My intention was to make every quilt different -- no duplicates -- but I started work on a repeat pattern this weekend, which seemed the logical thing to do. I'm down to the wire (last department meeting in 9 days), and I want a quick Christmas/ winter quilt with a different look from the sawtooth stars quilt that's already finished.
That's where deja vu comes in. I have a small stack of leftover 10" Christmas squares from a quilt I made one year ago. I wrote about that previous Christmas quilt here, and now I'm making a second one. Some different fabrics included, and I have to add another sashing fabric, but this quilt and the other one will be twins -- more fraternal than identical. It's a "Tiny Ones" pattern called "The Cut-up."
Back to sewing !! (Click on photos for closeup views.)
