Holly Wreath Wall Hanging Quilt Kit PLUS Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed.  Congrats to Anne who commented:
Spending time with my family is wonderful, but this year my daughter and son-in-law will be with his parents in another state.
Cool nights & rustling leaves.  Yes it’s fall and time to put on the push to finish those handcrafted holiday presents.  Here’s one you can finish in a day, or better yet, give as a gift!
Holly Wreath is an applique & pieced 18” wall hanging or table topper.  Though I did raw edge machine applique on my sample, you can absolutely do yours by hand if you prefer that method.
Holly Wreath Snap Sack Kit
All Snap Sack patterns are written by Joan Ford, author of your favorite Scrap Therapy & Cut the Scraps books.
Holly Wreath Snap Sack Kit-001
I fused my leaves & berries, then used the blanket stitch as my quilting.  I also quilted in the ditch around the blocks & between the borders all with luscious Aurifil 40 wt thread.
Holly Wreath Snap Sack Kit-002
Remember, our Snap Sacks are complete quilt kits.  This wall hanging is sure to add a little joy to your holidays this season.  All the details about the size and fabrics for this project can be found here:
Everything you need for the top, the batting, backing, binding,  and of course the pattern is included.  Just add needle, thread & YOU (I tried to get you in the bag too, but you wouldn’t fit)!
Perfect for gift giving (or treating yourself)!  This kit is available in the shop or online HERE!
A new kit comes out each month. Check out all of the kits right HERE.
As we have in the past, we will give away a free kit of this month’s Snap Sack to one of you (though without the bag)!
Leave a comment telling me your favorite part of this holiday season.  Our giveaway is open to all blog followers, so if you get our updates via email or rss, be sure to put that in your comment too. I will draw a random winner on Saturday, November 10th.
