Day 6: Tuesday, August 27
Thank you sew much for stopping by today!
On my bucket list of quilts...make a Christmas Quilt for each bed in our home. Well that hasn't happened...YET...but at least now I have a little Christmas Quilt for our bedroom.
Hubby crafted our quilt hanger in our bedroom. My new Christmas quilt looks really great hanging there, don't you think?
I wanted to try a modern quilt and was inspired by the Ho Ho Ho Blog Hop earlier this month...the idea of a Christmas tree utilizing the hexies as ornaments. Can you see the quilting in green...the tree? You may have to look really close.
We tried to take a some pics outside but the sun was diving behind the trees and was sadly not providing too much light. At least today was sunny...in stark comparison to most of our days lately...and you can certainly feel fall in the air along with the shorter days. And what follows...fall, Halloween, and Thanksgiving??? Why Christmas...of course! It really isn't that far off!!
Here are some closeups. An origami hexagon star.
Some machine embroidery...A Christmas in Bloom design pack purchased from Embroidery Library. Most of the hexie ornaments are from an Aspen Frost mini-charm pack...the balance from scraps of other Christmas Fabric.
Thank you, again, for stopping by. I love your comments almost as much as Christmas...so I hope you will leave one! And please stop by again soon!
