12 Days of Christmas - Revamped

The last time I checked in with the QAL, we were up to 6. Now we're up to 8 being done, and I changed Block 3 (the background fabric), and added to Block 1 to make it the right size.

Here's the new and improved Block 3


While I really liked the herringbone fabric as the original background, once I saw the blocks together, it just didn't seem right for the quilt as a whole.  And I'm pretty proud of myself, because I didn't redo the block completely - I kept the entire fireplace intact and just moved the wreath over.

And here's block 7


And Block 8



And here's all 8 together.  What do you think - did I make the right choice by changing the background fabric for Block 3 (you can see it here)?

  2. Ok, I have to admit the re-do looks better than the original, but I did like it, too. It all looks great, gonna be another beautiful work of art!

  3. They look great! I see what you mean about the fireplace and the new one rocks! You have the same fabrics that I do, just a different color way - I love the difference. Great job!!!
