On the Design Wall: Scrappy Christmas
Between the Christmas sewing projects and infectious Christmas music my Urban Lattice quilt morphed into the Scrappy Christmas Quilt. No maroon or slate in sight (sorry Honey, the manly version will have to wait).
I finished up the blocks last night. I was aiming for the lap size but I underestimated the amount of white I had in my stash...by about 1.5 yards! Time for another bolt. I have *just* enough for a petite size. It still big enough to cuddle on the couch with Hot Coco and twinkle lights. : )
This is my first time paper piecing and it won't be my last. It is so satisfying pulling off that paper!! This is a great introduction to this technique. Cara's tutorial/quilt along is very well written. If you make one add your pictures to the Urban Lattice Flickr group. Looking at this picture I can see some blocks need to be moved around a little. That's ok, they can marinate on the wall while we have lunch.
Happy Thursday from cold and wet California. : )
