I was bored of green and beige, although that is the colour of my sister-in-law's rec room, and I just had to throw in some red, and a sprinkle of blue and now I like it much better. This is not the final layout yet but getting closer!
I have a nice flannel for the backing, and have searched the stash for border and binding fabric but don't have anything I like, so I will have to take a quick trip to the quilt store.
I got a little carried away with these 'H' blocks. I originally saw the pattern on the Golden Thimble website, and then I saw a post by Barb on the Fun with Barb and Mary blog.
I started making smaller 'H' blocks in a 3" size and added the 'O' blocks to make the 'HO HO' and added a fussy cut Santa block for a fun Christmas placemat. We are supposed to bring Christmas placemats to guild meeting this week, so I'll have a couple of these to contribute. I used up a lot of small scraps of my Christmas fabric to make these blocks!
And then I got the urge to try to make the blocks even smaller...
The 'H' and 'O' blocks at the top of this wall hanging are 3" and the smaller 'H' and 'O's are 1 1/2". These two quilts are difficult to photograph because of all the gold in the fabrics, but I think you get the idea of how they turned out.
Why not make yourself a little 'Ho Ho' for Christmas?!?
