Temecula Quilt Company's We Wish You a Mini Christmas sew-a-long was a fun diversion during end of semester grading. I posted my grades Saturday and finished the final blocks and put it together Sunday.
As I said in an earlier post, while Temecula's 2 1/4 inch blocks were cute, 3 inches was cute enough, so I redrafted each to that size.
I adapted one of their settings, cutting the sashing strips 1 3/4 inches, finishing 1 1/4 inches and the cut the borders 3 inches.
I used some of my late neighbor Lorraine's Smithsonian Rising Sun collection quilt fabric for the sashing and borders. It was a bit sun streaked from being on her shelves so I cut around those areas.
