But first….

I finished binding these two little doll quilts yesterday.

And since I had LOTS of black and white scraps left, I started on a few more.

Did I tell you how much I enjoy making doll quilts!! 😀

Just about out of the pink so used mustard gold polka dots on this one.

I REALLY love how this is turning out. This will be the back.

I would like to make a second one but am out of the white with black stars fabric.


OK… Now on to Christmas.

My first Christmas blocks. I made this for a Block Lottery I signed up for in the Quilt Group I belong to. We are all making the same block using this Moda Bake Shop tutorial.

It is supposed to true up to an 11″ square but mine turned out a bit short. About 1/4″. So I am going to use them myself for something. Not sure what.

Those were the first ones I made.

These next ones, the second batch, were still a bit shy of 11″ square but I am finishing them (made 4) and sending them off anyway.

For the next ones I make, I will remember to add a teensy extra when cutting and then trim down to size when finished.

What sewing are you doing for the holidays? Sprucing up the homestead or making gifts.
