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.
