Friday's Work

I almost never post more than twice a week but I was so excited this afternoon I just had to share.

Here is my 12 Days of Christmas wall hanging. It isn’t sewn down yet but everything is ready and the appliqueing will begin tomorrow. I spent the afternoon putting a finishing edge on the tree and then making everything else would fit on the background fabric I have chosen. I find that I am very impressed and pleased with how it looks. I still have 4 ornaments to applique and then figure out how to finish them but I will figure that out next week. And I may have this on the HQ before the end of the month.

I also will show Block 2 in the Layer Cake Quilt Along.

I am not sure that I like this one as much and was very concerned that it called for 5 different fabrics. There are only 40 fabric pieces in a layer cake and if all of the blocks were to call for 5 pieces, we would need 60. I will pay more attention from now on to be sure I don’t run out of fabric before all 12 are introduced.

And lastly, I appliqued down the last 2 snowman blocks that I have prepped. I think I am 2 or 3 behind in prepping but I will get to that this weekend, I hope. This is a Bunny Hill BOM.

Hope everyone has a great weekend and I'll see you at the Monday Design Wall.

I see you are using Bliss also. I need to get the first two blocks made so I can stay/get caught up. I like your blocks.
