I have been wanting to make an Advent Calendar for some time. I found a great tutorial way back in July, ordered some fabric, then procrastinated. Last week with the 1st December looming I made a start, and finished it last night just in time for Advent.
It’s a small quilt with pockets sewn in. The fabrics are from a line called “Have a Sheri Berry Holiday”. I used two charm packs and some yardage.
There are little pockets in the top corners on the back for a hanging rod to slip into. I machine stitched the binding down since I figure that no-one is going to see the back.
The sashing is free motion quilted. I still need to get better at doing this. I reckon that I quilted it to within an inch of its life – the quilting lines could have been much further apart. Machine applique also isn’t my forte. Anyway, the girls love it!
