Yep...it's design wall Monday again!
I have been consumed with Christmas activities and travels, which I will tell more about later this week. But last week there were lots of gingerbread people on my design wall.
I first saw the gingerbread block on Jeanne's blog Luv 2 Stitch when she made a pile of potholders while at a quilting retreat. They were so cute, I just had to try making them. I made a 6 1/2" potholder size and then made some smaller 2 3/4" blocks, put them on point, and made a little mini quilt.
These blocks were so much fun to sew, I decided that December's theme of my monthly mini club would be gingerbread.
And here is the design wall...the larger blocks at the top, some mini blocks in the middle, and on the bottom left of the design board you can see one gingerbread mascot sent to the class by Barb's nephew! I hope some of these gingerbread blocks were finished in time to be under some Christmas trees.
If I get any sewing time this week, I be sewing step #5 of Bonnie's mystery and I will get to see how the blocks will look...can't wait! Come by later this week to see what new quilting store I visited over the holidays!
