Christmas Quilt

I’m either very late or
very, very early…

I’ve been working on a quilt I started at the end of last year.

I bought Christmas fabric at 60-75% off!
It’s been a lot of fun piecing these squares together.
It goes fast!

Here’s a few of the blocks I’ve pieced together:

I haven’t trimmed these yet, and
keep in mind
I’m only a beginner.
Not all the points are perfect,
but I figure that in the large quilt,
it won’t be too obvious.  (I hope!)

I am hoping to have this one done
before Christmas this year!   🙂

Happy Quilting,

Daisy

Colorful Quilt

A friend of ours is the pastor of a church which is getting ready for a missions trip to El Salvador.

They are going to be working with children, so a group of the women got together on a couple Saturdays and sewed quite a bunch of dresses for little girls sizes 1-10.
They also got shorts and shoes for the boys.

From the scraps left over after all that sewing, a few of the women who are quilters decided to make a prayer reminder for the church.

It has been hanging for weeks now in the church and I couldn’t wait to share it with you…

Did you notice all the colorful thread quilting on the black border? I also like the different directions of the squares, and the scrappy look.

I am praying for the group going to El Salvador. ….and I think I might just make a colorful quilt like this one.

I better look for my bag of scraps…not sure where it is after the move!

Happy quilting 🙂
