February and Christmas are two words that should never appear in the same sentence but it has. Gail Pan's brand new Christmas range 'All things Christmas' arrived this week.....yes on the 21st February.....it took me by surprise as it wasn't due in until April. Gail gave me a lovely fat quarter bundle late last year and I thought that I had plenty of time to design, make and kit up a new block of the month ready for when the fabric was delivered........ummm......NO! So Wednesday I pulled out the fat quarters and the blenders that I had put aside and started work on the quilt. I began with some pretty baubles.
I then spent my time in the Farmers Wife Stitch along group on Thursday making Christmas blocks. (I promise to be back Farmers wifering next month!)
After 2 big days of stitching I had enough done to be able to tell that I am going to love this quilt when it is finished.
And today I gatecrashed a Saturday Stitching group's get together in the classroom so that I could get some more blocks stitched.....thanks Sue!
I am hoping to have the quilt top finished within the next fortnight, so I will have more details available then......number of months, price, size, starting date etc.....so stay tuned.I have just uploaded the 15 fabrics plus the panel onto my online shop for those of you interested in purchasing some for your stash.
Off to stitch some more little baubles.
