It will be a table topper on the living room coffee table this Christmas season.
The finished size is 17" by 21" and I used light cotton batting, and a striped fabric cut on the bias (single fold) for the binding. The little churn dash squares are 3" finished size. As I said before, it's a design by Darlene Zimmerman, called Peppermint Dash, and I downsized it to make it fit a doll bed.
Like a lot of others, I have started Bonnie Hunter's Easy Street quiltalong. I am using up some Christmas fabric from my stash, and I have the first clue finished, which is making lots of four patches. I'm trying to get myself into the Christmas spirit, so I photographed them as a wreath:
Here's a close-up so you can see the snowflakes and holly leaves:
The second clue came online at Bonnie Hunter's website this morning, but I have not worked on it yet. I've been working on a baby quilt for a friend's first baby. Here it is:
It's from a free online pattern from Moda Bake Shop:
I put the prairie points on the outside edge and changed the borders, but I started with that pattern. The nursery is painted a soft green. The Baby Shower is tomorrow, but I am going to wait until the baby comes to add a label to the back.
I am also making Barbara Brackman's weekly blocks for the women's suffragette movement. Here's the source: http://grandmotherschoice.blogspot.com/
The last two week's blocks:
|Little Boy's Breeches|
|Everybody's Favorite: Universal Sufferage|
Well, December is coming tomorrow, whether we are ready for it or not. My goals for next week are part two of Easy Street and addressing Christmas cards. I'll talk to you in December. Take Christmas prep one baby step at a time, and it'll get done......and even if it all doesn't get done, Christmas will still come, just the same.
