Starting my second Tis the Season

I've been visiting my favourite quilt shop and bought the extra bits I need to make up the bag from Tis the Season and I've got some great fabric to do some more stitcheries on - have decided to do the stitching in a variegated green.  I'll get some blocks together and then decide on borders.

It is so cold and miserable here today that it is really weather for quilting a very big quilt rather than stitching tiny single layers, but I'll make do.

3 of my children have Scouts tonight and one has Guides.  It is going to be so cold!!

Glad to hear you are joining ups Marg. You'll have blocks whipped up in now time. I'm using verigated thread too and it stitches up lovely. Look forward to seeing your blocks.
