Come to the Quilt Show!!

Head on over to SewCalGal's blog and join up with a favorite Christmas quilt, tablerunner, wallhanging. This is so much fun to see everyone else's goodies.


I worked on this small quilt all of 2009 by stitching the embroidery blocks that Gail Pan Designs gave to us as freebies for 9 months. I just started my blog at the beginning of 2009 and I was also trying to start AND finish quilts for the first time! I was determined to finish this for Christmas 2009 and I did....and it hung in my hallway and I am so proud of it!



I am working on Fat Quarter Shop's BOM, 12 Days of Christmas, and hope to have that to show and brag on next year.

I have had that pattern marked all year to make and haven't yet. Now, I know that it will be one of the first projects of the new year. Too many started to start a new one now.

Beautiful quilt.

Teresa said...

Beautiful work, the true meaning of Christmas!

Denise in PA said...

Oh my goodness - I made that little stitchery quilt too! (Well, I know, lots of people made that quilt, but still - cool!) It is so sweet! I can't wait til next year to see your FQS BOM - I love that quilt so far (unfortunately, I did NOT sign up for it, so I'm living vicariously!) Thanks, also, for stopping by to see my Christmas quilt!

Nancy Sue said...

Beautiful! Definately inspired to put it on my to-do list, especially when I see Denise in PA has stitched up one as well. I love the words!! Thank you for sharing it with us!
