Hanging Around...

Like much of the midwest {maybe even the country?} I've been snowed in this week. Seemed like the perfect opportunity to go to my want-to-make-quilts list and have some fun.

I've been wanting to make another of this pattern from Simply Modern Christmas. I was a lucky girl and won some Charlie Harper fabric on Instagram from Westwood Acres before Christmas. The little cardinals were the perfect size to fussy cut and place randomly in my wreath made from Botanics.


I just love this little guy peeking out from the design!


Hope you're staying warm and making the best of your inside time!!

  10. Very cute! I bought your book (love it!) intending to make the tree skirt, but when I saw the wreath, it had to be first. Mine is in scrappy greens.
