Description

Yay, Christmas sewing has started! I finished the February project for the Pretty in Patchwork Holidays! The reverse applique was fun and I really like how it turned out.

I used Essex Linen in Natural for the background and backing, Kona Solid in Avocado for the binding and Tidings (charm pack) by Nancy Halvorsen For Benartex. Since I used a charm pack I had to follow the longer method and cut out the 2.5 in squares. I liked the idea of having more choice in how my patchwork appeared.

I found that the back looked pretty plain so I took my left over squares and made some hexies! I really like how it turned out and it's my first with these :smile:! My next step was to add the date and sign.

I haven't quite started January's yet so I think I'll skip to March and move backwards if I have time . . .
