SewCalGal's Christmas Quilt

Here's my entry for Sew Cal Gal's Christmas Quilt Show.






This was made using the grid fusible interfacing...you place all the squares on the grids and press, then add the seam binding between the squares.  

Easier said than done...the fusible did not fuse too well and I had an awful time sewing down the black binding.

This was definately one of those 'I'd never do again deals" !!  lol
Pretty though.

Thanks Sew Cal Gal for hosting this Christmas Quilt Show!!!

  21. Since I always work by hand, I have often thought how fast that technique might be. I hear that it isn't all a piece of cake when it comes to sewing.
    Anyway, It looks just great so you must have solved the problems as they arose.
