|Yes, that is Christmas fabric. It isn't a Christmas quilt, but I couldn't resist using my little half square triangels left over from my Iowa (Carolina) Christmas. There is also some Christmas fabric in the string blocks, but hopefully the over all effect will not be Christmas. I have all the steps done now as far as making the components, except for adding the triangles to make the trapezoids (I think) for the borders. It's definitely scrappy, and only 14 of these to go. That's sure easier than 29 more to go. This block was rather wavy, but I was able to press it pretty flat. Hopefully, I'll do better on the others. |
Ooops! I just realized that the browns are supposed to match, too (in addition to the greens). I'm too far on this block to redo it, so I guess I'll have 10 that are correct, 1 that's really wrong, and 4 that are sort of wrong. Oh well. If I were a perfectionist I'd make 16, but I think that it'll just be unique (or so I tell myself).
