HOT OFF THE PRESS

I just finished pressing the last border of "Christmas 101".  And now it is ready for layering and quilting.
The applique was fairly easy to do.  I was doing a block in between other project blocks but decided to plunge in and get it done.  I mentioned previously that the pattern I used is by Jan Patek.  The majority of the fabric is from Moda "Remembrance".  That is the same fabric line that I used for the "Millennium Garden" quilt which you can see here.  It has a different look in this new quilt than it did in the Millennium piece.  I often get an e-mail asking what pattern or fabric I used so I am trying to at least mention the pattern each time I post a picture of a block.

I also finished another block for the "Collections" quilt.  My poor logs got off kilter the further I got up in creating the log house but I am going to leave it as is.  I don't think it is as crooked as it looks in the picture.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit.
