This month it's another tree, to go with two others and a house all on one row.
I cut all fabrics from my scrap bins, (want to see the scrap-containment-system?) and got a little dark compared to the other blocks already made.
It's been so much fun making a row or block once a month.
At the end of the post I'll show you what I have made so far...
The tree and sky are dark, so I decided to couch a lime perle cotton around the tree to make it stand out. This thread nest happened all by itself in the thread drawer...
(Never, I repeat never cut the tabs on a ribbon floss skein before putting it on a swift)
I took a moment and wound it onto an empty spool so it can be used, maybe, to define the tree when I start the quilting. Like this?
(I am saving them for two winter quilts planned/started)
Use them, girl! You will not use them up, and you can enjoy them on this quilt!
Are the moderns out there smirking yet?
They are so pretty, cows in the snow, stars in the snow, snowmen in the snow!
Look at this one...
Good thing I was smart enough to buy more than a half yard this time! Of course it was probably on sale at some cute little quilt shop on one of my travels.
Never too late to join, y'all
It's going to be a big quilt, a bed sized and I'm planning to quilt it in sections then join them.
We have a king, so I need to think ahead to the quilting process.
So far here are the finished parts
