Tree Huggers

Cornbread and Beans Weblog 2014 041

It’s been the winter of tree quilts here at my house for the week before Christmas.

It all started when I had a break in Christmas gift making and decided to make my version of Crazy Mom Quilts tree quilt for …gasp…MYSELF!! I know who makes a quilt for themselves at Christmas time? But I was in desperate need of a quilt for the couch that only I could use.  People with teenaged kids will understand that sometimes you want a quilt that doesn’t smell like teenaged feet, and without drips of food on it.

I backed it with the softest, squishiest, loviest cuddle fabric, layered it with the highest, fluffiest batting,  and quilted it with the fewest of lines to make it the darned most comfy quilt I’ve ever made!

Too comfy!! So comfy, in fact,  there was a revolt in my house, and a demand for a most comfy quilt for said teenaged children.

Hence began my four day sewing rampage to make Christmas tree quilt presents for my littles. They were just in time for Christmas Eve gifting to compliment new jammies and slippers.

My eyes were seriously crossing putting in the last binding stitches. But oh so worth it!   My quilt, I’m happy to say, is smell free, and so far no food spills!
