In keeping with the season I found some Christmas prints to use this week. I especially like how the blue houses turned out. Now that I am trying fussy cutting, my dilemma has been deciding which way to orientate my hexagons when sewing them together. The houses were easy to decide because of the spires pointing outwards. I know it sounds simple but sometimes 2 choices are too many for me.
Another question for the week - I kept track of how long one hexagon flower took to sew up, not including finding the fabric and cutting it up. 39 minutes was my time, has anyone else done this? I thought it would be interesting to know how long my quilt took to make when I finally get it all sewn together.
And finally a small 21" X 21" quilt for my granddaughter's teddy bear Mary. I realized I hadn't made Violet a doll quilt yet. I also have to remember to put on a label. After years of giving away quilts I have started putting on labels and taking pictures. Maybe years down the road it might be of interest. I have quilts from my Mom and having a label made by her would have been nice.
Now I am going to do some Christmas baking, I can't believe I haven't done any yet. Oh well that means there will be more for the actual day instead of eating it all beforehand.
Merry Christmas to everyone.
