Christmas just about here. The house is decorated and the tree is up with lights and all those decorations. Some have been around for years, makes me smile about the fun memories. The baklava is baked and in the freezer, and the cookie dough in the refrigerator and is ready to roll out and get those cookie cutters out and egg paint decorate them too.
When last week's scrap bin reduction was unsuccessful I decided to give it another try. I decided this time to at least try to produce something with a bit more eye appeal. These first 10 are done which will finish at 10 inches. Have another 26 to go.
At least the rest of them are cut and ready to go. They make a good evening project sitting in front of the TV preparing each step in the process, sewing them the next day and moving on to the next step the following evening. Takes about three days to get a batch of 10 done.
Seems rather silly at this late date to be fussing around with a Christmas project, but there is always next year. At this time of year with so much going on, these silly little projects seem to work.
I do better with smaller projects this time of year, too. Your star blocks are fun - great for using scraps. Have a fun holiday week!ReplyDelete
Yes, I love our “vintage” decorations as well – they add so much warmth to the season! Yum! Baklava and cookies!ReplyDelete
Your star blocks caught my eye at the stash report with their beauty! I love learning and being inspired from experienced quilters! What a great scrap busting idea!
There’s something joyous about creating Christmas items throughout the year! I sometimes participate in this blog, 1 Xmas Item a Month, in which we share a Christmas item/gift that we made. By the end of the year, we have the potential to have 12 gifts made!
What pretty Christmas fabrics. It will be a great quilt. I'm going to start a few Christmas projects for next year after the holiday hubbub is over.ReplyDelete
Those stars are looking good. Enjoy your stitching time this week and the rest of the holiday fun.ReplyDelete
Lovely stars, and a little project sounds great at this time of year. It's never too early (or late) to sew a Christmas quilt ;)) Enjoy the holidays!ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing, and linking up!
Your blocks look gorgeous. Hey I'm going to start a Christmas quilt this week - lol! Have a Merry Christmas, and thank you for sharing with us at To Do Tuesday!ReplyDelete
Love the star quilt. I wish I was crafty and could do this beautiful work. I flunked sewing in home economics in high school. I was that bad.ReplyDelete
Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.
Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. ♥
Love those star blocks! Your new Christmas project is lovely! I don't care how late it is--it's always Christmas season if you want it to be! Thanks for sharing on my weekly show and tell, Wednesday Wait Loss.ReplyDelete
Your star blocks look great! I like the effect of using the prints as backgrounds rather than using prints for the stars themselves. Merry Christmas!ReplyDelete
Small projects always work. Quilts not so much, but I stitch Christmas pieces all year long. I rarely stitch anything else.ReplyDelete
It's never the wrong time to work on a Christmas project. Think of yourself as working ahead.ReplyDelete
Your small projects are just as nice as a big quilt. Merry Christmas!ReplyDelete
Hi Donnalee, that is a very lovely project and yes, Christmas will be back next year :-) I hope that you're having a great Christmas. Thanks for linking up to Free Motion Mavericks.ReplyDelete
