Melanie www.jellybeanangel2.blogspot.com and I are doing the Christmas Story together. Sorry I didn't post yesterday Melanie. All those little 1 1/2 inch squares and strips. Sometimes I have a problem with accuracy. I need to remember that with strips that are 1 1/2 inches even being a smidgen off will make a difference. Wish me luck getting them all together! I haven't done much applique in the past, but I'me really enjoying this so far.

Your applique looks like fun. I'm not terribly accurate at the best of times, even with a quarter inch foot, so tiny squares like that would probably defeat me!

Love those angels! Accuracy is tough for me too.

Hia Lynn it is looking lovely. I'm glad you are enjoying applique.

This is really cute! And yes, those little strips can be hard to make accurate! I have found that if I sew with a scant 1/4", then trim to the correct size if needed. It's a lot more work, but worth it!

Oh gosh. This is so cute. I think I love the christmas balls the best.

It looks great so far! I like making things a little longer or wider if I can. Then I can just chop it off to make it fit!

This looks so cool! I love seeing the same quilt done in different fabrics.
