Holiday Homies

 At the beginning of the year, three of us decided to do a block of the month quilt designed by Annemarie Chaney called Hygge. 

I chose the Holiday Homies flannel line by Tula Pink.

Stephanie, Pam and I sewed together virtually for the first few months, and then as often happens, "life" got in the way. Toward the end of the year, because my fabric had a wintry, Christmas-y feel to it, I decided to forge ahead and complete the quilt. 

One of the blocks involved a series of skinny, appliqued knitting needles and I decided there was no way I was going to attempt that with flannel, so I switched those two blocks out for more of the tree blocks.

I didn't have anything in my stash for the backing so I ordered some "mammoth flannel" by Robert Kaufman. 

The quilt went together quite quickly. Darby was able to fit the quilting into her schedule at the beginning of December. I used black flannel for the binding. 

It has been gifted to our pastor and his family, and I hope they enjoy its coziness.

Just lovely, Cindy, especially knowing that you shared the making experience with friends - did you meet for Zoom sessions? - and that you gifted it to your pastor and family. This is a heart-warming, body-warming quilt, and the reasons behind it are special. That's just the best way, and best reasons for making a quilt. Well done!

So fabulous--it's that dark green that really makes the motifs stand out. Congratulations on a wonderful quilt, and a perfect gift for your pastor. And congratulations on another finish! (PS I'd swap out the knitting needles, too!)
