On New Year's Day Quiltbug offered a free mystery quilt pattern. It's important to start the year off on the right track, so of course I started this new quilt with one of my sewing groups.
We enjoyed some visiting, sewing, and festivities. One of the quilters brought us snacks and her napkins said: "Wise men brought gold, frankincense, and myrrh. Wise women brought wine."
There were a lot of HST's to make in this project and we didn't have enough time to finish our tops that day, but mine is now finished. I made the door hanging version (there is also a tablerunner version) and am eager to quilt this.
I pieced some batting scraps together, and found a hunk of old fabric I don't really like to use for a backing. Now I am pin basting the three layers together using my favorite "Kwik Klip" tool.
