Christmas Heart Quilt – Done

Good Thursday morning!  Nice 4″ of rain this go round!  We will enjoy the beautiful green grass and trees while we have them.  Hopefully we are not heading for a drought.

I finished the binding on my 2003 Christmas Heart Quilt.  I made this quilt in 2003 and it was my first applique quilt!  So I can now add one more complete to my OMG for March – Still 2 more days to complete a few more things!

The pictures are not the best and it is difficult to really make out the back of the fabric.  It is a very small plaid Christmas fabric that has black, green and reds.  I did the binding in the same fabric.  I am pleased with it.  I did not hand sew the binding as I usually do, I am trying to get better with machine binding to save time.  If it is not a quilt for a Show or a gift – it will be machined!  Although it took me 2 hours to do it, better than 8 hours of hand work.

This is a close up of the meandering with circles that I did when I quilted it.

The fabric used in this quilt is not the type of fabric I use now.  But I was a beginner and did not know that fabric had changed so much – This is a Hobby Lobby fabric quilt, and I think a few good fabrics.  It is a quilt to keep because it was my first!

Today I am going to quilt Regatta!  The long arm is loaded and ready to go!  Now to get the pattern in my brain and it will be done!  Things are looking up!  Have a great day!

  1. What a good feeling to get that quilt finished, I’m sure! I feel the same way about finishing my bindings. Doing it by machine is probably stronger too. Good luck with your machine quilting today!


  2. Hi Nanette,
    I love this heart quilt! So nice and what a nice claim to fame for your first one. Sending you good quilting vibes for Regatta. No troubles today – only smooth quilting! Happy Thursday! ~smile~ Roseanne


    1. Thank you, I did not know what I was even doing when I made it – thought the different fabrics looked horrible, but now a few years of quilting under my belt it looks good to me! I now have my personal representative from Caremark – no more dealing with idoits! And my sanity is alive and well!
