…can you believe it? Yes, I’ve started a new quilt project, with hopes to have it completed for this year’s holiday season.
One of my favourite on-line quilt shops (The Fat Quarter Shop) celebrated their 10th anniversary a couple of years ago. To celebrate this wonderful milestone, they published a free pattern, especially for the holidays, called “Deck-Ade the Halls”. It was released in instalments on their blog & you could download the instructions to make your own quilt. They even had a “quilt-a-long”; however I didn’t manage to get started then, even though I had all the fabric.
So here it is, 2 years later, and I have finally made a start. I am hoping that blogging about my progress will help keep me on track.
Download #1 listed the fabric requirements. I chose fabric from the Aspen Frost collection by BasicGrey for Moda Fabrics. I really like this line. It has lots of vintage touches. The Aqua, Red & White colour scheme is fun too.
Download #2 is the first block called “Three Wise Gingerbread Men”. There was lots of cutting, but the cute little gingerbread men came together nicely with their red bow-ties & buttons.
The unfinished block is 14-1/2″ x 35-1/2″. What do you think?
Until next time, Connie 😄
