Yesterday I woke up with the return of my flu or a new one, I seem to be a flu magnet;)
So, I had no energy or ambition to finish my punch needle. When it comes to redo's and fixes, I need a clear head or I will just make it worse.
I decided I wanted to applique something, since that was simple and something I can do in my chair.
I had an idea for a Christmas quilt and couldn't find any patterns that fit my needs, so decided to go for it and make my own.
I used trees from a pattern by Lori Smith, it has lots of fun and different trees, so great for this project.
I used my brushed cotton homespun for the backing and going with green and red trees. Then I decided it would look good with sashing, so this is a red and green fabric, I thought would look nice with it, what do you think? Either that or a darker brown sashing, was trying to use what I have. I am planning on doing every other block with a tree, so not sure if I should use a solid block, wonky stripes or a design, another thing to think about.
PS: The tree appliques are not wonky on the pattern, that is just the way they come out, by the time I get through sewing them;)
