More Progress- Carol E.

Here is more of what I'm working on. The letters go along the top and the right side.


The drum goes in the middle.



The previous blocks I showed you (trees and manger) go underneath. I'm going to make some snowflakes (I think) to go along the left side.

I was so excited to attach these knitting-needle-drumsticks that I already glued them down with a super-glue thing. (I also ironed on some fusible interfacing on the back and will do some kind of loop stitching around the sticks under the mittens. Mittens are not yet attached.) Afterwards I realized that it's going to be tough quilting around those sticks. What was I thinking??? It'll be a challenge I hadn't anticipated.

I love everyone's projects and ideas so far! Looking great! By the way, I futzed with this drum many times before I settled on how it looks now. At first I was going to have a snowman doing the drumming, but that looked utterly stupid. I experimented with different backgrounds, too. Finally settled on this and like it better with no snowman at all... just the drum and the mittens provide enough of the idea.

I just love those letters.

This is a great and very inspiring group of quilt artists....I am so amazed at what can get done when I just sit and sew...a forget about the quilt police!
