The Last Minute Christmas Sampler QAL is almost finished. Julianna has released all 12 patterns, and so far I have made 10 of them. Her last two are a little more detailed, and require a lot more concentration and effort than I felt like putting into sewing today.
My mission today, was to start quilting these blocks and turning them into place mats. I have trimmed them all down to 11.5" squares, and they will all be backed in the white and red star/snowflake print in the top photo. Quilting is straight lines approximately 1/2" inch apart, and the binding is a slightly marbled red.
So far one has been completed, I had grand visions of getting them done, so we would be able to use them on Christmas Day, but maybe I'll make that Christmas 2015. I have had a lot of fun making these blocks, some have definitely challenged me at times, but the result has been worth it. Thanks for such a fun project Julianna.
Linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced and the QAL Linky party at Sewing Under Rainbow.
