I'm thinking of taking these:
And making this.
Every year, when I haul out the Christmas decorations, I sigh and wish I had made a new skirt. The current one is a circle of pre-quilted holiday fabric, with some red bias tape sewn on in a few places, ripped off in most places. I made this, oh, 20 years or so ago, before I really understood bias tape and all that. I remember jamming the edge of the skirt into the tape and sewing it all at once. No wonder it's falling apart.
Oh, and I had a revelation the other day, while sewing with my guild friends. Why is every block I make square? I've sewed up a good hundred blocks in the past few weeks. Everyone of them square. I know it doesn't sound like much of a revelation, but it was an aha! moment to me. Well, I shall be square no more (except to my teenagers.) Time to think outside the equilateral and try something, oh, I don't know, how about Rectangular!! (And yes, the above pieces are cut into rectangles. Ha!) Hopefully more to show next week!
