Christmas QAL - June


This weekend I will be participating in the Christmas QAL and linking up over at Joanna's with the rest of the players.  The is also a challenge this year - a Christmas project using no red or green.  Details are on Joanna's board.



I've pulled out the 'under the bed' tote of seasonal fabric, orphan blocks, etc.. and I know I have gathered a few FQs over the last couple of months, so will add them to the mix.  This is my toy box for these weekends.



First thing I must do is put this binding on a quilt.  It is not a Christmas quilt, but the fabric is - just some fun to add to this huge quilt!  Then I can put a few hand stitches into the binding as I pass it while working on other projects this weekend.



I have a couple of aprons cut and ready to play with.  I'm hoping I can find some kitchen towels to match for a cute gift set.



And for my non-red/green project - I bought this small clover rotary and extra blades to play with the tiniest of Twister templates - I laid a 1.5" square of fabric with the template to show the size.

Maybe you would like to join us once a month?  Please be sure to visit the link up to see what others are playing with.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  5. I like the idea of making aprons and giving them with matching towels. That's a good gift. I agree with everyone else; I'm in awe at all you get done and all so well done.
