But...... I got so excited that I started getting the fabrics together (even though my month is not until December hehe) and wanted to make one of the blocks as an example. I really want each tree to be different sizes and to look different, atleast that is what I have in mind but until I start sewing who knows what will happen.
For example this was my first time trying the "fan" and I am really happy with it but the tree ended up being really big. Also I think now that I will make the rest of the blocks with brown tree trunks so I will either unpick this one and add in a brown one or use it for the back of the quilt. Oh and each block will be 12".
I think I am too excited to wait for my month and I am going to try it all by myself. I have plenty of time.....right? So it is official I started a Christmas Quilt today! We will see how it goes since I am almost 8 months preggers and don't know how long I can keep up the sewing because this other WIP that I have started really needs to come first.
Here are all the fabrics from my stash that I have collected. I will try to just use these so that I don't have to buy anything except the back of the quilt which I would love to find an awesome red dot for.
I also read on someones blog (does anyone know who it was??) that they started keeping their WIP's in plastic containers. I thought that was a great idea to keep it all together and since I already keep all of my fabrics in containers it would all go nicely.
I think I will try to make a block every couple of days and see how it all goes. Wish me luck!
