Christmas Corner March 2015

Welcome to Christmas Corner!-- A place to share Christmas projects throughout the year!

My main accomplishment this month is progress on my Scrappy Christmas Stars top.
I'm not sure if I'll have the stars going edge to edge or if I'll apply a border.  So far I have 4 stars across and 3 vertically.  Each star section is about 18".

I also made a couple gifts but not sure if they'll be for Christmas.  I was in awe of the beautiful pouch and apron made by Kristyne at Pretty by Hand and so I made my own similar versions.
I used this zipper pouch tutorial from Ginapina to guide me for the lining and zipper.

Aprons were a favorite gift to give last year.  Not much worry about whether the colors and style match the recipients home and taste.
I used my own apron tutorial but widened the neck strap, lengthened the waist ties and added the piece of eyelet, which were such cute details featured by Kristyne on her apron.
If you'd like to link up any gifts or Christmasy things, join right in!

  Thanks for stopping by!

Your Scrappy Christmas Stars blocks are so pretty!! Now, that pouch is to die for! It is just " quilty and pink " perfect and would be an elegant gift!! I also love the clean lines of your apron, in those pretty cool blue colors. I have a finished quilt ... to add later in your linky. (After the pattern is made public.)

I love the quilt. Would you mind telling me the name of the pattern? I have so many Christmas prints that would work wonderfully in that quilt.

Your pouch is very cute. Thank you for showing it.

Hi Sheri!

I think there is an issue between Yahoo and blogger as far as messages/comments.

Thank you for your kind offer of the dimensions for the quilt. My email addy is crazyquiltpatcher AT yahoo DOT com.

Have a wonderful day,
