Actually, I also made a mistake with the first block too! As I don't have any metric quilting rulers I was converting the cm dimensions into inches which is fine, except that I was so concentrated on making sure that I made an accurate conversion, I forgot to add on the seam allowances! I am not sure yet how I will piece the different sized blocks together but I am sure I can make it work!!
The third block is a very sweet reindeer design by Gail Pan. Isn't he adorable? I finished stitching him last night. A very pretty little stitchery and some appliqued holly.... perfect!
I'm looking forward to the last block now so that I can get the quilt finished and quilted in time to hang up with my other decorations!
I am linking this post to the last 'Patchwork with Stitchery' SAL link up over at Martina's blog, 'Sunshine Quilting'. I haven't linked up every month but I have really enjoyed the sew-a-long.... thank you very much Martina!
Your blocks are lovely.ReplyDelete
I love the red border around it.
Wunder-wunderschön, Danke für die Links, ich werde mich sofort damit beschäftigen!ReplyDelete
Ich liebe diese Kombinationen aus Gepatchtem, Gesticktem und Aplikationen. Wunder-wunderschön deine Arbeiten liebe Christine, ich bin hin und weg.ReplyDelete
Jetzt sehe ich mir mal die Links an, Weihnachten kommt ja schließlich jedes Jahr.
Liebe Grüße und eine schöne Adventszeit wünscht dir
What beautiful work! I'm enjoying seeing Christmas things being crafted. Maybe it will inspire me.ReplyDelete
Oh ow wonderful! Love your version of the blocks and I am sure you will find a good way to put them all together. Look Forward to see it soon, hugs martinaReplyDelete
So sweet and well done ! :o))ReplyDelete
I have some puzzeling with te second block too
for fit it all between te trees ( pffff...) :o)
das sind ja wieder zauberhafte Stickereien. Das Rentier von Gail Pan gefällt mir besonders gut, da bekomme ich direkt wieder Lust, etwas zu sticken.
Du hast schon wieder alles ferrtig! Die sind so wunderbar!ReplyDelete
Beautiful work! I am sure you will sort out those small measurement issues...I often find things like that happen but solving them makes you extra creative :) Love the sweet effects you have created here, it will be such a lovely Christmas quilt.ReplyDelete
Your blocks all look wonderful, Christine. I hadn't even noticed you were a stocking short on block 2. For block 1, you could re-do the red border by making them a little larger. xxReplyDelete
My favourite is the stockings - reminds me of the Grinch (which is my favourite Christmas show). Great fun!ReplyDelete
Beautiful work Christine, xx I received your package, hopefully yours get there soon. xxReplyDelete
So lovely Christine!ReplyDelete
They are all lovely xReplyDelete
These are darling Christine! Thank you for the link. I love the reindeer so much I've decided to scrap the one I started and use Gail's pattern - yay!ReplyDelete
Christine, these are all adorable! (Would a larger border on the first block work? So all of the blocks would be the same size when you sew them all together? I look forward to seeing how your creative mind meets the challenge!)ReplyDelete
These are so cute! Love the charming designs and your beautiful stitching!ReplyDelete
Seriously cute! What fun blocks these are!ReplyDelete
I've been there, with the cm to inches and viceversa thing... although I had all my rulers in cm and the patterns in inches! It was something I fixed quickly - by buying rulers in inches, of course ;-) All the blocks look gorgeous, and your embroidery is so fine! Have a nice weekend, Ariadna.ReplyDelete
You are so fast, you are already up to date, and I bet you will have another beautiful finish just in time for Christmas.ReplyDelete
These are adorable blocks. Your photos show off your many talents - needlework, piecing, appliqué - all well done!ReplyDelete
Thank you! I am really enjoying this project.... hope I an get the quilt finished in time for Christmas! Christine xDelete
