I may not be “Home for the Holidays” this year but that doesn’t mean that’s it’s not PREPPED!! :o) I am talking about Lisa Bongean’s “Home For the Holidays”! This quilt has been on my ‘TO DO LIST’ since I first laid eyes on the pattern…I LOVE IT!!
While the sewing room was still a wool disaster, I thought I would just ‘get ‘er done’ and ‘get ‘er done’ I did!!
As you can see these wool appliques are much simpler than yesterday’s motifs so this didn’t take all that long to do…
Love the chubby thighs on the gingerbread boy!!
This pattern was a JOY to work with, as are all of Lisa Bongean’s patterns! She gives you a cutting pattern, plus a placement pattern! The BONUS is all of the pattern pieces are already reversed! She REALLY knows how to design a pattern!
Now I just need to make the ‘snowball’ blocks, transfer the writing, (which will be a breeze thanks to Lisa’s placement pattern) and glue down these motifs and I will be ready for stitching!! I tell you, Lisa thinks of everything to make a project do-able and user friendly!! No guess work with her patterns!
Today I am cleaning my sewing room!! It looks like a WOOL hurricane with the wind velocity of 4 hit my room! And of course my little furry helper has helped moved these bits and pieces throughout the house! I have my work ‘cut out’ for me! :o)
Have a SUNNY Saturday and Happy Stitching!~P
