Countdown to Christmas Advent Calendar

by Julie Hirt

Yikes!  I almost didn’t get this made in time.  Finished it up this weekend and I’ll be delivering it to my niece and nephews this evening.

The pockets are stuffed with little goodies.  I used a Riley Blake charm pack for the pockets and some bright solids for the interior.

I tried something different for the quilting by using different colors of threads.  It’s okay, not sure I would it would be worth it on a printed fabric.

Since I waited so long to finish this up I purchased backing and binding fabric at Joann’s.  It goes pretty well with the Riley Blake fabrics.

Machine binded for the first time (I always hand sew it on the back) and it’s pretty terrible. ha!  Definitely need to practice.

Janice at Better of Thread hosted a Quilt-Along.  I’m just sorry I didn’t get mine finished in time for the party!
