When Lorna featured this door banner the other day on her blog http://sewfreshquilts.blogspot.com/2015/11/santas-reindeer-blocks-for-100-blocks.html
I had to make it! I picked up the Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks magazine yesterday and immediately started cutting. I actually made two--it is just as easy to cut for two at the same time. They are both ready for me to bind tonight while watching the Sunday night football game for Slow Sunday Stitching http://kathysquilts.blogspot.com
I decided to try quilting them with Lorna's suggestion of organic wavy lines and it was very easy and quick.
The backing is an oldie from stash that has all kinds of animals. The candy cane stripe is from Joann's and is not the best quality, but I decided to use it anyway.
This morning I hand sewed the binding down on my niece's birthday banner.
It is already to be mailed.
Last year, I cross stitched this quilt block sampler that was featured on Little Miss Shabby's blog. Donna found the link for me http://corianderquilts.com/quilty-stitches/I plan on framing this for my sewing room, but I have been itching to start another cross stitching project.
I have prepped everything for this sheep. It is a companion pattern to a cow and pig I think I made back when I was a newlywed. I figured I would get this done before any other cross stitch project. I am off to make dinner and stitch the night away!
