I had to join the Fabric Shack mini quilt swap!
My partner was @njcrabtree (Natalie Crabtree)
I selected this Layer Cake "Jingle" by Kate Spain
I also luv the book "Modern Holiday" by Amanda Murphy

It didn't take long to find the perfect pattern...
"Holiday Forest"

Of course I like to change the pattern up a little bit.
so instead of solid trees
I made scrappy trees!

The white background is looking great...kind of a swirly look
I also decided not to put trunks on the trees.

Just a small border and the top is done!

I had some left over charm squares for the backing.

Here's the back...

 And the front with a few little extras...
cause you know folks like extras!

I really wanted to keep this one...
but Santa off it went!

And what did I receive?

Amanda Everest @itsthethereelmandy lives in Las Vegas 
was my partner and she made me this cute mini using 
Tasha Noel's
"Pixie Noel" Fabrics.

Merry Christmas my friends and thanks
for hanging around and reading my blog this year!
It's sew appreciated. 

I will see you on the other side of the New Year!


  1. I enjoyed seeing how you customized the Holiday Forest with scrappy fabrics and no trunks - a great swap project.

  2. These are both adorable! Merry Christmas Kathy!

  3. I like your trees mini, as I'm sure you knew I would. I just might have to make one for myself.
