Finally the gals are ready to become blocks. These cuties printed out on muslin still need the color run and set test. Which is a simple test of soaking in vinegar. I'm not a big fan of muslin but the higher quality fabric and my printer don't get along. And the ready made printable fabric sheets are just too expensive.

The pattern I'll be using is called Nostalgic Christmas by Lynn Wilder. She has several example and ideas for this pattern on her blog Sewn in Wild Oaks. Just do a search on her blog for Nostalgic Christmas, the search box is on the left at the top of her blog. A few of my favorites.
here. Making it in the brighter colors has been the plan since I first saw the pattern. I made a couple of changes to my block below. I had to cut my images smaller than the pattern stated. So making an adjustment to the fist surrounding border was needed.
The pattern calls for a large outer border. I plan to do something a little different. Maybe no border...we'll just need to wait and see what happens!
