Have you heard about the Sew Along that is going on over at Primitive Gatherings? Lisa Bongean has organized a fun Christmas sew along that can be made with traditional or modern fabrics. Her concept is that we will make a red and white quilt, 25 blocks before Christmas. The patterns are free, so do check it out for some fun free block patterns to make now or later. After Christmas the patterns will no longer be available for free.
Of course I had to give things my own twist, and decided to use both red and green fabrics, and make two blocks out of each pattern. I am not at all sure where I am going with this, but hey, if I see this sew along though until the end, I will end up with 50 blocks, right? That can't be bad.
So here is the thing---I guess I wasn't reading the fine print when I pitched myself into this project. You see the blocks are only 6 inches, finished. Look at my photo above. Woo hoo, flying geese, right?
Well that's great, but when you compare them to the size of my thumb nail in the second photo, you will see the block units are , well, kinda teeny.
This is what I have made so far. The block patterns seem to be getting more complicated, which I am not sure is a good thing. The fourth pattern is out on Lisa's website, and it has quite a lot of teensy weensy pieces. We shall see how this goes.
Busy week this week. Not much time for sewing or blogging. Hope to touch base with you one or two more times!
