I decided to cut all the pieces and sew one wreath at a time, instead of strip piecing each block component three times. I felt much happier working this way, although it took a little figuring to get the instructions re-organized in my mind in order to sew this way.
This is my sewing table with one block's pieces on the cutting mat to the left, one block being sewn beside the machine, and the red spool leader/ender blocks waiting to go under the needle between pieces as needed.
Aren't these wreaths adorable?
I couldn't decide if I like the bows at the top of the block or the bottom? To see more Deckade the Halls blocks, visit the Flickr group.
The last blocks will be posted at the beginning of September, so I have one more week to finish step #8 (which are the tree blocks).
Thanks again to the Fat Quarter Shop for this wonderful (free!) quilt project!
