Christmas in August Sewing Party update

I should have known when I started to match up my charm squares and got one that looked like this that today may just be a bit more challenging than normal.
I sure would hate to be the person that got the other charm square with the missing part.
Since Bee has been working on her Harry Potter blocks her machine was set up in the place where I normally sew. Being a bit lazy I used her machine rather them mine. As Julia Roberts in Pretty woman says "Big mistake, huge mistake." Needless to say the 1/4 seam that I thought I was sewing wasn't really a 1/4 seam. These are 4 1/4 inch blocks and it made all my claws for my blocks have bad points. Sitting her and looking at those points for a few minutes I knew I had rip and sew these block an extra time. Now that it is done I am so happy I did it. I will try and finish this top tomorrow.
I can't wait to stop in on everybody's blogs tomorrow and see what you have all been up to today


  1. Good luck on your claws. They look very intricate but I'm just starting out so I don't know all the secrets. I'm impressed.

  2. Your blocks came out really pretty.

  3. Love the colors on your blocks - they're very pretty.

  4. Looks great. Can't wait to see it together.

  5. Good for you, you know you'll be happier. Your blocks are very pretty.

  6. Can't wait to see your finished quilt with the bear paws...great colors!


Thanks taking the time to share your thoughts.
