Tis the Season done and GJ is quilted

So excited to show you my first three blocks of Tis the Season. I am pleased they are ready in plenty of time though I really enjoyed stitching them. Using one colour is so easy. I am using red fabrics from my stash to piece this quilt.


I also went to Robyn, my lovely quilter, to pick up my Gardener's journal quilt this week too. Now it needs a little hand quilting in the stitcheries and then binding and the label and it will be finished.
