I absolutely adore the centre square, with those vintage cars and Christmas trees. Anyone remember those days?
I used lots of older fabrics from my stash to compliment the new ones, and the backing full of snowflakes was just waiting to be used!
The pattern is a free tutorial by Jenny Doan of the Missouri Star Quilt Company that you can find by clicking on this link. I used the binding tool she recommends, but I think you would be fine with just cutting strips and trimming off the edges when done.
I am now in the midst of making a paper pieced project wall hanging. I knew I wouldn't be able to make it in time for the Christmas boxes that went out earlier this week, so now I am taking my time and playing with it whenever the mood hits me. I have finished one of the four sections required and have really enjoyed making the units so far. Do you recognize the beginnings of a halo?
The picture of the back gives you a pretty good idea of how many fabrics are being joined to make the background.
The pattern is called Mary and Jesus, designed by Jen Frost and will finish at approximately 28" x 36". You can find the pattern available HERE. I can't wait to dig into my blues for the robe!
In between my sewing spurts, I'm going through my Christmas quilts and will do some hanging today. I usually wait 'till December 1 but it just seems like a good day to start! My snowman quilt has been waiting patiently in storage and so have all my red and green ones!
Thank you so much for coming by today. It's always a great day for quilting!
