Deck The Halls


When I shared the start of my brimfield blocks project a while back, someone pointed out that my all green blocks kind of look like Christmas wreaths. Hmmm... maybe it's true, or perhaps at this time of year, everything seems to remind you that there are only so many shopping days left before the big day of peace and love is upon us. In any case, I thought it would be fun to share the progress of my holiday boughs and let you decide.


As I had shared before, I've had it in my head for a long time to make an all green quilt. As usual, I really don't know how large I'll make this, but it would seem that I simply can't do small. The background is actually quite large, with an unfinished size of 16.5". I suppose I can trim them down later if needed, but it seemed like a good starting size.


This sweet daisy fabric has been in my stash for so long... waiting to be used before it landed in the "never-use-it... put it in the destash pile". I'm so glad I didn't give up on her, because I think she's finally found her project to really shine.


So, just think of these green wreaths as my way of wishing you the brightest, warmest, and merriest Christmas ever!

  3. I love the little daisies! And all the different greens are just wonderful together. It says "spring" to me more than "Christmas" but if you add big red bows at some point, that might change my mind :)

  6. I agree, it might just be the season implying this wreath idea. Unbiased I see more spring :) And yes the blocks are big, I was surprised when I saw them in real life, but I love the big background and breathing room around them.

    A merry Christmas to you and the "boys" too!
