Today, I am finally over my cold! There is nothing like being sick to make you remember how wonderful it is to be well.
This Christmas I am bound and determined not to have piece of fabric wrapped around my tree. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but I have had this quilt in my mind for over 2 years and this year it is going to happen. I cut out all the diamonds last month and today I laid them all out. I Love it!
When it is all done, the points will be cut off and it will look like this pink and yellow quilt I made for my niece. Before binding I will cut a hole in the middle and a slit in one side so it can fit around the Christmas tree.
Would anyone be interested in making it along with me? Let me know. I would be more likely to get it done if others were sewing along with me! ;)
I also have plans to make a bunch of Christmas pillows for family gifts this year. I am really digging those gnomes. Here's to Christmas in October! :)
