Did you know that it's Christmas in July at Sew Mama Sew, and that I got to be one of Santa's elves to bring you a Christmasy project to get a jump on the holiday rush?
You might want to learn how to make some 'extended maverick stars' a variation of Gwen Marston's maverick stars..
and combine those with some 'mod trees' to make a hip Christmas tree skirt. There's a pdf on Sew Mama Sew with all the instructions and some really fun Christmas fabric to choose from.
Meanwhile I'm still plugging away at this quilt.
I'm pretty happy with how it's coming along....about half done.
My loving husband is always bragging about me...well, turns out he was invited to a baby shower for a colleague in Chicago...just happened to mention I might be able to make a special quilt for their new little boy. So....the parents requested orange, brown and golden yellow...I went to my stash and chose these.
They wanted a zig zag quilt like this one. Instead of all those half square triangles, I used AmandaJean's no triangle method. Easy peasy...totally genius! Went together like a snap. The only change I made was to combine fabrics in some of the zigs...or are they zags? I like the look mixing it up a bit. It's very little boy to me.
It may not look like it, but I really am following doc's orders...short sewing sessions...limited time per day...exercises twice a day...every day...and a good attitude. (well, that last one may need a little work.)
