I had some free time today while waiting for an appliance repair man and cut out my quilt along blocks. This is a 3x5 block segment layed out on my cutting table. I found that the wonky angle is not as exaggerated when the blocks are together, so if I do one again I may go for more exaggerations. I don't think I will be able to sew the blocks together till the new years (unless I sneak in tonight) but I already have some accent blocks for the backing planned using some leftover 3 to 6 inch strip segments.
Now that I am done with Christmas sewing I gathered up my scraps and leftovers and came up with the following pile that I am, to tell the truth, sick of! I overworked some of these with the goodie bags, the table runners, and just having them out looking at me every day for the last 2 months.
If you would like an early start on your projects for next year and any of these appeal to you, I'm giving them away. There are a couple 'fat 1/8' (18" x10") but most are more like 5x10.
Leave me a comment and let me know if you like traditional (deep green and burgundy)or bright Christmas fabric and if the pile gets big enough I will divide into two.
Who knows, maybe you are all tired of looking at Christmas fabric to, but I will take the comments I have and send out what I have gathered to an interested party after the first of the year.
(give away completed - Pokey won!)
I am going to try to get a Friday post in, but that will be it till after New Year's so Merry Christmas everyone!
Your quilt along block fabrics work very well together. It looks good. Something to look forward to in the new year and may it be a peaceful one! Bright works for me!ReplyDelete
Brights work for me too!ReplyDelete
I appreciate your thoughts on adding "wonk" to your quilt along blocks. Usually I play it too safe on the angles and it's pretty subtle in the end. I love your color selection. It will be a great quilt!ReplyDelete
Your quilt blocks are lovely. I love the bright reds.ReplyDelete
oops. I hit the return key, was going to say those blue fabrics are nice too. You might want to put some of those pretty fabrics aside for next year.ReplyDelete
I really like the colors in your new quilt blocks, too. Also that they are a little wonky but not overly so appeals to me. Just enough to add interest.ReplyDelete
Any of your Christmas/winter fabric leftovers would be fun to have as my current stash of Christmas fabrics is quite sad indeed. I'm still enthused about Christmas projects to make because it seems I always come across the most appealing ideas when it's too late to make them for the current year. Could that mean I might actually get a jump start on next year? Stranger things have happened! :o)
I have very little Christmas fabric - how funny is that - but, I sure could use some to get started on things for next year! Thanks for offering some up...ReplyDelete
The Quilt Along looks great! I see we have some similar fabric, used to different effect. I used the Arcadia on my back!ReplyDelete
And since you're giving stuff away... I'm partial to the brights, but not picky.
I like your wonky slants. I sometimes try to go muted colors, and end up bright. Or I say, I think on Debbie Mumm, but the finish usually goes Mary Englebreit! Oh, well, they are both great! It's fun to add new Christmas prints to the mix, so throw my name in, too, please. Thanks!ReplyDelete
LOVE those county fair and martini dot fabrics in your blocks! It's gonna look fab all sewn together!ReplyDelete
All those fabrics are great in the picture. I especially like the blue snowflake. I like both traditional and non but probably more drawn to the brights.ReplyDelete
