Okay, so now on to more about the Christmas part of this post. All of you quilters and stitchers out there in blogland know that you have to get a jump on these things if you expect them to reside in your homes for the season. I stared this quilt top last year and need to add borders and layer it for quilting so we can actually use it this year. The fabrics are Birchwood Lane by Holly Taylor for Moda. Now since I wasn't thinking ahead last year, I didn't purchase the fabric for the borders. One thing I like about the Holly Taylor lines is that a lot of them can mix and match so I should be able to find something that works nicely. The fabric is flannel so it will be nice and cozy .
I discovered a stowaway after I had taken this picture. Can you find him? We have had spiders something fierce lately. Don't know where this one ran off to.
Hopefully you can see a little more detail in the print on the fabrics of this block.
This is another unfinished project from last year. It is one of Lizzie Kate's snippet santas. I can't remember the year.I am going to make it into a pillow. I first thought of making it into a Christmas purse and then thought it would get too dirty out and about. I have made a couple of buttons for it like the ones that the model uses on the chart.I have just the perfect fabric around here for it somewhere.
