Happy Little Things December Wrap Up

Hello Everyone! Welcome to the last month of the Happy Little Things BOM. If you are making the quilt, you will have received the border and finishing instructions. Make sure to check out Jacquelynne’s information and tips this month. There is also another great giveaway from this month’s sponsor, Thermoweb. Read to the end of this post to see how you can have 8 chances to win.

Before we get started, I want to let you know that all my quilt and bag patterns and finished project bags are on sale for 20% off through December 3 in my shop.

For those following along with me, I have a wrap up of the projects that I did with the Happy Little Things and Bitty Blooms embroidery patterns. First up is the finished block from Month 3.

I finished the block just as it was because it’s the perfect size to use with my Ackfeld Stand. I free motion quilted using a pale yellow Aurifil 50 weight thread, one of my favorites for quilting. Now I have 7 of these little quilts to display during the year. This one will be perfect for mid spring.

Here is my completed set of the Happy Little Things collection. I love Corey Yoder’s Sunnyside Up fabric from Moda. It made Jacquelynne’s designs so fun to work with. I also used Corey’s curated DMC floss pack for all the embroidery.

This set of Project Bag, Needlebook and Pincushion would make a nice gift for your quilty friends and none of them take long to make. You can find the information below to make each one of them:

The Needlebook and Pin Cushion will fit nicely in the bag with a small embroidery hoop, project and threads. If you have made or decide to make one of these projects, I would love to see it posted on the Facebook group or Instagram (see links below).

From top left and clockwise: Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall Bitty Blooms

Here are all my Bitty Blooms together. You can find the patterns for these embroidery designs, plus 8 more in Jacquelynne’s shop. I had a lot of fun stitching and finishing these little designs. The designs will also fit into the Happy Little Things blocks. If you would like to see how I finished them, you can find my tutorial here.

Now for the Giveaway!

This month’s sponsor is Thermoweb, maker of Heat n Bond plus other things. I used Heat n Bond Lite for all the small applique pieces in each of the Happy Little Things projects. I recently discovered the EZ-Print Lite printer sheets, too. I used them to make the petal border in this quilt:

Sew Your Stash Along Quilt

They were definitely a time saver.

For your chance to win a prize package from Thermoweb, answer this question in the comments below: When or if you applique, do you use a fusible for machine applique or do you hand applique? If you don’t applique, that’s ok, just tell me that.

  • Giveaway is open to all US and international readers.

    I just recently started using Sulky stabilizers for embroidery and applique and am amazed at the difference it makes! Merry Christmas to you and yours!
