A tiny quilted finish - BEFORE the holidays!

... And the end of the finishing spate. This is a tiny little quilt that, while being pieced, fit in the pocket of my jeans. Or the side pocket of my bag. Or what have you. It's scraps left over from another project, hand-pieced with thread left over from various cross-stitch projects. The back and binding were bought special, as was the gold and red sparkly floss for the actual quilting, and thread-wrapping on the back. I really like the way it came out, especially since I was winging it on the quilting! Don't know if I'll ever use it as a chessboard, since I can't find any of my chess pieces just now, but it's a nice little holiday accent - and, oh, FINISHED!!!

front - the chessboard

back - the stylized tree
