Christmas Quilt-A-Long…

In between Thanksgiving preparations I managed to get a few Quilting jobs done during the Christmas Quilt-A-Long with Quilt Sue and Shakerwood Cathi!

I finished gluing the last few blocks of the Autumn Quilt…so she is ready to go!

I got all of the blocks for Gail Pan’s ‘All Things Christmas’ traced and ready for stitching…such cute stitcheries!


Her stitcheries are simple yet incredibly sweet…


And they won’t take long to stitch up.


Yes, they are going to be a joy to stitch up!


And I prepped for my next GIVE AWAY…which looking at my Followers list may be SOON!  I can’t believe that ‘Sweet P’ will be celebrating the arrival of its 800th follower…and when, or rather IF that happens it will be PARTY TIME!!  Here’s a glimpse of what I’m prepping…  P1150757

More on this when and IF the number reaches 800.  You will hear the BELLS AND WHISTLES sound when/if it does!!  Stay tuned!

Thanks to Cathi and Sue for another wonderful Christmas-Sew-A-Long!  It doesn’t look like much but these are all jobs that would have NEVER got done without the CSAL push!! 

Now I better get cooking…It’s Happy Turkey Day for us…although technically Thanksgiving Day is tomorrow here in Canada…but you got to set the schedule around those guests who still work (and don’t have fun all day long! heehee) :o)

Have a Super Sunday and Happy Quilting!!~P


  1. Happy Thanksgiving! Don't gobble to much! LOL!
    I am also getting projects ready for our trek south. Isn't it fun?
    Enjoy your day.

  2. Glad you had a productive day yesterday. You can see by my last post from yesterday I cheated a little and didn't get a stitch of sewing finished!

    Happy Thanksgiving!! They don't close down the country for a major holiday tomorrow? The nerve of them!

  3. maybe just maybe I will win the prize for being the only non-quilter follower? the turkey this morning is splashing around in an ice cold pool!..dang bird!!

  4. I love your Christmas Quilt Along project. And congratulations on your soon-to-be 800 followers!

  5. It was just a matter of time - quilters found you and your talent! Paulette how do you transfer your designs to your fabric for stitching? Thanks for sharing. Happy Thanksgiving to you! Jance

  6. Congrats on your almost 800 followers - that's amazing - but your very inspirational so it's not a surprise :). Love your new stitchery pattern - where do you purchase her patterns from. I've been checking around and can't seem to locate a nice selection of them.

    Hope your Thanksgiving was lovely :)


  7. The stitcheries are what caught my eye. For yourself or a gift?

  8. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

    Love the stitcheries - need to get that pattern.

  9. Thank you for coming and to my blog and for your kind reaction.
    I love your blog, the stitcheries will make a gorgeous quilt and I like the wool primitives!
    Happy quilting, Cisca

  10. Those stitcheries look darling! Congrats on so many followers girl, and I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!

  11. Congratulations on your 800 followers!! And Happy Thanksgiving!

  12. WOW! Love that quilt! Did you get the pattern awhile ago? I can't seem to find it in print. Cooking my turkey today too and it smells gooooooood! I am very impressed with how organized you are and how much you are accomplishing!!! my hero - really, you do inspire my dear. Did you win some thread recently?

  13. Gail's work is lovely. I am fortunate in that I live near a store where she regularly has samples on display. Great to see her work.

  14. Happy Thanksgiving.

    Your stitchery looks great and it'll make a lovely quilt.

    Oh, and I've just seen that you only need one more follower. Congratulations, 800 is really quite something.

  15. Aha, I am number 800! What a fun blog you have - I so enjoy reading it. And I can hardly wait to read of your adventures over the winter months down south. Happy Thanksgiving!

  16. Just checked, Paulette, you now have 801 Followers
    Fantastic ! ! !


  17. Happy Thanksgiving. I love your Christmas projects. I hope you'll enter them in the Christmas Quilt Show this year.
