Christmas Sew-A-Long

SEW what did I get done while our Task Master Quilt Sue cracked her whip during our Christmas Quilt-a-Long?  :o)

Well to be quite honest, I was afraid to put away my current project, (Settler’s Pride) to start something Christmassy…just because I KNOW that if I packed up this project, that would be it…out of sight, OUT OF MIND…it would be banished into the Land of UFOs never to be seen again!!  AND I REALLY want to finish this one THIS year!

So I put on this…P1130852

And while I listened, I hand stitched…and got the last two blocks FINISHED…Yeah!!  Feels so good!!

I LOVE this quilt!!

Now I just have the top and bottom borders to hand stitch, then baste on the flannel backing, hand quilt it and put the binding on. (For the binding fabric I ordered a beige/brown, blue/ green plaid suit weight wool..which is in the mail!  If it turns out to be too light in colour I will dye it a mottled black.)

I can see the light at the end of the tunnel…oops..I can also see my fluffy pink bathrobe!!  :o)

Thanks SEW much Sue and Cathi for cracking the Christmas whip!!  I got a ton done!!  :o)

Hope you have a Super Sunday and Happy Quilting!!~P

  7. Good finish. And since it is to be my Christmas gift (isn't it?), it really was for the Sew-Along.

  15. Your quilt is absolutely gorgeous! Yea for you for sticking with it.
    I also wanted to tell how impressed I was with your machine quilting. I loves those roses. For some reason I couldn't get the comment thing to work for me on your blog during the time you were working on those.

  17. Absolutely stunning and good for you, not to be distracted with something else.

    I am so loving it-did you find the pattern problematic? I rhink I remember reading of some who said it had to be enlarged or something before they could start.

    You are so nearly there-can't wait to see,
