More English Paper Piecing Hexagons

Newest hexagons for my Christmas Quilt ...

Here's how it's looking ... Once I sew these two in, along with the white/neutral one from my earlier post, then I just have three more hexagon-flowers to add. (See the resemblance between the quilt top and its "pattern"? Fun, huh? Really, the pattern is paper-sized, and the quilt is about 3 feet wide.)

After I finish the quilt top, I "just" have to stitch this part to something (I'm debating between two different cream/tan sheets I've got for background), then add some sort of border (I'm debating between sewing a bunch of leftover red-white-green squares together, or stitching on some random hexagons as border), then add batting and a backing (I'm debating between the "elegant" Christmas fabric, the Veggie Tales Christmas fabric, and the "other" sheet that I don't use for the background on the front.) So, yeah, plenty to do.

Stay tuned for more on the Christmas Quilt project ...

Since this IS a work in progress, I'm hoping to link this post to Work In Progress Wednesday at Freshly Pieced ... So if you're visiting from Freshly Pieced, HI, and thanks for stopping by! I love the inspiration of seeing what others are busy sewing. Have a great week!
