Its Beginning to look a lot like Christmas. . . .Design Wall Monday
SewCalGal is hosting a Christmas quilt show and I wanted to enter it. Plus I've been saying for the last 3 years that I need to do a decent Christmas wall hanging for the house. You would thing that a quilter could manage to have some decent decorations that she has sewn up during the holidays wouldn't ya??
Sooooo, of course I didn't have an idea of what I wanted - I just knew that I wanted it to be a bit artsy - a bit classy and not toooo cutesy!! I did some surfing and found a pattern that I liked, but it was just a tad too twee for me. So I spent the after noon tweaking it since of course 'cause ya know I've never found a pattern that I didn't want to change in some way. Here is the finished sketch.
In old news, I did manage to come VERY close to finish hand quilting my quilt --- should finish that up this week with all of the new shows coming on. Between the fair, a head cold and working everyday this week nothing got done. Still things are slowing down so maybe I'll manage to finish up some of these projects!
