A Glance at My Christmas Swap top
Maureen recommended a book called "A Single Thread" by Marie Bostwick. It is a fabulous book! From there I follow Marie's website and joined in on the forum "Quilting Stuff" where Maureen started a Christmas block swap with the author. What great fun! Books and Quilting.... =)
My block is the nutcracker. Here is the top so far. I need to fix row 4; it's a little off and then sew them together. Next I will add borders. I'm thinking a small in green or black then a large in red/cream check.
The small 4" squares are little Christmas blocks from Craft and Bits when Maureen, Pam and I went roaming for the afternoon. She kept sneaking items of FABRIC into my basket because I wasnt allowed to leave with nothing. Thanks Maureen! These worked out lovely.
