Nothing I love more, than a great blog hop, to get all our holiday juices flowing! We all know that Sew Cal Gal does it better than anyone , now don't we? Thanks for having us again this year. We love you!!
I would like to share this quilt with you.
Kind of bright isn't it?
Nothing beats a "fun" quilt for the holiday season.
This beautiful pattern is Timeless Treasures "Springfield Stars".
It seems that they have taken it down from their website. I can't even find it in the archives! :-( Boo Hoo.
The original pattern was this beautiful pastel floral,
But I had this bright silly Christmas print! What is a girl supposed to do???
You would never recognize this pattern now.
This year was my year to use what is in my sewing room instead of rushing out and buying more fabric. You know the prices of cotton have sky rocketed...
OK, so I am not at 100% yet, but I am working on it. (Baby steps - baby steps)
And I have to tell you, with those high prices, you don't want to waste any of your precious fabric. There was some waste with the flying geese units on this one, but did it go into the trash???? NOOOOOOOO Remember those scraps cost the same as all the rest of the fabric, so hang on to em.
I've got some fun things you can do with them, coming up in February.
But that is another post all in itself. I wish I could tell you more, but you know what they say... If I told you I would have to kill you!! :-) :-)
Just remember don't throw a thread away.
Really, I mean it.
Your gonna be very surprised... February isn't that far away!
So on that note, I want to leave you with this thought...
If I, a visual person, who finds thinking outside the box a challenge can do it, you can too.
So grab a pattern, something from your stash, and see what treasure you can create.
Oh yeah, be sure to show us. You know we all want to see,
it's that visual thing again!
What are you waiting for...
And have a blessed Holiday Season!
