#MakersWednesday: Nightmare Before Christmas mini quilt

Posted By on Sep 16, 2015 in Handmade Love and Inspiration

Happy #MakersWednesday, everyone! Lately I’ve been working through a variety of creative projects which I hope will help me move beyond the current stresses of day-to-day living. How about you?

This week I’m working on something for a swap recipient, and I have a feeling I’m going to really love it when I’m done, so I’m making two – one for her and one for me to keep! It’s a mini quilt inspired by The Nightmare Before Christmas. Here it is so far (well, here they are, side by side):

Right now I’m working on embroidering the phrase “Simply meant to be” on the top right area, and after that I’ll sandwich it and do some hand quilting with glow-in-the-dark thread. I’ve got some cute Halloween prints to use for the backing, and some fun black-and-whites to use for the binding. I’m really excited to have this finished project in time for Halloween!

What are you working on this week? Show us on social media and tag it #MakersWednesday!
