Christmas Quilt Along
It's time to put these blocks into a top.
Rather than the strip settings, I am going with green blocks. After all, this is to use up scraps - had just enough of the one green for inside blocks and just enough for the setting greens (love the old ornaments in this fabric).
I have the two halves done - time for some lunch. Then I will put them together and add the thin white sash.
Oh - lookin' good! I really don't like working with seasonal fabrics, but I like this - how vain!! Now I will go thru my tote and cut/piece 3.5" squares for a scrappy final border. Hmm - I think I hung this upside down - my fussy cuts are on their heads.
Well, I need a bit of a break, so I think I am going to switch gears and do some work on this little secret project. That's 18 count aida by the way - love small even in my stitcheries. Sewing will resume tomorrow.
I got the scrappy border on and the binding is ready. I do have a backing and batt, but have 4 other quilts waiting.
And I finished another secret project. It is time to pick up the Christmas fabrics and get some housework done. I will work on my cross stitch piece later.
Thank you for a fun weekend,
