I started this throw as a Christmas tree-pants sew-along from Sew,Mama,Sew (link here) in October 2011. But I quickly decided that I couldn’t bear to slice it through the middle after doing all the patchwork.
I added the paper pieced letters, which are 5″ built up to 8″ with borders around each, because I felt it needed to be just a bit bigger–so now it’s 40″ by 48″.
Unfortunately I’m not at my home computer tonight so I can’t tell you where I found them. Letters created by Dori Hawks and found on the quiltercommunity.com (link here).
The throw is a mixture of quilt and craft cottons, with a few non-Christmas prints thrown in, since my intent was to make it entirely from stash fabrics. I am very relieved to finally have it pieced and basted, wobbly seams and all, to guarantee I will have it finished for Christmas 2013.
