I know it's Christmas time but...

I have been feeling very springy lately. I used scraps from my Verna jelly roll cut them in half so that they were 1.25 inches X 5.5 inches and tied them like Rachel's tute onto a 12 inch wreath frame. I REALLY love Verna...
****Note**** MY Estimated yardage for anyone interested...
12 inch wreath uses 300 - 1.25 inch strips X 5.5 inches {total 1 yard and 14inches}
14 inch wreath uses 360 - 1.5 inch strips X 5.5 inches {total 1 yard and 24 inches,roughly a Moda honey bun}
these are estimates since I did the 12 inch with scraps.

Now I have a goal to do one in Christmas fabrics BEFORE Christmas if that's possible. Thanks for stopping by!

p.s. TODAY is the deadline for the One Pack Doll Quilt Challenge Giveaway.  So far there are 7 entries. Don't delay...post your project on Flickr for an entry to win 2 Moda jelly rolls of your choice from the Fat Quarter Shop

Oooohhhh....Christmas fabrics would look great in it.

Love how different all the one patch quilts look. It was a good hand sewing project for all.

I was thinking of doing a scrap wreath. Do you have an estimate on how much you used? Not sure if I have any good green homespun, was thinking I could buy some from Jo anns for that type of project.

I know I feel springy because the weather is more spring then what should be winter.
