One Garland border section is complete, so I’ve just go to finish trimming corners on the other blocks so I can get the all stitched together. And need to get the plain borders cut so everything will be ready to stitch together. I’d hoped to get it assembled today but since it’s the last day of vacation for me, I may need to actually clean up some of the mess I’ve made and do some laundry so I have something to wear to work tomorrow! Then again – there has to be something in that closet so I may just sew! 🙂
Here’s what one of the garland borders looks like.
As I was digging through the stash looking for fabrics for this quilt (yep they all came from the stash!) I came across this lovely poinsettia print that I bought on sale at the end of the season last year. The colors are actually much deeper and richer than the photo shows – I just love this fabric. It think I may use it for the final outside border on this quilt.
The pattern for Wreaths & Garland was sent off to EQ today. So I’ll post when they have done their “stuff” with it and it is available for sale. It’s super easy piecing and I think just one of the wreath blocks would make a lovely table topper. Put a pretty pillar candle in the center of it and it would be a great centerpiece for anyone’s table.
I didn’t get as much sewing done as I wanted yesterday because I was busy getting another pattern ready for EQ Boutique. Deck the Halls will be available there soon too.
Those who know me will wonder at the “pinky” shades in this quilt since they know I have an aversion to pink. LOL Don’t know that I would make it in pinks for myself but I like the frosty look it gives this design.
If you’ve been wondering about what EQ Boutique is all about – I added a page in the right side bar that has some screen shots and information about it — or check out their website for more info on how it works. It’s the only place you’ll find my patterns for sale and if you’ve missed out on some of the BOM or other free patterns that are no longer available on my blog, you just may find them there. New ones are being added all the time by all the EQ Boutique designers.
Now, I haven’t had anything but coffee to sustain me so far and those sweet rolls I made yesterday are calling to me. (I did taste test one yesterday and they are delicious!).
Oh – and I also updated the GH (Granny’s Hankie BOM) readers page with some photos I hadn’t gotten added previously of blocks made by blog readers. There are going to be some stunning quilts from that design as the photo show so check them out.
Denise… who’s wishing she had scheduled off a few more vacation days!!
