Christmas in May?
I scanned through tons of "scrappy Christmas quilts" on Google. There are some beautiful designs I wanted to try, but so many of them were based on red and green material. The majority of my fabric is dark blue. Who wants a blue wreath or tree?
Looking back on my notes from previous quilts, I came across a Storm at Sea quilt I made a few years ago. I love the pattern; I've dreamed of making another one. Here's my chance. It's a good size for a wall hanging or table topper.
I've cut all the material and had enough scrap left over to make a couple of rug mugs. Those got sewn together first. Now it's time to take the plunge on free-motion quilting.
I may have to bid on it myself.
And one more thing - Connie is the winner of the brown bear magnet giveaway. Congrats! It's boxed up and ready to go.
