Just a quick note, to say Merry Christmas!

InterWeave_Finished

The pattern “Interweave” can be found in Georgia Bonesteel’s Bright Ideas book.

If you do buy the book to make this pattern, you may want to know I used 21″ squares  where she uses 25″ because 21″ cuts nicer with less waste or at least leaves a more usable size of  left overs. [Her way 42″ wide fabric -25″=17″ vs My way 42″ wide fabric -21″=21″] I also used 2 1/2″ strips because I have a tool for those [when you have an awesome  hammer, everything looks like a nail], and those left overs are also more usable. With 3 borders of  2 1/2″ strips, mine came out to 61 1/2″ square before washing.

I had been ill since Thanksgiving, plus worked a bunch of overtime, so everything got delayed.

but Sunbonnet Sue is finally home!

Of course I made a complicated border!

and my tablet died, so I had to get a new one. I haven’t worked out the bugs to accurately show the colors.

I used 2 layers of 100% cotton batting with a 30’s print flannel backing

and quilted around all the diamonds in the border.

I feel better now, and would love to wish you all the best holiday ever.

Hug your loved ones!
