Christmas and the few days after are always a big family time for me, because today (12/26) is my husband’s birthday(!!), and tomorrow (12/27) is our anniversary. We’ve been having a cozy time at home, so I’ve been able to get in just a little bit of sewing most days, though. If I’m going to carve out time to sew at this time of year, I want it to be special.
I took 4 days and put together 12 Perkiomen Valley blocks to send to the Ventura Modern Quilt Guild for Thomas Fire Relief Quilts. The fire is now the worst in California history, and I hope these 12 blocks can do some small part in helping people who have lost so much in this holiday season.
I will get these blocks in the mail in the next few days. The blocks go together very quickly; it always took me longer to make my fabric selections and cut the fabrics than it did to sew them together. Once I got into a groove, I found that pre-cutting for several blocks made things go faster.
