I can't believe how fast these days are going by! Today SARAH has us adding that sashing and cornerstones - closer to a finish. She promised a quilt in 12 days and your are getting one.
Today's Hosts Are:
A scrappy version - I have been hiding something all along the way with this hop. I was one of Sarah's testers and I ran into a bit of a problem. Not with her pattern, but with my fabrics. Do you remember that tip in red highlight? Careful pressing sensitive fabrics? Well, my plaid fabric was a sensitive fabric and I knew that, but in using the method of press/stack/ press even with a low temp iron was too much for that fabric. My units all melted into each other.
Then with some fabric swap outs - the next pressing session left huge black messes all over. Someone had used a fuseable without the pressing sheet - black gunk all over my iron that had not been cleaned. My original project just scrapped! So - we start again. Hey, that tote of Christmas fabric is sitting there, so use it.
And - I went small. I reworked the pattern a bit to eliminate some seams and used 1.5" bits and strips. Now I have a wallhanging. But this pattern is too pretty to just give up on.
Besides, I have Christmas quilts. This is my finished quilt made during the monthly installments of Festive Mystery by Sue Aubry of QuiltTimes. I opted to have one less row than her pattern - but had the blocks made, so used them to make a matching pillow. The quilt is 44" x 52" and the pillow is 18".
Today is Slow Sunday Stitching and I am going to use the day to finish the hand work on my Feather Tree.
