Two quick things tonight. First, I am happy to announce the winner of the EZ Dresden Template. And the winner is Marjorie! I've contacted her by e-mail to let her know I'll be sending her this fabulous little tool.
I wanted to THANK everyone who commented on my blog and who was inspired by my Dresden project. I have tried to respond to everyone but I haven't quite had a chance yet. You should be hearing from me soon. This blog hop was so much fun ~ and please stay tuned, I'll be back in February with Hugs & Kisses - another fun Mdm Samm blog hop.
And on another festive note, I'm thrilled to show finished pictures of my Christmas quilt - "A Very Hexie Christmas." I don't view this as a late finish for 2012, I choose to believe I am WAY ahead of the game for 2013 :)
I just got it back from the long armer yesterday and I couldn't WAIT to bind it and show it to you. I previously blogged about it here and here so I won't beat a dead horse, but I am so relieved it's done. This was my first experience with a digitized long arm machine where I picked an all-over snowflake pantograph and voila - back to me in about one week's time. And very affordable, too!! I ran outside in the crazy wind with my hubby to snap a few quick photos of it.
Pattern: Cat Tails from Hexa Go-Go by Tacha Bruecher
Fabrics: 1 1/2 " hexies from the Christmas in July Charm Swap I participated in last year. The
string blocks were made from a variety of Christmas prints this year mainly from
Blitzen by Basic Grey for Moda.
Techniques: EPP Hexagons, Foundation Pieced String Blocks
My kids could care less that it's Christmas fabrics - I think this one will stay on the couch for a while so we can enjoy it a little before I put it away for the holidays!
