Last night I sewed all of the little triangle pieces together and pressed the seams. Tonight I started sewing the rows of little squares. So far it isn't evident of how well (or the opposite) I did at cutting out my pieces and lining them up with each other. It has been several years since I have pieced a quilt, so I'm a little rusty. Time will tell.
It's for our family to enjoy, so I am not going to be too picky along the way...better to finally have an imperfect wall hanging for Christmas than no wall hanging at all. :) At this pace, it may be done by the time the tree goes up this year!
Although we do not celebrate Santa, my favorite block in the quilt is the bottom center...I paired the Santa faces up with a "Letters to Santa" pattern. It's adorable.
