Today, I have the green leftovers from Carolina Christmas assembled. It still needs a border of the same yellow fabric as the cornerstones. My plan is to bind it with the green stripe fabric used in the sashings and border. I was so lucky to have received bits and pieces of Sarah's leftovers from her CC quilt - the pieces have added so much variety to my projects! Check out other design walls at Judy L.'s.

I haven't done much sewing in the past month because I aggravated a chronic lower back problem, and sitting was no longer an option! However, I did catch up on all the ironing, file a lot of paperwork, gather all our tax info, and cut out three quilts from scraps/stash. When I finished my Carolina Christmas flimsy, I had many pieces and parts leftover. After moving them aside once again, I decided to find a way to use them. This first quilt is made from leftover red/background HSTs. I just needed to cut out bricks and setting triangles for this one, a pattern by Judy Martin called Picket Fences. I cut out two different sizes of sashings for the green leftovers for quilt #2, and after adding in some different colors of Christmassy type fabrics, I cut out a third quilt for a Lynda Hall pattern called Last Rung on The Ladder. I am back to sewing, but I haven't touched my UFO for February or March. Sidetracked, but sewing, and I'll take that any day over not sewing! Head over to Judy's to see all the great projects out there in blog land.
