Ho ho ho on Design Wall Monday
Did you know that there are only 71 more days till Christmas?? Neither did I till looked it up! I sew A LOT this weekend and I was determined to get this UFO from about 2 years ago together. One hundred and twenty one 5" squares of Christmasy goodness. I used about 40 different fabrics.
Some of my favorites are this vintage looking Santa who occupies the center square...
and here is another vintage looking print... such sweet little kids playing with a train...
and a kooky looking orange reindeer!
This one is a Nancy Wolff print I just recently found. As far as I can tell she isn't designing fabric anymore and that makes me sad. I love her unique quirky style.
Now I realize that putting sashing on these blocks did nothing to quiet them down, in fact I think it got even busier looking but I'm ok with that. Looking at all those different fabrics makes me smile! I'm planning on a wide border of that yellow sashing fabric and maybe an inside border too. I'll have to see what might work. And I am a bit surprised and pleased that somehow I managed to make yellow Christmas quilt. I LOVE IT!
