Tis the Season…

It was hot last night…REALLY HOT…too hot to work on this…

Working with wool when it’s hot out..well..it just doesn’t mix! 

So I put on a cotton nightie (I could EASILY become a Mumu wearer!!)and perused this lovely book…

P1130140

Yup…cooled me right off!  This is my latest JoAnn’s 40% off book!!

P1130141

What a wonderful book…complete with a scotty dog in several pictures!!

P1130143

But it’s this quilt that I LOVE…I mean really…a girl’s GOT to plan ahead!!P1130146

Just look at it…simple, sweet… with just the right amount of applique…This would make the perfect gift!  Love it!  Now think of it TIMES 5!  I think that I had better start collecting more green fabric!!

Hoping that you have a Sugar Plum kind of day…and Happy Quilting!~P

  6. Sounds like you have a few Xmas gifts already in the planning stages, lucky girls! Enjoy the heat because you'll be wearing the flannels when you get back here. Or maybe you can bring it back home. Happy stitching!

  10. I made that very quilt this year and can't wait to make it again. :) I'm thinking of seasons....fall colors with leaves on pumpkins across the top banner, summer brights with flowers in a row, spring pastels with bunnies. Can't you just see it? blessings, marlene

  12. I love this book. I got the Stocking quilt done for the holidays last year, and have the quilt with all the little black and white 9 patches about 2/3rds finished. There might be hope on that one for this year.
    Enjoy, the patterns are fun and easy to put together!

    If you ever get to Moose Jaw, you have to go to their shop. Its called Quilt Patch, and its wonderful. They have wool....

  16. For my birthday last fall my sweet sister sent me that book and the fabric to make the quilt in your last photo. It is finished except for some touch up appliqué work and the longarming--I absolutely love it!
