The update: Based on the loop cycle, I knew that I would be receiving Leona's Christmas block first. This excited me to no end, as I LOVE seasonal decorations...especially of the fabric kind. Although her starter block was in creams with deep reds and gold flecks, she explained that our blocks did not have to follow her color scheme. She would like the blocks to be composed of modern Christmas fabrics. Any color. Any design.
|Leona's Starter Block. Seriously, so beautiful in person.|
I just received the Modern Blocks book in the mail and just knew I wanted to do the Pinwheel design in the Christmas fabrics. My thought was to make it look like the snowy pinwheel in the middle of a Christmas forest. See, there is some method behind my madness.
After some mismatched sewing, seam ripping, and googling "needle turn applique," I had my block.
|A little bit of applique, a little bit of cutting, a whole lot of cheer!|
|And now they are off to New York!|
