On the first day of Christmas, a seamstress made for me . . . No, really, I’m not going to sing a new version of the twelve days of Christmas, but I do have twelve handmade projects that I’d like to share between now and Christmas Eve! (Most of them are done already, but I do have few projects that have made it to the last minute scramble)
First up is this simple quilt for my youngest niece. She is a big fan of anything giraffe related, and I think she’ll love these!
Because I didn’t have a lot of time to put this together, I pieced the quilt top together from solid 10″ blocks, alternating the four block fabrics. Then I put a quick border around it, backed it with minky, quilted it in diagonal lines and machine-bound it. The final quilt is about 50″x60″.
I love these minky-backed, no-batting quilts for little ones because they’re warm and soft, but they don’t take up a lot of storage space in your closet when you store them or in a bag when you travel.
