Isn't this little guy cute? He followed my daughter home from England in June. He's intended to be a cell phone charm but we both agreed he's too fragile for that so I like to hang him from the side of my sewing machine. Maybe I'll start a new trend.
As promised this is the Christmas quilt I made using the Twisted Sisters template and pattern. It's sewn together using partial seams. The fabric is mainly from the Countdown to Christmas line and it's leftovers from a prior quilt. My motivation was the small amount of leftover green paisley that makes up the center square of the spoke. I can't decide if it needs a border. Any ideas?
I also signed up for the Designer Block of the Month at The Fat Quarter Shop using the Strawberry Fields line by Joanna Figueroa early this year. It was a real splurge for me as I'm on the thrifty side! The fabric is so beautiful. I love it.
This is block 4 that came last week. I like to take it out of the package and just keep it nearby for a few days until I cut into it. Have I said I love it?!
Here's block 1,
and block 2,
and block 3.
The directions are so clear and the fabric cuts so generous, I think you could make two blocks every month with what you receive in each packet. Have a nice weekend and see you soon!
