Me at the Nov. retreat. Merry Christmas to everyone. All the best in the coming New Year.
Hard to believe it is the day before Christmas already. I am off work for 5 days and hope to enjoy them and hopefully get some sewing done. I do have alot of reorganization to do as well but I need to get a few gifts made. A late wedding and baby quilt for 2 things.

These are 2 blocks that I learned how to make at retreat. I may do a whole quilt of them. You start with a 12 inch block and cut into 4 triangles. There is a template the draw on the main fabric and then you foundation sew on strips of any width.
I use these pieces as my tags to start and stop sewing on other items that I am quilting/sewing. I quite like the look of them. I just have to decide on the foundation fabric to make a whole quilt.
Wow, it's already the 6th of Dec. Where has the time gone.
I'm blog hopping at the moment with Henry Glass Designs. It has been fun and I've alot more patterns now. Interesting reading all of the blogs involved as well.
Merry Christmas to everyone. Happy quilting

I don't think that I've posted this yet. Hopefully not. Birthday block I made for Patti B. Another that I completed at the retreat. I quite enjoyed making this one.
I've not sewn much since. Got to get back to that. I did the hand sewing for my secret guild pal for our Christmas party. Will have to take a picture and post it soon.
Happy quilting.
