CHRISTMAS ALREADY

Why is it that summer takes it sweet time coming, but before we know it, Christmas is here? BasicGrey has been a favourite designer for years, and this is the new Christmas line called Blitzen for Moda. The teals and grey are such a nice combination. There is some red and green as well. The background fabric is so gorgeous!


I am working on a simple quilt that will feature the fabrics more than the piecing. Not everything has to be a lot of work to be nice. This will be for the Moda club at Katja's in September.

I worked on #26 of the hex-a-long


and this block is for the heal @ do.Good stitches group.  One of the group members has a co-worker who has been diagnosed with an aggressive type of cancer. We are making blocks for a quilt for her.


She asked for wonky stars in happy colours : )

The sun is finally shining so I hope to sit out and work on my hexies this week.
Happy stitching.

I like Basic Grey fabrics as well - they do a great job with Christmas collections! The string quilt on your blog header is absolutely gorgeous! Very happy to have found your blog.

The colors of your hexies are great! I have a slight obsession with hexagons at the moment.

I am very fond of Basic Grey, too and this Christmas line is so pretty. I'm looking forward to seeing what you make with it.

Oooh, block 26 might be my favorite hex-along block so far! The blitzen fabric looks like a lot of fun - I've got my eye on it for a Christmas project later this year.
