Is it too early to start thinking about Christmas!! I seem to me moving into a stitching phase, and I've been thinking a lot about doing a redwork project. I've settled on a pattern called Winter Wonderland. Country Crafts and Curtains have the patterns on order and I'm starting to prepare a kit box to keep all my supplies in.
Even though this is an older pattern, I like it because it combines a number of hand stitched blocks as the center, then pieced quilt blocks that surround. I also like this project because I can have blocks at the cottage to work on this summer, and I can have blocks at home to work on. The tracing of the line images onto the white fabric will be easy with my Frixion pen.
I was Googling images to get some ideas and ran across three different colors of this pattern that have been made up by quilters and pictures posted to online albums. These are really nice, and I notice some nice touches... (ie - the blue crumb catcher on the binding). They're all gorgeous and I'm really inspired and can't wait to get started.
It appears I have a decision to make before I move on..... What Color to make? I wish I had 2 other buddies to make this along with me. Wouldn't it be fun to see these made up in the 3 colors. I'll decide in a week or so but I'm leaning toward the blue. I start stitching on July 1st. Want to join in on the fun?
