Whoop Whoop Friday 1/22/16


Well DOTTIE is a flimsy!!  The original pattern is much larger, but I went with a smaller setting for a throw and added an outer border.  I know - a border!  Ah, I just thought of it as part of the piecing and could look right past it.  Not sure when this will get quilted, but the purpose was to get it to this stage for the month.


I made one 'reindeer' block using Cindy's pattern for the QAL.  I don't want to make another big Christmas quilt, so plan on making at least one block each month for a wallhanging instead.  He looks a little out of sorts without his face, but button eyes and maybe a yo-yo- nose after the quilting.


And I was gifted another baggy of scraps.  Normally I would tuck this away as I have others waiting, but this one had a lot of blue in it - the color for RSC16.  So I dumped it out and sorted triangles into my Goosey blocks container, strings in the tote, cut down the purples and into the barrels - but the blues.....  I have all of my monthly goals DONE.. SO today I play with blue!

The question remains - do we get dumped on with this snow storm coming?  Everyone stay safe.  I picked up a few supplies/staples yesterday, crockpot meals are planned, and I will sew the weekend away.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  12. Great top -- Dottie. The white border really finishes it off if you ask me. Hum, that deer is darling... I can just imagine the eyes and nose as described.

  13. Dottie is so bright and cheery, love her. The little reindeer is great too. I'm hoping to get the whole quilt done this time. I have a really great start record with her quilts. I have several wall hangings and table runners instead.

  16. Dottie looks great. I like the idea of the single reindeer too. I might do something similar to that as I don't want to do another large Christmas quilt, but loved the designs.
