I am quite slow in introducing myself and just as slow in starting this fun project. I am Lisa from New Zealand, and I am going to make a "Joy to the World" quilt based on this very wonky sketch.
My colours wont be traditional Christmas colours. When I was a little girl and people asked me what my favourite colour was, I would say "Orange and Purple". These days I'm quite fond of the combination of "Raspberry and Lime". I seem to have some of all of those colours in my stash I'm going to ty to crombine them.
I've heeded Tonya's advice and started on something easy - the trees. Here are my first few.
One of things I'd like to includes is some presents. Laura has drawn some very cute ones on her martini quilt design. I'm not quite sure how to go about these, particularly the bows. Any suggestions Tonya? Do I combine piecing and applique?
