10 more days till Christmas! (Friday Foto Fun #10)
Is it too late to finally put decorations out around the house? Our house is decoration-less at the moment and it feels more like January...cold and not very festive! I feel like I'm in denial that Christmas is coming. I haven't really worked on any of my Christmas-y projects this fall except the I Wish You a Merry QAL quilt. Maybe next year right?! Anyways...I actually have a finish to share today! Friday Foto Fun that is actually a finish this week! I purchased the Delightful Desert Quilt pattern from Elizabeth Hartman for this specific block. Let me introduce you to Cotton Tail!
I LOVE bunnies so much, and I just had to make him. The bunny is actually made up of fabric that has bunnies on it, maybe that was a bit overkill but it's so adorable!
Keeping with the bunny theme, I made the mug rug top for my Starbucks Mug Rug swap. The pattern is by Quiet Play and it's completely paper pieced. I reduced the size of the pattern to 66% to get the finish about 8" square. I also decided while making this block, I really dislike tiny paper piecing! Like no fun whatsoever which is a bummer because the finished product is so cute! I used the same method as my tutorial to make this block.
I almost forgot that I finished the Kefka quilt too! Here's my hubby streaming on Twitch with the quilt behind him!
He changes up the quilt to match the game he's streaming (if I've made him one!). If you watch Twitch or know anyone who does, you should follow my husband at https://www.twitch.tv/the_kov.
One last little tidbit I'd like to share today... there will be an announcement on Tuesday about a new QAL that I'll be participating/hosting/designing in starting in the new year! I can't wait to share this project with you. It's going to be a scrap buster for sure!
Next Friday, I'll be hosting Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday! So be sure to check back, link up and admire all the pretty finishes!
