Love Blanket For Christmas

This cute “love Blanket” was started way back at the beginning of this year.  I know, I know what happen to finishing it?   Why did it take so long? Trust me I have asked myself these questions many times.  When rearranging my sewing area I looked at it along with all my other unfinished projects and thought “I should finish this. So, I did! I pulled it out this last week went to work finishing it. Each day I did a little on it. One day Pinned the edging on one side then sewed it then the next day I pinned the other side and started hand stitching the edge for a nice finishing touch. Hand stitching it took me 3 days. All the hand stitching means that the quilt is a true “Love Blanket”, because it is full of my love.  Just a little of my corniness there!  It will make for the perfect Christmas gift for my niece. I imagine her, mommy and daddy (my brother) spending many hours snuggling with it as they read together.  The truth is I started this quilt for my niece before she was even born. I won't be tell how old she is now...she might be 9 or 10 months old now! 

Opps, wonder if my sister in-law reads my blog. Maybe I should have waited until after Christmas to share this.  Hope they don’t see this post! Gotta share, I am so excited that I finished it.  

Do you have an unfinished project haunting you? 


  1. I have several unfinished projects haunting me. I need to get motivated like you and just get to work.

  2. So cute!
    I just dug out some unfinished stitchin' projects...but they'll have to wait until after Christmas! AND I started on another project that I've been wanting to do for years!
    I'll have to remember that you know how to finish quilts...I might need you to teach me! :)

  3. *By "finish quilts" I mean BIND quilts, ha ha!
    I already know how to start a quilt and finish it...later :)

    1. I would love to help you! Keep me posted. I am not expert, but I do have access to one of the best quilters in the United States. We do a quilt night once a month. It would be so fun if you could come.


Goodness, you just made my day a little sweeter. Thanks Bunches!
