Christmas Quilt Along

Saturday was the Christmas Quilt-Along with Hazel and Sue. I was able to join along in the afternoon. Most likely, Hazel and Sue had shut off their machines and gone to bed by the time I started sewing.

I've been working on a quilt for my daughter based on this Sugar Garden Throw from Moda Bake Shop. The orginal is made from a layer cake.

My version is using yardage that I purchased on one of my California trips, so there is a little less variety in the fabrics. I've decided that I'm going to make more blocks without a red piece. I think the red should be a little less prominent.  It only requires a little bit of resewing, and I already have some of the replacement pieces cut.

I should have it done by Thanksgiving, maybe.

  1. That's going to be lovely. I think the red adds a real feeling of richness to it.
