    Sounds like a lot of fun. I have some Christmas fabric that has just been waiting for a project.

    The blue and silver pointsettas were from 'Holiday Classics' collection by Laurie Godin for Northcott.

    I only posted those for ideas.

    I've got the yardages, but hope most of you have comparable fabrics so you don't have to go out and buy all of it. I don't want to tax anyone's budget.

    I have to confess that I only made up the wall hanging, not the lap size. So, with that understanding, I'll be making it with all of you.

    I'm going to post the fabric images again and put the yardages in the caption box for the image.

    This quilt measures 53" x 53". (this is per the program. I hadn't made it yet. I will be making it if you want to wait and watch ...)

    Is that large enough for a lap quilt? I hope you have most of this in your stash already.

    For the wintery scene you will need:

    1/8 YARD of light to medium brown. (no pattern, solid or batik)

    I'm sorry. I have to run to my job. I'll be back to post the rest this p.m.


    I'm also going to post the first clue Friday evening. There will be roughly six clues with sewing instructions.

    There is an applique component to this that will be the very last thing. It will be optional for you and that will be done over and above the clues.

    I apologize for the interruption. Jobs can seriously interfere with sewing.

    You'll notice a lot of these fabrics are similar. The point is texture and shading. If you don't go out and buy the exact suggestions, mix and match a couple dark blue snowflakey patterns together.

    The final selections:


    The applique portion is above and beyond these yardages. It will be two other fabrics, a medium blue batikish, no purple, no green and a small portion of white fabric or another suggestion I'll post. I won't be a lot.

    I hope everyone has lots and lots of winter Christmas fabrics already and don't have to buy too much. I've got a bunch myself and am going to be using my stash. I probably will have to buy about 3 yards or so though.

    I'm going to put a Christmas floral on as a backing for mine. So, that will raise up the yardage. That's optional. For the Winter Scene version, for backing, I'd probably use the Hoffman's Winter Radiance - Reindeer Stroll - Midnight Blue/Silver. But anyone of them would be fine.



    Hoffman's Weekend in the Woods - Twinkling Skies - Cobalt/Silver. 5 1/2 Yards. I used a large chunk of this throughout the pattern. You'll need it.

    I put the yardages in the caption box portion of the images. I thought that would be easier.

    But, now that I think of it, it might be easier if you saw them next to the list now that I think of it.

    :wink:

    It would be easier for me (I am dense) to have the yardage next to the colors on the list. Thanks. Some you listed at 5 1/2 yards - sounds like alot for a lap quilt.

    Well, the ones at 5 1/2 yards are used throughout the quilt.

    I added two borders to it to make it a lap quilt and the thing came out to 53" x 53". It originally was 37" x 37" as a wall hanging.

    It does sound like a lot to me too. The quilt program counted and calculated it. Without the two borders I added, it takes 2 1/8 yards of that fabric.

    I don't want anyone to spend a fortune on it -- especially for something you haven't seen. I know you've all got projects you want to invest in.

    I'm going to make it up as a mystery quilt anyway, post the clues and pics and you can all watch, and if you like it, you've got the pattern and the the yardages and can join in. It'll still be fun.

    :D

    I think what is confusing is the blue you say 4.25 and the green 5.5 yds??? Is it at all possible to list the yardages with the fabric and not under the pictures. I really want to do this but am so confused by all the pics of fabric. If the big amount of yardage is for border you could tell us how much if we don't use that fabric for border?

    I'll list the yardages again in a list. I'll do that tomorrow night some time. I have an early job tomorrow and then I'll be sewing all afternoon and will be back on line tomorrow night.
