I subscribe to Quilters Newsletter magazine.
They had a ‘good deal’ on their subscription last year, and so I treated myself to a one year term. It has proven to be a good read as well as a good deal. The most recent issue had a foundation pieced Christmas tree that caught my eye.
I decided to download the weekly patterns, and use the Christmas fabrics in my stash – of which I have quite a few acquired over the years.
They will all work – I hope.
For the past few weeks I have been foundation piecing like mad.
It is a messy business!!
It’s made me search out some small prints and not use the bigger ones in this project.
But the results are fun!
I have been searching out some very tiny ‘conversation’ prints:
And I have been sewing with Aurifil Ne 40 (the green spool). For me it has the strength to cope with patterns printed on paper.
I hope to be able to show the completed top by the end of the year. I guess this means I have started another project – darn!
