Regardless of the hot, sticky weather outside, it’s holiday time in here. Somehow, I got yesterday’s Christmas blocks arranged and finished the top. I did this while the rest of the family was occupied watching Wipeout. The dogs think it’s hilarous. I know, how could I pass this up and sew instead??
Today, I moved on to another Christmas quilt. I totally stole this block idea from Joanna.
Totally stolen idea! And, WordPress, you and me and your image uploader are getting along so well. Not.
Joanna’s quilt is just gorgeous! I love how dainty her blocks look, given that they are 6″. Mine are going to be a little beefier, coming in at a very round 8 3/8″. Yeah, how’d that happen? Math, don’t fail me now! I really thought the block would be great in these festive Christmas fabrics. I’m loving this so far. Have to decide how many blocks to make. Hmm…
In other festive news, a lovely new book arrived:
This is a fantastic new book. You can go visit the author’s website to see more of her work. Beautiful stuff!
