Christmas in July (well, early August)


I finished piecing "Christmas Ramble" this weekend.
Each block has 20 2.5" HSTs. (Doing the math: 600 HSTs in the 30 blocks plus 16 HSTs in the corners.)
The blocks finished to 11.5" and the entire top is 87 x 76. It used 8 yards of fabric, though I had to buy the red border since none of the reds I had on hand was just right.
The Friends of the Library will raffle this as a fundraiser this fall. I'm contributing the top and they'll reimburse me for the professional quilting. It feels good to have something completed in advance!
