Some Christmas Sewing


I finally decided what to do with my 12 Days of Christmas fabrics after hoarding them for the last couple of years.  I saw an easy tutorial on Amy Smart's blog that I thought would be perfect for getting a quick Christmas quilt together.  It was a piece of cake to cut out (took about 2 hours) and is so easy to piece.  I'm making 30 blocks for a finished size of approx. 52" x 63", which is a perfect throw-size.  Here it is on my flannel wall (sorry for the blurry picture):

 

 A close-up:


I'm loving it.  Think I'll free-motion quilt it with wavy lines, or loopy lines. I'm also loving working in my new cozy sewing corner.  I haven't done much with it since I last posted about it.  I think I'll paint the dresser (below) a fun bright color, like blue, and maybe put up red & white gingham curtains.  Or white curtains with pom-pom trim.   


Have a great weekend.  I have big plans for mine and will share next week.
