Charm Square Tree Skirt or Table Topper

So I finally ventured into the pre-cut world.  I have nothing against pre-cuts but when you typically design things outside of the normal sizes pre-cuts don't always work.  I didn't design this tree skirt though, it's from Fat Quarter Shop.  I toyed with joining this sew along because it is outside of my norm.  I don't do a lot of holiday-specific sewing, I don't typically use pre-cuts like charm squares or layer cakes, and it is one of my busiest times of the year.  I decided to join because I know a lot of you do like charm square projects and holiday sewing.  Plus having a deadline meant that I took time for myself to sew, even if it was a "have to" thing.

Union Square Quilt Block

I'm so excited to share the Union Square quilt block with all of you.  This whole project put a lot of things in focus for me.  It made me realize that everything happens for a reason and you have to roll with the punches.  This is not my design, I'm collaborating with Fat Quarter Shop.  It's been a while since I've made someone else's block which was nice.  The Union Square block takes just two fabrics and if you don't want to pick fabrics Fat Quarter Shop is offering a kit.

Learn more about my experience making the Union Square quilt block by Fat Quarter Shop and get the pattern.

Fiber Tuesday 185

Welcome back to Fiber Tuesday!  It is our last Fiber Tuesday.  This might have been the hardest post I've written.  While I know that it is time to move on from link parties it is hard to do.  I've had so much fun looking to see what you've been working on every Tuesday.

Welcome back to Fiber Tuesday!  We only have one more Fiber Tuesday after this one.  It's been a great run and I know I've said it before but I will say it again, THANK YOU! We never would have made it this long without all of you.  I will forever be grateful for your support and the friendships made during the last 184 weeks. I hope we will all stay in touch after next week.

Fiber Tuesday 183

Welcome back to Fiber Tuesday!  It is December!!  Holiday sewing is in full force, no matter when we start it seems like we are sewing until December 26th to get all the gifts done.  I have a few things to finish up but not a lot of sewing to be done.  I do have a few craft projects that I came up with over the weekend, it is just how my brain works.
