I love the fabric you are using.
Blitzen is wonderful isn't it? I have a layer cake of it lying in wait for something amazing. I like this basket weave you have happening. You using Kona white as the background? Any firm quilting ideas for this?
I, too, ordered a Blitzen layer cake last summer when someone had them on sale. When it came in I was really disappointed - I guess I just didn't look at all of the fabrics. I didn't use it for the project I bought it for but waited a few months and then cut it up and sewed it back together. I can't remember what pattern I used but it was something along the lines of Yellow Brick Road. Anyway, it's now almost cute. I am going to put the binding on it this weekend at a sewing retreat. Was your Blizten roll what you expected? Just curious. I like what you're doing with it.
Really like the pattern you chose! And very smart to start your Christmas sewing in February;)
Love this pattern! It looks pretty complex and headache filled, props to you! haha :)
