This is so pretty! Love the colors just popping off that background.

Rebecca

Love your fabric choices so far. This is going to be fun!

Whatthebobbin

Love the colors and never thought to do squares for the tree. Great idea. I have never made hexie before and had a little bit of an issue but was able to figure it out. Love you linen color too

Whatthebobbin

Quilt455 Thanks. I took the lazy way out with the squares instead of hexies. I like the look of the hexies..just no the work. Its actually timeless treasures sketch in black - no linen smile

Whatthebobbin Now that I look closer I see that it is not linen but like it anyways. Not the lazy way out, just different!

HawkFan

I thought it looked like linen too. Very cute and I love the bright colors

Whatthebobbin

Quilt455 I like different smile

Whatthebobbin

HawkFan Thanks!

Quilt455

Whatthebobbin Me too. This is the first project from the book that I actually used and did what it said to do. I have never used Linen before and actually liked the look of it.

Whatthebobbin

Quilt455 I really like the look of linen too smile

Great fabric choices - love it!

This came out wonderful. How did you get your numbers to be so bold. Did you use a stamp? I didn't have a stamp and was to cheap to go out and buy one but might if that is what you used and redo mine. Looks so much better.

Caribousmom Thanks!

Quilt455 The numbers are felt I bought pre-cut from an etsy shop. I wanted the numbers to stand out since I used busy/bold fabrics for the pockets.

Quilt455

Great idea. hmmm, might have to steal it. Thanks and I love you little #25

Whatthebobbin

Quilt455 It worked out pretty well. Best of all? I didn't have to cut those darn things out myself. smile

Rebecca

This turned out so cute! Great idea with the numbers. I love your little packages under the tree!
