Christmas in August

For my first sewing party, I’d say that I was relatively successful!  I had so much fun keeping up with everyone’s progress throughout the day, on Kelly’s blog.  I only posted twice…my first post and my progress post.  The day was a busy one…  But even with only 1 post, I did manage to win a prize…and I didn’t even know that there were prizes!  Carol gave away a copy of the Fast & Furious Holiday Quilt as you Go by G.E. Designs.

This was on my wish list so I’m extra thrilled to have won a copy.  Thank you so much Carol!

This morning I did manage to finish sewing and ironing all of my blocks.  I will say…1/2 square triangles are not my forte…as so many of these are not the right size, so it will be interesting to say the least when I go to sew them together!imagine sample layoutWhat do you think?  I’m really tempted to cut them all down from 9” to 8.5”…
