Loving this project!

Whew! I finished the last of the twelve blocks yesterday. This was another fiddly one - with the centre 6" section containing sixty pieces. All the small triangles were again cut from 1.25" strips - I think my eyes were almost crossed at the end.

And because the blocks were done, today I started sewing the first of the three strips together. I just love the floral fabric in the setting triangles, and the border stripes that come with the kit are lovely too. Now that all the tiny pieces are done with, this should all come together much more quickly.

I've managed to complete almost all my Christmas shopping - not bad for two days effort. I only have two things left to get for family plus a couple of things for the kids. Tomorrow I'll have a looky for myself - and then give suitable directions to Marty :-)

Talk soon! x o x

That is going to be drop dead gorgeous. I love the big floral and can hardly wait to see the stripes as well. Looks like you're getting back to normal, I've missed all your sewing posts!

Congratulations on finishing the Christmas shopping so quickly. That's power shopping! =) The blocks are beautiful and I love what you are using for a background. My vision is bad enough without all those little pieces, but I can certainly admire yours!

That looks sooo gorgeous! The floral fabric goes great with the rest, where did you get that?

It's gorgeous. I love the star with the dark red.

Now I wonder what you've added to your Christmas list? Shoes? (grin).

Very fiddly. I can't tell you how much I love that description. Its my new favorite term!

Along with that I'll add that I'm completely in love with the floral setting triangles, too!!!

Merry Christmas Hugs, *karendianne.
