Happy Friday lovely people!
So I know Christmas has recently been and gone… but I am also learning that with each passing year it seems that within a blink of an eye the next one has come around even quicker than the last!
As with most sewing enthusiasts I know, Christmas crafting is my most favourite theme when it comes to creating for the home. So with the festive spirit still fresh in the house, I set back to work on Lynette Anderson’s cute block of the month named Christmas Fun.
I was part of Lynette’s Button Club, and received both a sweet button and its corresponding ‘block’ over a period of eight months. It has been my practice needle-turn applique piece, and although I can see my many mistakes, I am absolutely delighted with it!
The little reindeer are my favourites!
I so enjoyed making the little 3 inch Ohio Star blocks!
The blocks are missing their buttons at this stage. I will baste and quilt it before I add them. Talking of which – do you have any suggestions on how I could quilt it?? There is so much detail that I am really unsure how to go about it – so any ideas will be gratefully received!! (smile)
I look forward to showing you the quilt again once it is all complete!
I will be back on Monday with a sweet last-minute gift you might want to whip up in time for Valentine’s day!
Till then – have a wonderful weekend!
