New Quilt/ New Class 1...check!

Stained glass quilt number 1....finished (kinda)!

I still need to stitch down all the pieces, but it's pretty much done!

1) Stitch down the pieces (maybe even a purple metallic for the wings!)

2) batting and backing (not hard)

3) binding (ugh)

4) hanging sleeve (never attempted) yeah, kinda done!

Tonight my Mom and I start New Quilt/New Class 2...

It's the Santa Baby pattern....but I've renamed it.
That's a boring name (sorry designer)
It shall now be referred to as: Secret Santa, because it looks like Santa is hiding behind the trees.
Mine isn't going to look like this one. I'm using the same Tidings fabric that I used in my log cabin quilt, so there'll be a lot more greens, blues, golds, and the like!
I'm loving it already!

Gorgeous!! I've always wanted to learn how to quilt! I actually signed up for a class once, bought quilting squares, needles, scissors, etc...and then I never went. I bet the Santa one will be adorable!

Just stopping by and visiting from The RHOK! Hope you're having a great day!♥

The dragonflies are beautiful and I agree, a purple metallic thread would be perfect.

As for the Secret Santas, that looks absolutely wonderful, I love it. What size is it going to be?

My Mom is a quilter and I am so in awe of the patience it takes to do this craft. Your stained glass quilt is gorgeous and I like the name Secret Santa better for that design, too.
