When I finished the paper piecing for the two knights, I vowed that I was not going to do any paper piecing for the rest of the year. Funny how life has a way of changing your mind. On Monday I saw
these beautiful blocks in my Flickr stream. They linked to a Christmas QAL at Sewing under Rainbow blog. Each two days, a new block will be posted for a Christmas Sampler.
This evening, after dinner I sat down in my sewing room, hauled out my Christmas fabrics and completed Block 1 - Christmas Trees. It was a very clear easily pieced pattern. Just as I finished it, Block 2 - Bell, was posted. Guess what I may be working on tomorrow night.
Why I feel the need to make a Christmas themed quilt, I don't know. It certainly doesn't get cold enough here in New Zealand with our summer Christmas to warrant the need for one. It will use a lot of my Christmas fabric stash (that's a good thing though) and probably my low volumes too. Maybe I'll turn them into Christmas placemats or pillow covers - probably in time for next years Christmas. I can't wait to see them all together though.
