I know you’ll be receiving your copy of A Country’s Call very soon but we’ll enjoy the quilts and stories until after Christmas. Bonnie’s mystery is coming up, too, and I don’t want to miss that! So let’s sew up a quick Christmas door banner or wall hanging.
When we were actively designing patterns we always had to start somewhere – it was not possible to get it right the first time. We had a good laugh today as we studied the quilts that I have compared to the picture of the quilt on the cover of the pattern. Haha! The joke is on me! As I was pointing out the parts of the quilts that I didn’t like Connie glanced at the photo and sure enough I do not own the original. SOLD! Along with all the other quilts! Huge surprise and now I want to remake 2 of the 3 quilts.
NOEL. 14” x 22” Price $5.00
Fused letters on a pieced background with triangle square border. Here is the quilt after some revisions.
Here is my quilt. I hate that 3rd background rectangle – it’s too dark. First try.
It also doesn’t have the triangle square border. Duh.
Uncle Santa 18” x 31” Price $5.00
This is a rotary only pattern – no appliqué – a great door banner. Here’s the original on the left and the remake on the right.
O Holy Night 20” x 40” Price $10.00
This is easy appliqué which could be fused. Here is the original that I have.
Here is the finalized quilt – much better! Look at the fabric choices as well as the star which gained an inner star. This quilt really should have a spacer on top so the words could be read more easily – plus red is the wrong color. Why didn’t I use a light color? Wish I had this original quilt.
A SASE envelope is appreciated OR at least include an address label with your order. This address label is for us to use when we prepare your pattern for mailing. We don’t want it stuck to the paper you’ve written your order on! It’s lots of work to address all the orders – please help us. Think about it – most of you “get it” but there’s a few of you who just haven’t thought this through.
And now a Tribe report. I let them outside this morning and they covered a lot of ground during the day. They’re now in the barn for the night and we’ll start again tomorrow. It took me an hour of slowly walking them around the barn a couple times until they found the door!
