Are you thinking about Christmas yet?

Are you thinking about Christmas yet and the list of presents you want/need to make?

Here’s a cute and fun little table topper I made for Accuquilt’s blog recently

It’s made using the 10” QUBE set and companion set

I also used the holiday medley die and the matching embroidery files

I used about 1/2 yard white and 1/4 yard green and red fabric. Plus, more of the green for the Christmas trees.

I started with the biggest shapes, but I suggest cutting as much as you can from each strip.

Here's what I cut out in number order:

(12) of #2 in white

Eight (8) of #3 in white

Eight (8) of #5 in white

Four (4) of #11.1 in white

Four (4) of #12.1 in red

Four right and four wide (4R +4W) of #14 in white

Four (4) of #15 in red

Eight (8) of #16 in green

then I started sewing together as much as possible

and before long I have 1/4 blocks like this

Then I prepped some green fabric with heat n bond lite

and cut out 4 Christmas trees

And I densely quilted around the trees and added green binding
