Christmas mini quilt

On Saturday our W I had a bagmaking workshop. I was there just to help and took a few projects along to work on. The first project was to finish the Christmas mini quilt for the swap I am in. I had tea dyed a strip of lace which I then decided not to add. Having quilted the quilt with a big stitch, I decided to change my mind and added the dyed lace to the bottom.

I adapted a pattern from Christmas 2011 by Anni Downs I made just a few alterations - the mini quilt needed to be a 12" square so I made the quilt wider. My French knots need practice so I chickened out and used hot fix crystals to replace the knots on the tree under the house and the stars on the trees were replaced with larger red crystals.

I hope my swap partner likes what Ive made. The ladies at the class were very complimentary about the mini quilt, I hope they weren't just being polite. :)
