Sewing time has been more scarce than usual (not to mention blogging time) with all the busy-ness of the holiday season. But I managed to squeeze in some sewing recently and I actually have a new finish to share. It's even a Christmas-y project.Ann Kelle's Jingle collection with a few other Remix dots, and some Michael Miller Ta Dots. I love the graphic simplicity and cheerful colors of all of these prints (aren't those snowmen cute?) and it was fun to put them together in a quick quilt.
I used my Retro Christmas pattern (available in the Pattern Shop). I think I like it even more than my original Retro Christmas quilt. I'm trying to figure out why. Maybe because the colors are even more vibrant? I don't know. This is such a quick project to sew up and it feels satisfying to have something new done. This pattern is very Charm Pack or Layer Cake friendly.
I sat and bound it one night while watching a show with my family on ESPN about Bo Jackson. Brought back lots of memories of living in the early 90's. And it made me feel a little old. But what on earth does that have to do with Christmas or quilts? Pretty much nothing, other than every time I look at that binding, I'll think of Bo Jackson. Does anyone else do that - associate a project with the show they were watching at the time they created it?
Kits are sold out.
You can also find Ann Kelle Jingle fabrics and other Remix dots at the Fat Quarter Shop.
I hope you are all faring well with your own seasonal sewing, to-do lists, roasting chestnuts on an open fire, and the like.
