I have officially started Christmas sewing. Thanks for the push Karen. http://sewmanyways.blogspot.com/search/label/Make%20a%20Gift%20on%20the%2025th I decided to make Christmas quilts for the families of MJ’s 3 nephews. So far all they have seen of my quilting are baby quilts.
Several seasons ago I designed snowmen blocks for a guild block of the month project. I did turn my sample blocks into a finished quilt for a friend. It was great, blocks and quilt designed by me. It is the little things in life that make us happy.
I decided that this would be a great quilt to replicate. Each quilt is made up of 6 snowmen blocks, 2 large (14x24 inches)and 4 small (12x18 inches) and 4, 6 inch star blocks. I have cut out all of the pieces for the large guys and at least ½ of the pieces for the small guys. In addition to cutting block pieces I
put together 1 of the large guys the other night because it was the 25th. He took about an hour to put together.
My goal for August 25th is to have all of the blocks done for at least 1 quilt so I can spend the 25th putting the 1st top together. I hope you are all feeling the Christmas joy. Selina
