FNSI Christmas Wreath

It's the third Friday of the month, and time for Friday Night Sew In in blogland.  Since I have started packing for moving to a new flat a lot of my quilting stuff has been packed away, however I do need some sewing brakes in between packing.


A new flat means new areas to decorate, and Christmas will be here before we know it, and since I had some bits of green and Christmas fabrics that haven't been packed up, this is what I decided to play with


I have been browsing the internet for an idea for a Christmas wreath quilt - lots of nice options that will look fabulous as part of a sampler quilt or something similar, but nothing that spoke to me to be a one block wall hanging... But then I remembered I had seen something in an old book, Egg Money Quilts by Eleanor Burns.


I had some fun watching an old episode of Inspector Morse while needle turn appliqué the plate down  It's a 10" diameter Dresden plate appliqued to a 12.75" of background fabric. The border is a 2.5" strip. Now to get it quilted and bound, and figure out if I'll embellish it somehow.


 Pop on over to Wendy's place and see what everyone is getting up to this Friday Night Sew In

Hugs and stitches from Anne Ida
