I'll tell you
A couple of weeks ago I got the bug to try some freestyle stack-n-slash Christmas trees like those made by The Polka Dot Chicken.
In a search for more variety in my "Christmas" drawer, I came across some more elegant fabrics in creams and golds. I thought it might be fun to make an "elegant" throw.
Not particularly impressed at this point, but still needing variety in my trees, I continued to make them, thinking I'd just make one larger quilt with whatever I could make with the materials at hand.
But the combination of white backgrounds with cream and the juxtaposition of elegance with cute Christmas schtick bothered me.
My ultimate decision was to separate the creams from the whites and make two quilts.
And that is what I was thinking.
Hop over to Quilting is more fun than housework to see what scrappy projects other quilters are working on.
