A Scrappy Happy Holidays Mystery Sew Along - Month 11

Well, it's finally here. The last installment of "A Scrappy Happy Holidays Mystery Sew Along". I'm so happy to share my flannel quilt with the bonus borders.

A Scrappy Happy Holidays Flannel Quilt Designed, Pieced & Quilted by Thistle Thicket Studio. www.thistlethicketstudio.com

The quilt, with the bonus borders, finishes at 72" square - the perfect size to cuddle up this winter and why I wanted to make one out of flannel. Because this one is to wrap up in, I won't be adding any embellishments. I haven't added the stocking label yet either, as I think I'm going to hand embroidery the label information.

My tip for the bonus border is to be sure to select a medium value for the 'underneath' side of the ribbon and a dark value for the 'front' side of the ribbon - that's what creates the ribbon effect.

I hope everyone who joined me on this scrappy happy journey enjoyed the sew along. I know I did. I can't wait to see all of your quilts so be sure to share them on Facebook and Instagram and tag me @thistlethicketstudio!

Have A Scrappy Happy Day!

  1. Thank you so much for sharing this quilt and your talent with us! I am wayyyy behind on it, but hey, next year's holiday is still 12 months away! This was my first "event" with your website, but I am keeping it on my list to check each month to see your future adventures. Congrats on your son's wedding (and the cute quilt you made them).
