Christmas Around the World

Hello! I hope you all had a sew crafty weekend and are enjoying your first days of fall! It kind of feels like summer around here these last couple days except the cool temps in the mornings. I was busy, busy all weekend long and finished all of my microwave bowl cozies. I just love how they look all stacked up! :)

I am so excited that I received my last bee block in the mail this week. Now I need to make 2 more blocks to get my 4x4 layout and figure out my fabric choices for borders, backing and binding. I was originally going to add sashing between the blocks but I have decided, thanks to some input from other quilters, to skip it. I think it would take away from the scrapiness and the pattern itself. Without the sashing, this is going to look cooler than I even imagined! I'm calling this quilt "Christmas Around the World" because some of these blocks came from overseas. I love that! :)

I have made great progress on my "secret" quilt. There are 15 rows and I have pieced and pressed all of them. Now I just need to sew them together and get the backing ready to go. I'm going to quilt this with a spiral which I've never done before but I think it will look really cool. I can't wait to show you pictures! To get your imagination going, the quilt is called "Technicolor Dreams." Hmmm...

I'm linking up today to Sew Fresh Quilts and Freshly Pieced.
