No, I’m not going to sing the song for you…although I do a mean Miss Piggie version of “5 Golden Rings! Ba dum dum dum!”. I’ve been working on another project for the the Savvy Seasons Swap over at Flickr. I also made the Christmas Apron for my partner and now I’ve pulled out another Christmas fabric that I had from last year and am working with it. At our first quilting retreat, Cherie generously shared a bunch of Kate Spain’s 12 days of Christmas fabrics with us and I can’t remember who I had to fight off…whether it was Karen or Mandi, but I was determined to get the panel from the line. I’m not quite sure why either. I must have REALLY been in the Christmas mood. lol
The panel is darling but I didn’t have a plan for it…but I do now. 😉 I’ll share the final product idea when I’m further along, but so far I’ve cut up the panel and have turned each block into a scrappy wonky star with the panel piece in the center. So that gives me 12 blocks. And I happily have reached into my scraps for the whole thing!! Woohoo!
Phew! That was a lot of work! Enjoyable and relaxing…but even wonky quilting I do precisely. 😉 I’m just not a speedy quilter.
Do you have a favorite block? I change my mind all the time… I sort of love how the fabric in #9 looks like ruffles on a tutu for the dancing lady. And how the AH fabric in #11 has a mod sound feel to it for the piping. But they’re all fun to me!
