December is well and truly upon us and with it comes all the hoopla that the holiday season entails. There has been much end of school year celebration and even preparation for the 2011 school year (already!) as well as the usual Christmas partying and organising. All this has left just a little time for sewing:
Thank goodness for the sanity and serenity that sewing brings me! This simple quilt top is made from 4 1/2 inch squares arranged in a traditional "Trip Around the World" style patchwork design. Really very easy sewing, but just what is needed at this time of the year.
Some fussy cutting was required which in this instance was unfortunately rather wasteful of the remaining fabric, although of course nothing has been relegated to the rubbish bin. No scrap is too small ...
All printed fabrics used are from the recently released fabric collection called Sanctuary by Patty Young (see also Sunday Stash #79 - here). The solid white fabric is Kona Cotton in White.
