A Scrappy Happy Holidays Mystery Sew Along - Month 10 Reveal!

I'm so excited to share my finished ''A Scrappy Happy Holidays Mystery Sew Along" quilts with you today! So excited, in fact, that I'm posting a few days earlier than normal, but I just couldn't wait any longer!

Here is the first quilt, without the added embellishments. I tried taking this photo outside and I was losing light quickly but it was so calm outside - which is rare - that I had to try a few shots. Unfortunately, the lighting isn't the greatest. This quilt measures 54" x 54".

And here is the back. I used one length of fabric for the backing (1 2/3 yards), cut down the center, then added leftover strips of scraps to make the backing wide enough. Oh, and see that cute stocking block? That's the label! It's just a sneak peak for a bonus pattern you'll get next month!

Since I lost daylight, I moved inside to take photos of my second quilt. The lighting wasn't much better. This quilt has a few embellishments on it - buttons, bows & a gift tag!

I selected a few vintage buttons from my button jars to add as ornaments on the "Oh 'Lil Christmas Tree" block.

And grosgrain ribbon bows at the top of the "Baubles" block.

A Scrappy Happy Holidays Gift Tag Designed By Thistle Thicket Studios. www.thistlethicketstudio.com
Then how cute is this? A gift tag for one of the packages on the "Gifts of Joy" block! This is a bonus pattern this month in the mystery sew along. (Sorry, it's too late to join the mystery sew along as we're almost finished.)

I truly had a wonderful time sharing my designs for this quilt over the past few months and I hope all those who joined in had a wonderful time too! As we wrap up our 'scrappy happy holiday' year, don't forget there are a couple of extra bonuses coming next month - bonus borders to make the quilt larger (72" x 72") and the bonus label block. I'll share my finished flannel version with the bonus borders next month too! 

Have a Scrappy Happy Day!
