Back to Sewing!




Yesterday I got back in the sewing room after a Thanksgiving break.  I need to start some serious gift sewing...but first I wanted to finish up the last-minute project I started last week. First up is the last block I made...I think it's my favorite! There is just something about those sideways zig-zags!


I had so much fun sewing Camille's "Vintage Holiday" pattern using Aneela's Cherry Christmas fabrics...I just wonder why I didn't make it sooner! (The block above is another favorite...maybe it's the red and aqua combination?)!


Each ornament block goes together quickly, it's easily a Saturday project if you have everything cut out!


Although I probably shouldn't have waited until just a few weeks before Christmas to start another Christmas quilt, this is one of those projects that is just fun...no stress!



It's the perfect project for sewing along with some Christmas music!


I've started setting the rows together and can't wait for backing fabric to arrive so I can get this quilted up!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I made this quilt earlier this year with Sherbet Pips! I love this pattern - it is easy and kind of addicting once you get started. Yours looks beautiful!

Another fun Christmas quilt. I keep saying "one day I'll make another quilt for Christmas." Need to take action!

It's very sweet, Sherri. I had so much fun when I made mine - there's definitely something about the size ways zig zags. :-)

I seriously do NOT have time for this but I am making it, too. I'm an idiot I suppose! Yours is super darling.

I just love this - I think I need to find this pattern right away. I have no time and too many other projects but I gotta make this!!!

You're so tempting me to make one! I have the pattern and some cute fabric, so may take you at your word that it is a Saturday project! Now I just have to cut it out before Saturday :)

Each of those blocks are so darn cute... I was on the same path over the weekend! I love the grey sashing.

So pretty, Sherri! I just bought this pattern at a Blog Hop with some traditional Christmas colored fabric and I can't wait to start it! I hope mine turns out as cute as yours!!!!

I just got the pattern for this to make it out of Kate Spain's Flurry and Joy. Can't wait to start. Hanging out for our 6 week summer holidays here in Australia!
