This is phase one, the blocks are all drawn onto and set together with two prints, one red and one green and bordered. I am now picking out the threads that I will chose and will put this in my special stitching corner to start right away. These are so inspirational. I also have one block extra for the back and hope to be able to put the word " Family , and Pray, what a treasure this little wall quilt will be and hopefully it will share this Christmas with us.

Gail Pan Sesign - Christmas Wish Quilt
Having returned to sewing mode again I decided that if I drew on the designs on the little blocks and then embroidered them they would not get finished and just sit in a basket like a lot of my little blocks do, so this time I selected two feature fabrics, one I had more of than the other and i chose to set it together with the first border in a solid green so that the above colours would be added when the embroidery is finished. I love the sentiment and time that Gail has put into these designs.
