Just this morning I finished piecing my "Christmas Wish" quilt top which was a free block of the month design from Gail Pan (Thanks Gail)! I'm so glad I waited to put my blocks together until I saw Gail's version...I love the scrappy sashing! The only thing I did a bit differently was I cut my outer borders 3 1/2" wide (hers are 2").
I loved working on these stitcheries each month--and since there were only 9 blocks, I'll have plenty of time to get this quilted in time for Christmas. This was a free quilt for me--I only used fabrics from my stash!
Oh, and I spent some time this week cleaning and organizing my sewing space...what is it about a clean cutting surface that somehow brings to mind tons of new projects to start? Maybe it's a good thing my table doesn't always look this clean!
Be back soon with lots more to share!
Thanks to so many of you who have posted such wonderful remembrances of this date in history; we must remember and be grateful always for those who keep watch.
