a new advent calendar

Last year I bought this adorable fabric panel from a little fabric shop in Cold Lake, AB. I backed it with the striped fabric you see as the binding. You were supposed to sew it inside out and then turn it but I much preferred to sew it the traditional quilt way. This was also my second time free motion quilting and I am quite pleased with how it turned out. I wasn't as scared as I was my first time!

I just need to buy some little green buttons to sew onto each snowman. On each day of December I can then move a little star (that I already made) onto each new snowman with the corresponding date. So cute!


  1. Good work! Your little quilted mat looks nice on your bookshelf too.


thank you so much for leaving me a little note! i appreciate each and every comment :)
