I've been following along with Lori Holt on Instagram (@beelori1) as she releases blocks for her new Christmas sampler. Some are from her Quilty Fun book, and some instructions are only available on Instagram. I've had quite an adventure with the mitten block.
Ugh. Looks just wrong. Doesn't look like a pair any more. Time to grab the seam ripper.
The excess mittens will probably go into the back of this quilt.
Despite the overthinking and mismeasuring, I'm really enjoying this project and can't wait for the next block to come out.
She also released a cute turkey pattern on her blog that I whipped up into a pillow:
Rainy days make me happy to be inside sewing!
