Christmas QAL and Challenge
Good morning from a very cold east coast , we are bracing for our first major winter storm tomorrow , lots of snow and lots of wind and it is mighty cold out there , not the norm for us for December but it does help put us in the Christmas spirit , I love a white Christmas :-)
Away back in June I joined in on the Christmas QAL & challenge with Joanna and Hazel our hostesses and our challenge was presented by Sue . I love a challenge and this one involved making a Christmas project with specific measurements that did not have any red or green , now that is quite the challenge but I was up for it or so I thought ;-) I went to my stash of Christmas fabrics which is not that large to begin with and the only thing I found was some pink and blue fabrics both with snowflakes , ok , that will work ,so off I went to make my block for that month . I did not have a lot of either fabric so I chose to make a block I felt I could work into a runner and each month I added to this challenge in someway. The end result was to measure no more than 96" and could be any shape as long as the outside measurements did not exceed this total . Did I manage to do that , well I was over by 1/2" or slighlty less , I measured but did not have my camera handy and I meant to go back and take that picture but I completely forgot and I mailed it off this week. I had taken a picture of the runner a while ago when I finished the quilting but did not realize I needed to measure until later and did not retake that photo.
Thanks for stopping by today and if you are in the path of the storm stay safe , warm and cosy inside where you can sew to your hearts content.
