Not much to blog about as I’ve been busy doing Christmas sewing.  I thought I would show you the Aunt Millie’s block that I finished about a month ago but just haven’t had time to post about it.  This is the last one in the group of 12.  Now to start on the borders.
This is what all the blocks look like together. I’m not sure they will end up in this order. The big decision is the border. Should I use the same background material for the border? And should I also use it for the sashing? Or should I do something different, like a red or teal? Maybe I’ll put a narrow border in one of those colors, use no sashing, then use the background fabric for the wider border with the applique. What would you suggest?

REMEMBER: All Christmas fabric is 20% off at the Attic Window Quilt Shop. All Fat Quarters of Christmas fabrics are $1.50 $1.75 (Sorry I made a mistake).

Most members of the Knotty Girls Stitching Bee have attended one of Edyta Sitar’s classes. With envy I listen as they discuss their awesome experiences. Stephanie at Peas and a Pod blog recently attended a book signing and discussion at Quilts At The Marshall House in Marshall, Michigan and shared some of what she learned that day. Be sure and read Stepanie’s blog post about it. Read all the way down so you don't miss the tips they learned.

Elowezil has a cute Christmas Coaster tutorial for you.

Stay Positive!

Absolutely STUNNING! I have enjoyed seeing each and every block as you've stitched along and I look forward to seeing the rest of the steps along the way.
