Countdown to Christmas

Production has started here on Temecula's "Countdown to Christmas". I am using some reds from my friend Barb and background scraps from my UFO of the month - 3 Sister's Grace. My "Sweet Baby Jayne" Featherweight is doing an awesome job on piecing these tiny blocks.


I am making my flying geese units in a different way than the instructions recommend because my scraps are too small to use that technique.





These 2" blocks are so darn cute! Good thing that I am enjoying them because I need to make 22 more of them!

Wow! They look great! I don't think I could work with such small bits of fabric.

Love your little flying geese... my honey loves that term when I talk about making them... love more your featherweight! I hope to have one myself one day... for now I will use my sweet Janome and be happy though... thanks for sharing your project and love a tute on how to make these little flying geese without so many flippy corners to waste!

Oh, I am so glad I can watch you make this one for me!! : )
I am having to forego this one due to time constraints, but it looks delightful--just up our "tiny" alley!

tiny blocks, and Christmas? Do we really have to think about it?

Love your header quilt and white featherweight.

Your blocks are so cute. I am so tempted to join in this sewalong, although I told myself I wasn't starting anything else(apart from Christmas sewing!). I'd better hurry and make a decision!
