Poinsettia Tic-Tac-Toe

Poinsettia, Free Motion Quilting, QuiltGood Morning, Quilters!

I was thrilled to hear how many of you went straight to work on yesterday’s free motion quilt tutorial, The Poinsettia!  

(By the way, I didn’t mean to imply that the only December programming here at The Inbox Jaunt would be a few Tuesday Tutorials…we will have a full range of posts–though not daily, and there will only be three Tuesday Tutorials in December -not five.)

How did it go?  What did YOU make?  Can’t wait to see those mug-rugs!  Check out our Flickr group here and post YOUR photos!


I made a simple grid with six-inch squares… and filled in a few Poinsettias.

Then, using 50wt cotton Aurifil, I filled in the background using the Woven Cross Hatch/Orange Peel and a Plain Grid…

Can’t wait to see YOUR Poinsettias!
