13th November: Gemma from Pretty Bobbins
So, what have I contributed to this rather intimidating line-up?
Well, I was allocated block #7 from Alyce's cute pattern, Ornamental, and decided to make the 5" version...
... but I had so much fun whipping it up I couldn't stop at just the one...
|O(rnamental) Christmas Tree - top|
No, your eyes aren't decieving you - I went a little crazy and made 11 / 12 of the designs! Oopsie. ;)
As you can see, I joined them in a Christmas Tree shape with the intention to make it into a wall-hanging, perfect for festive decorating. Unfortunately my Christmas-y fabric is hiding somewhere in an unpacked box so even though I know I have the perfect charm pack of Ready, Set, Snow waiting to be used, I had to make do and just hope I still generated the festive spirit. Did I manage to pull it off??
It currently measures 20 1/2" x 25 1/2" but now I'm stuck umming and ahhing over a possible border and, as per usual, how to quilt it. Please help! Honestly, all suggestions would be very much appreciated as I hope to have this finished in time for the linky party on November 30. Ahh!
Huge thanks to Kristy and Alcye for allowing me to join in the Sew Seasonal fun.
Now... pop over to visit Janice to see what cuteness she's created (drool!)... and then tomorrow two of my favourite bloggy friends are playing host - Lucy and Becca. Yay!
