Tomorrow is February 1 and the day the Farmhouse Christmas Stitch Along begins on here and on Denise’s Just Quiltin’ blog.
Last night I did just a big of gridding. I started by marking the center width, then counting back to the beginning to make sure I had more than enough fabric. Some day I will trust the calculations and my figuring but for now, I have to count it out to be sure. I ran a basting thread down for the edge of the main design, then added or the border. I had a bit over 4″ and only need three so I moved my “start” line over to the left 1″. That will give me some wiggle room on the right side but if I need wiggle room . . something is wrong so I hope that doesn’t happen.
This morning I got it all loaded in the floor frame. I think I’m ready to begin!
There’s still time to jump in if anyone wants to join us. It can be made as individual pieces (9 of them) or they can all be stitched together as one piece.
