Welcome to the North Pole

I saw this quilt I thought it was so cute.  I brought it as BOM from Angels in Gumboots and there BOM is done in applique.  My plan it to do it in applique and maybe needle turn.  When I open the book, well lets just say I was absolutely overwhelm.  A lot of the pieces are very small so thus my decision to do it as an applique.  I’ve just started one block and intend to complete the more easier ones first.  Lucky, I don’t have to do fabric selection as that hard work has been done for me.  Here are the fabric selections for The Marble House, Welcome, Reindeer Barn and the completed Block Star

Ok this is the first day of my holidays (yeah!!!!) and I have so much to do.  I’m currently doing a course at university and this starts today.  I have also commenced a number of quilts despite not finishing some already.  But I do have a good reason for starting some of them.  The first one is that this quilt, Lynette Anderson’s A Dog’s Life, is a baby blanket for a friend I know.  Yes a dog design blanket for a baby blanket – crazy but it will be perfect.  I had spotted a new quilt called Welcome to the North Pole and I am doing it with other ladies who are online as a stitch-a-long where we show our work by the last Wednesday of each month.  I’m doing my quilt through Angels in Gumboots and am doing it in applique with a small number of needle turning.  The quilt looks quiet challenging.  If you have this quilt and wish to join in click here to direct you to the site.
