Christmas Quilt as You Go Table Topper

I had a Christmas stitchery from a few years ago so I decided to try and make a  quilt as you go Table Topper.
My first attempt was quick and easy,I just started by cutting my stitchery block into hexagon shape then I just added the fabric in a log cabin sequence.



Happy stitching........

Stitching with Friends and Bucilla Christmas Stockings.

Stitching with Sue, Anna and Dawn today, again kept us warm on another very chilly day. 
We began our journey making Bucilla Xmas stockings with Dawn from  Sewmuchtoquilt  as our teacher. We were so excited to start this new adventure with Dawn at the helm.....hehe. 
Again I forgot to take photos but the ladies just asked me to post mine until next lesson as we will have lots more done.







Also Dawn finished her beautiful jewellery keep.



We missed Kaye today but look forward to her joining us again for our next stitching day and lessons on Bucilla felt kits with Dawn.
