Yes, Ladies, it's time to start thinking about Christmas. I've been wanting to join the Christmas Quilt Along the past couple of years, but it was always held on Saturdays. This year, however, it's on Saturday AND Sunday, so this is my year! If you click on the link on my sidebar, you can get all the details if you'd like to join, too. Joanna and Hazel are our hostesses, and Quilt Sue has issued an interesting challenge for us.
After reading the challenge, I gathered the necessary tools: my graph paper, colored pencils, and my friend Google. Then I started gathering fabric.
Blogger insists on rotating this picture. I was auditioning my fabric and layout before I started cutting.
I plan to have a crazy-pieced angel in the center. I still need to work on that design aspect. And I have a bunch of hst’s in my future. I may work on them tomorrow, or maybe not until next month.
I signed up for a new BOM at my LQS this week, and it’s a Snowman wall hanging. I decided today that I’ll work on it during the QAL also. I’m really terrible at doing BOM’s, so I figure this is the perfect time to work on it, and try to keep up to date.
This is what it should look like when it’s finished!
Hope you’re all having a nice weekend! I must go now and do some stitching.
Be kind to yourself and to all those you encounter.
