A big welcome to any new visitors from FNSI.
This year I have been on a mini mission to make some seasonal decorations for my home, and I thought it was high time that I started making two lap quilts to decorate my living room this Christmas.
I bought the fabric for them back in January when I wrote this To Do list on my very first blog post (see point 8).
I kept looking at the fabric through the year but couldn’t make my mind up what design I wanted to make. I’ve almost cut into the fabric several times but each time I chickened out and, you know, I’m so glad I did because last week I saw THE design!
It’s not new, in fact I made a quilt last year using this very design for my Mum, but I happened to see a picture of the quilt made in Christmas fabrics and it just clicked with me 🙂 .
Anyhow, now I’ve decided I’ve been busy cutting all the pieces out this week and getting them ready to go for the Friday evening sew in.
Lots of cutting (and a sore arm!)
Marking all my diagonals – anyone else do this?
all done 😀
And on Friday evening I started piecing some of the fabric together.
everything to hand and busy chain piecing.
It was lovely to think that around the world there were ladies keeping me company 🙂
Until next time,
