My First Quilt

Here we are, a quick picture of what I did last week at my quilting class. The first part of my Sampler Quilt, it's called a Wonky Star. I haven't got off to the greatest start with it but I'm not going to frog it. I quite like it & hopefully my little boy will too :-)

I have a new quarter inch foot for my sewing machine & a couple of fabric prints which I think work perfectly with the three that I'd already chosen (the three original ones are across the top in the image below)..... what do you think?

I'm having a bit of a quandary at the moment. It's regarding my christmas stitching. Now I love my christmas cross stitch, it's my favourite type of stitching, the colours & designs are fabulous & always make me smile. Anyway, I'd like to know what people think about keeping christmas designs up all year around. Do you consider them to be just another lovely design that deserves it's place or are they classed as decorations & should only be displayed at holiday time?? Let me know what you do or would do?

Happy Stitching :-)


  1. I think you're off to a great start! The colors you picked out go really well together :o)

    I keep my snowmen up but the really Christmasy stuff goes away.

  2. I think the wonky star is fab, as are the fabric choices....perfect for the boy twin.

    And as for Christmas stitching, I left a Santa hat on a bust in our sitting room all year. I sort of missed it when DH remembered to take it down this I'd keep them up. Christmas is a lovely time to remember, all year round. And you put lots of work into the stitching.
