~ Christmas Joy by Just Let Me Quilt ~ from Podunk Pretties

HELLO Happy Quilters!  Friday at last!  How many of you are like me and planning a private quilting retreat in your sewing room?  I bet I'm not the only one with few Christmas sewing projects on the to-do list.  For me these are the best retreats.  I prepared for this 3 day quilting retreat by cooking ahead for Mr. Podunk.  If he doesn't want to eat Taco Soup leftovers all weekend there's frozen pizza and cold cuts in the fridge.   The only thing that could interrupt my pajama quilting retreat is unexpected company.  But to be honest ...

*** Project ***

My FREE wreath pattern is very quick to do!  And I must say I gave myself a challenge with this one that I'll explain below.  The Fat Quarter Shop's button club kit is called 'Jolly' so I used the letters on the sashing! Then decorated the wreath with the super cute buttons. 

My Pattern Download is after my tutorial below along with the fabrics and supplies I used

Today is a lovely day here in south Florida because currently, the temperature is in the 60s! That's pretty cold down here considering we are pretty used to 90-degree weather almost all year round- it's nice to have a break from the rain too. When there is not a single cloud in the sky, the sun is out, and there is a cool breeze, it's the perfect recipe for making me happy! Which brings me to today's latest AGF collection release, Meriwether

Meaning "happy weather" in Middle English, this collection is available in 16 prints ...
