Hmmmm.....not what you might be thinking....but lots of pretty, red fabrics! Just a small sampling of the assortment of fabrics I will be using in something new.
I am having my own Christmas in July (well, it's almost over, but I did start this in July). Bronwyn Hayes of Red Brolly is offering a free pattern called The Wish Quilt on her blog. This is a gorgeous Christmas- themed quilt, with stitchery blocks, applique and patchwork. Seriously, check it out, especially if you love red and white quilts.
I decided to use red wool felt for the appliqued reindeer, stitched with a blanket stitch:
I decided to use red wool felt for the center of the heart appliques, as well.
See? Stocking up on those Christmas fat quarter bundles was a good thing! LOL!
