Another One Bites the Dust...

Put your dancing shoes on and form that Conga Line....we have another finish!

I can't believe that this one is DONE!  I got it finished relatively fast in my world of UFOs! :o))  as I started it in 2014!!:o)  Slow and steady...well maybe NOT that steady!  I tend to stitch the wool blocks, let it sit, stitch the machine pieced blocks, let it mellow and sit, stitch them all together, let them stew and SIT...well you get the idea..there's always A LOT of sitting!

This is a Primitive Gatherings' pattern called 'Home For the Holidays'.  I made the quilt entirely from my stash...and ordered the border fabric (online) as it is a Primitive Gathering fabric and has the little reindeer on it... just like the wool reindeer in the bottom left row...just too cute not to!

                                         
I didn't want to mess up the quilt so I kept the quilting simple...a meander around the wool motifs.  Not the greatest but she is done!



 This one I am keeping and will hang in the dining room every Christmas!  It's just too cute not to!

I caught up with hubby out in the backyard...he was painting the deck bench so I roped him into holding the quilt for pictures!  Sure hope his hands were clean!!  Oh well, paint or no paint, she is done!  Start up that band, grab the person in front...and kick those feet nice and high! 

U-F-O kick!  U-F-O KICK!  U-F-O KICK!  Yup, getting a UFO done is always reason to celebrate!!  

Have a terrific Tuesday and happy stitching!~P

  3. It is definitely a winner--and it is finished!! I'd kick, but I don't have time for more physical therapy right now, and I hate to think what a kick would do to my body!

  11. That is such a beautiful quilt and so much piecing, but the mix of stitching and piecing really makes the quilt, love it.

  15. Wow, that is just great. The setting blocks are just the right thing for the wool appliqué blocks. Surely Christmas can't be too far off
