One big holiday tradition in my son in law’s family is Tamale Day. The whole family gets together to make tamales. My daughter and SIL have a big dining room with a 9 foot table so they get to host Tamale Day this year. Since they were married in May, we are now one big family and I get to go too! I am so excited!
I haven’t had any time to sew lately so I thought I would share a very old Christmas quilt with you.
I hang this in our powder room every year. It is very hard to take a picture of a quilt hanging in a tiny room.
But if it looks crooked, that is because it is. These were blocks from a guild swap and the quilt was put together in a fit of frustration over never getting anything finished. I have always called this the PMS quilt. I remember forcing things to fit and getting mad when they didn’t. That is how you end up with trees that have no trunks.
And a bottom border that runs downhill.
I am embarrassed to say it , but this is only one quilt in my PMS series.
Some days, I should not be trusted with a rotary cutter…..
On the other hand, Daughter #3 loves this quilt and never let’s me miss a year hanging it up and now it is a tradition.
It’s also a reminder that keeps me humble!
ETA: I can’t believe how much better this quilt looks in pictures! Trust me, this quilt has nary a 90 degree corner or straight line anywhere. It really is worse in person.
