Owning it.

Now, I don't want you to leave thinking this is my BEST paper-piecing... truth is, this was my first time trying it and later I tried the pattern again with much better results.  I'm just determined to not waste this... so, let's call this Wild, Scrappy & Wonky Jeweled Forest and 'own it'.

It's so close to being done that I'm going to post the progress... almost done!

Top and bottom borders on the way.
I want to applique something in the corners...

When this is done, I'm gonna hang it up for everyone to see - in the Front room (even though the Christmas holidays are long past). 
We are sure to talk (and laugh) about how wonky the trees are, but I am going to raise a glass and shout out, 'Finished'.  

Enjoy Your Sewing!


  1. Christmas is over, but this quilt makes me think of the Pacific Northwest! Nice!

    1. Me too!
      I've got the enlarged blocks going for a 2nd quilts and as I was going through my fabrics I came across some muted colors for yet, another quilt. Funny, I didn't think I'd like paper-piecing!

  2. A wonderful Christmas Quilt!

    Herzlichen Gruß und ein schönes Wochenende,
    wünscht dir
