Another donation quilt top

Before my hubby spent time in the hospital I ordered 2 packs of 5" squares, then while killing time on the internet when he was in the hospital I saw a pattern  that looked interesting and was easy to remember. The fabric was waiting for me when we got back home and I've been slipping into the studio when possible and now have the top done. It will be a donation quilt.

While trying to get into a festive mood, I dug into the back of my closet and pulled out a shirt that I decorated over 20 years ago. It was fun to get it out and wear it again.

The buttons were from my Mom's and Mother in Laws button boxes, all glued down with glitter paint.

Daily Stitching
My tree is slowly gaining branches. I'm finding that I'm having some trouble working on this one and I think it's because I sketched it out first so I have a preconceived idea of what it will look like. Normally I sit down and stitch with no definite plan and I feel very comfortable doing that. 

This one won't be finished this year, it will be continued into the new year. It's about time for me to decide if I want to start another stitching project for the new year or just keep going with one. Maybe I'll know by next the post.

Happy Holidays!

I'll be linking up with"Off the Wall Friday" and "Slow Sunday Stitching"


  1. Your donation quilt is gorgeous! Love that orange. What a fun way to use buttons of the past. LOVE it!

  2. The donation quilt is brimming with loveliness. How fun is that sweater. Love that you rummaged around in your mom's and MIL's button boxes. The tree is beautiful and as always your Solarfast stitching is fabulous.
