A little more sewing

Just managed to squeeze in a little more sewing today.  I should have been sewing my Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilt but because I spent yesterday working on the windcheater for my niece I decided that I better get back to my Christmas quilt - which I first showed you here. This will have to count as my Scrappy Sunday efforts this week!  I started this at the quilt retreat I went to last weekend and it is really a scrap quilt as I am using up all my bits and pieces of favourite Christmas fabrics and have only bought about four salt dye fabrics as I needn't a couple of plains to take away just in case.  The stars I am making are definitely scrap stars and I love em!  These are today's effort.  I really like all of them this
 but it is the little details that make some stand out from the others.  All I had of this Santa fabric was this 2 1/2" square so I was so pleased to be able to use it in this!
These are the stars I had already done! 
There are still quite a few to do - tomorrow's job I guess. 

Till next time..........happy stitching!


  1. Very pretty Christmas blocks - you will have gorgeous Christmas quilt when done!

  2. Your Christmas stars are lovely. I know what you mean about the little touches like your Santa. I have felt the same way with some of my bow ties, which I have fussy cut little touches. It makes it kind of fun.

  3. You mean you can actually use up ALL of a fabric?! ;) Very nicely done!


  4. I love your scrappy stars. I had some of that santa fabric but I think I used it all up. It made a beautiful back on a Christmas quilt. Can not wait to see some more of your stars.

  5. What a great idea for using up Christmas scraps!

  6. You are doing great getting so much done this early. Love the fabrics.
