quilt. Happy Stitching in 2019.

  4. Looks great, even if it is a modified version. Sometimes, it just happens.

  5. You know, maybe you don't need a big Christmas quilt when a cute mini like this one can be made! Lovely, lovely. Can't wait to see it quilted. Thanks for sharing on Wednesday Wait Loxx.
