Small Christmas Quilt Finish

This is a little Christmas quilt that I just finished binding.  I made this as part of a challenge with a group of quilting friends that meets two or three times a year.  We were given the dark red and dark green fabrics you see in my quilt, and the challenge was to make something with triangles.  I started out making 8 or 9 broken dishes blocks and then filled in the rest with other half square triangles.

I used the method of making 1 1/2" half square triangles from charm squares.  The tutorial can be found in my post here.  It is also linked on my side bar under Tutorials and Patterns.

The little quilt measures approximately 14".  I machine quilted a simple grid and used the #4 stitch on my Bernina to quilt the border.

This is another of the waterfalls that we saw on vacation.  This is my kind of waterfall.  If you look near the top of the photo you will see a bridge.  That is the road, and just to the right of the photo is where we parked the car.  I only had to hike about 25 yards on flat ground to see this.

The noise from this falls is like Niagara only much quieter.  

I hope you are finding some time to stitch today.

Thanks for visiting!
