I am finished with stage 1 of my Hideaway quilt.
I still need to sash it and add the borders
and then hand quilt and bind it.
I am using the "Hot Cross Buns" pattern
from the Schnibbles Times Two book.
This Hideaway fabric with the coo coo clocks,
tiny deer, and chalets in the Alps,
just reminds me so much of Germany.
Maybe that's why I love it so much.
This pattern has made me realize (once again)
that I can not expect perfection.
I've had to embrace the "wonkiness".
My lovely Hot Cross Buns are more of a "hot mess"
or if you prefer...
"My Tyrolean Train Wreck".
I'm showing the photo from a distance
so you can't easily see the severe "wonk factor".
I dream of a day where every intersection
of my quilts will meet........
(it could happen...right?)
In the meantime I will just enjoy the process.
And for some reason I really love
these little piles of fabric goodness
that come from squaring up my blocks.....
maybe it's just me?
And I thought I'd share this little Christmas house
that I stitched last night :)
And for those of you that are playing along
or just following along with the After Christmas Sew Along,
be sure to check out the flickr group for week #3.
There is some serious crafty goodness happening over there!
I've bookmarked a few fun projects myself :)
