And Put your foot down #78
Welcome to my stop on the hop. This is my 3rd consecutive year participating in Carol’s Virtual Cookie Exchange Blog Hop. Carol from Just Let Me Quilt is the host and creator so be sure to stop by and thank her. As for me, Thank you Carol! for allowing me to participate again this year.
The long Thanksgiving weekend allowed a lot of sewing time and I was able to get caught up and finish my Christmas Tree.
Please scroll to the bottom to find links and the hop schedule.
I had enough Nordic Nature by Island Batik left in these great Christmas colors to pair with their Custard fabric.
First I cut all my patches using AccuQuilt dies. The offset blocks in the top of the photo were paper pieced.
Started stitching them in rows and using large patches of Custard where I could.
Although you can’t tell in the photo, the red patches are puffed blocks for ornaments. That’s why the quilt hangs funny. See my oops?
A Christmas Tree wouldn’t be a Christmas Tree without gifts. Using a fusible I added 2 presents on the left. The truck is a new die from AccuQuilt which I had to modify, I used larger circles for the tires to create big boy tires.
Here it is on the frame, you can see the puffed blocks. To my amazement this was the squarest quilt I have ever made. The puffed blocks were a real concern for me.
Here it is quilted and bound.
Sorry, with all the sewing going on there was no time for cooking. But I do have a very good sugar cookie recipe to share with you.

Given the season Viridian’s blog shard this cute log cabin that reminded me of a candy cane.
Since it the season of giving, Andrée from Quilting & Learning shared a stitcher’s journal she made. Here’s an idea.
