Only a couple more weeks and it´s Christmas! I´m already in the "advent" mood as we call it here, decorating my appartement, drinking tea and adding one or two cookies, visiting advent markets, hhmmmm, I love that mood - and as for the sewing I am now doing my first Christmas Quilt - a design by Linda Lum Debond, a free download pattern by allpeoplequilt, called "Festival of Trees".
As I am not that bold with colors (yet) I took a light brown-beige fabric instead of the yellow in the pattern and I love it. I did all the appliquéing with fusibel web, it´s like doing a puzzle, adding up all the different cuts until it´s a christmas tree. I will now quilt all the parts, fix the yo-yo´s with a silver or golden button (instead of appliquéing colored circles) before I sew the blocks together, adding the strips in between. Pictures about that to follow next week!
