WIP Wednesday – Christmas Edition

Today I am just going to share a little bit of the work in progress that’s been happening this week. I can’t believe Christmas is so soon! It really is the most wonderful time of the year. :-)

I have finished the design for my next quilting tutorial, which I’m calling “Sea of Squares.” I love the combo of crisp blue and white – especially in the winter. Now that I’ve finally gotten the hang of EQ7, I plan on designing all my quilts this way – the possibilities are endless!

Sea of Squares

I will post the supply list next week, right after Christmas, so you will have something to look forward to after your holiday festivities are over!

Next, we’ve been like busy little elves around here wrapping presents as soon as we get them. The kids helped me wrap for the first time this year and they quite enjoyed it. We made pretty good timing of it too, as we are usually doing this the night before, LOL!!

Christmas Wrapping

And finally, I just had to share a picture of  this adorable Nativity Scene that my daughter made with her girls’ activity days group (sort of like girl scouts at church). It helps remind me of the reason for the season. :-)

Nativity

Yes – it’s made from graham crackers and candy and is quite edible – though she won’t dare let us think of it! (My favorites are the animal crackers and the licorice shepherds’ canes.)

    This looks like a project for me. I sure like the pattern. I need more practice making accurate 1/4 in. seams. Keep me posted. I am looking forward to this.

    That nativity is absolutely precious. Your daughter is talented for sure! Looking forward to the tutorial after the festivities…I am hoping to get my sewist mojo back by then! Thank you!

    Tell your daughter the nativity is very cute. I love the new tutorial quilt. The center squares could be an “I spy” quilt or if you used 2 squares of each fabric, a matching game for kids.
