I'm almost done with my homemade Christmas presents! I have one last project, and it's a biggie! I'm making an anniversary quilt for my hubby's grandparents who were married on Christmas day over 50 years ago. My Putting the Bee in Christmas ladies helped make most of the blocks, but I'm making a few. I've completed 2 of the 3.
Cluck, Cluck Sew's tutorial if you're curious. The other block.....well, let's just say I must have been a bit touched in the head when I chose that one. All the pieces had to be cut from templates, there are in set seams everywhere, and when I finished it was a whole inch larger than it should have been! I was not pleased. Hubby made me a margarita and I'm feeling much better now. I guess the bright side is it wasn't too small. You can always cut it down, but it's hard to make it bigger---except with borders! :) I almost gave up after getting the middle red star together. I thought, "I should just add borders and be done," but I thought that was the wimpy way out. Quilting hides lots of mistakes, right?
Jules sent me these AWESOME pins today--she made them! How stinkin' cute are these?
