After my huge surge of productivity at retreat, I have basically sat on my arse and done nothing to progress the Christmas present crafting. But yesterday, I had a day off work and opted to neglect all housework to get down to some business.
Time to do some dreaded basting! I used my handy dandy 505 + dumbell method.
Soon enough, I had basted my 3 quilt tops from retreat:
And then for no good reason whatsoever, I decided I needed to piece myself a Christmas table topper. This shows how much I suck at time management.....clock is ticking on holiday gifts but I opt to start a new thing for me. But I got inspired and couldn't help myself.
So this became this:
And in the wee hours of the night, here is what I ended up with. I so love the result!
This finished up at 22" square, and has 185 pieces! Inspiration was here, and decided to add neutral squares as the back drop after the fun I had making the sprout blocks for Tracey. It is going to be our coffee table topper over the holidays. I am thinking I may cut it to be round instead of square? And am thinking about quitting....suggestions???
See you all at WIP Wednesday!
