"Tis the Season" Started!

I am now on Holidays for 2 weeks so I got
to cut up my new fabric yesterday.....

After some chopping and changing I settled on this layout
for "Tis the Season"

All redy to sew the borders on and then I will trace the stitchery designs onto each block......There didn't seem to be a lot of room around the stitching so I have opted to do it this way....

Even the scraps look yummy all piled up!
Until next time, Happy Stitching

You're brave. I'd be afraid to sew the borders on first in case I messed up my stitchery. I thought those light center blocks looked to small for a hoop.I know you're anxious to get started and the fabric is going to be super.

I wish I had cut all my strips first and then I would have had an idea of how it would look finished. With the muted reds and greens yours will look lovely.

Welcome! These are so fun to stitch! I'm pacing myself so I don't finish too soon. I like your fabric choices :)

I like your layout. Will you be having straight box or will they be a bit wonky?

The blocks will be straight, they are not sewn yet......
