I can't believe there are only 9 more weekends until Christmas! Fortunately, this past one was put to good use and I had some adorable inspiration with me while I worked in my studio, which you can oggle down below : ) Here's a taste of my weekend:
Used the new Jelly Roll Jam shortcut pattern from Fat Quarter Shop and pieced this "camping quilt" from S'more Love by Eric & Julie Comstock. The pattern goes together very quickly. I'm going to add some wider strips of the line's signature fabric at the top and bottom to lengthen it to a throw quilt that's for my parents to use in their new RV.
Finished my Holiday Sparkle Advent Calendar by Nina Seven - this will be so cute to fill with little notes and gifts come December! I ended up raw edge appliqueing the pockets on so it looks slightly different than the mock up I saw at the Pine Tree Quilt Guild show in July, but it went together faster.
And I made the two tutus below for the Oh Juniper dolls my daughters are getting for Christmas from Santa. My friend and fellow milspouse, Crystal Clark, makes these gorgeous Waldorf inspired dolls - I am so excited for my girls to finally have some of her creations! Plus, they were cheery company while I worked... though they've been hidden back out of sight for the near future!
This "Mrs. Santa" still has coats, bathrobes, a clothing rack and quilts to make for the new babies, but I cheated over the weekend and ordered a few extra outfits from Molly's Playground instead of adding those to my seemingly endless "to make" list ; ) I'll post pics of the dolls' completed wardrobes and clothing storage once it's all complete.
So how about you? What are you busy getting done in time for the holidays? Have you managed to pace yourself for months or are you in a sprint to the finish line like I am?
