|My Christmas fabric stash |
(and I should own up that there's a bunch of Lori Holt Christmas fabric somewhere too).
I'm not quite sure how I ended up with so many Christmas fabrics but a restless Friday afternoon, knowing I had a Saturday night with a few sewing hours ahead, I decided it was time to reduce that stash a little bit. (Yes, I should have been doing something more useful with my WIPs, but you know how it goes ....)
I made this pull which I think work fairly well together, look suitably festive and should make a bit of a dent in that Christmas box.
A super quick, chunky pieced sectional quilt planned out on squared paper and off I went, cutting and stitching the sections.
It required a little attention, but not too much brain power which was handy since I don't have much of that right now.
Eh voila! Some Christmas stash busted and a big happy, no nonsense Christmas quilt top all ready to be quilted when I finally get some 505 for basting. There's no way this will be finished for this Christmas, but that's grand, that wasn't really the plan anyway.
