Star Wars Strippies!



 After I realized how much I was enjoying my Halloween Star Wars strippie, I decided I needed a Christmas one.  I was able to get a couple of yards to make these strippies.  They're currently untrimmed and I'm waiting on some minky for the backing.  My Halloween strippie backing is flannel and my boyos don't care for it.  But they love minky!  I might have to fight to get use of one of these!


Also, the red, yellow, and holly fabric are all from my stash!

Coastal Christmas


I absolutely fell in love with this heron.  I have a particular affection for these long-legged birds and when I saw this fabric line I knew I had to get it.  I did have some difficulty with the mitered corners and tried various youtube videos to get it right!  I found  one video that showed a slightly different technique that finally worked for me.  I made the second panel slightly differently (gosh, those miters require so much extra fabric!).  And the small table topper is from the leftovers.  I actually have enough fabric cut to make another table topper!


 I emailed Karen the Quilter to see if she had time to quilt for me and she responded immediately.  I went straight home and fixed up the backing and batting-and mailed it off the next morning!

Finally!

 It's a top!  My goal for my two week vacation was to get this to a top and here it is!
