FNwF

Was looking forward to doing lots of stitching on Friday night but then an invitation came in to go out for dinner...... who am I to say no!  Had a lovely Turkish feast with friends and then came home to relax and fit a little stitching in and finish my quilt.

This certainly was the smallest quilt I will ever do and only measures about 3" x 5", looks a funny shape but there's a reason........

3" x 5" Quilt

First I embroidered all the features of each little square while they were still one big piece of felt.

Then I cut out each little individual coloured square and then stitched them onto the backing felt.  It was a job but luckily they all went together snuggly.

Here's the finished quilt on Santa's lap.
All Snug on Santa's lap


My stocking is almost finished, just the backing to go on and the name embroidered.  I have another one waiting in the wings and hopefully I'll finish that before Christmas too.

Thanks to Cheryll at Gone Stitching for hosting another FNwF -  good to see so many lovely projects.
