CHRISTMAS QUILT UPDATE

Good morning! It is still morning, but just barely. Thought I would give you a quick update on the Christmas quilt. I have not worked on any blocks since sometime before I had the knee surgery. I had these two blocks prepped but no stitching done on them. I decided it is time to get back to doing some work on them.
I like the angel block with her striped pinafore/apron.
Wonder what kind of cookies are in the jar. My favorite would be chocolate chip.

I don't know how many more blocks there are to go but I am making progress. I hope to do some work on the quilt this week.

Enjoy your day and I hope you have lots of sewing time!

Karen

  1. Your Applique blocks are looking wonderful! I was complaining over xmas that I don't have any quilts for the season. It really doesn't matter that I had no quilts at home (I mostly give away everything I make), but the fact that everyone pulled out their xmas quilts and I had none!? I decided I was making one for this year. I just picked up a Glace FQ bundle and have a pattern rearing to go. This year, I too will have a Christmas Quilt.

  22. I think we all must have some form of attention deficit. We start things, put them away, take them back out. It's normal for me anyway.
    You asked if I'd say yes if Joe asked me. Asked me what??????? A beer? You bet!
