It’s mid Year Christmas sewing this week, according to the throw of the dice, which brought up number 5. These are my Christmas ABC blocks from “Alphabet Noel”, designed by Michelle Ridgeway of Rag-Tag Stitchin’.
With the blocks all trimmed, and the Christmas sashing strips cut, I was all set to go, and started stitching the rows together. The first few rows were looking good, but I wasn’t happy. As I had increased the size of the stitcheries, this quilt was going to be much bigger than I anticipated, almost as wide as our bed. Much too big, I decided.
So sadly, all my sashing is being unpicked, and I will trim the blocks down a little smaller. There was no good carrying on, I decided, knowing I wasn’t happy, better to stop now and do something about it. Hopefully by the end of the week, I’ll have something more to show you.
