All Things Christmas



I finished the last bit of applique on All Things Christmas this week. I have to make a couple of pieced blocks to assemble the last big block. Then I have to go over each big block and do some embroidery here and there before I can assemble them. The border is an appliqued scalloped border. I need to figure it all out, but the applique on that will be real easy and fast once it's prepped. Almost done! This one might actually get finished before Christmas!

Stopped by the local quilter and picked up a quilt from her, and then went to Target and bought enough frozen food for a few nights. Also picked up nine -- yes, nine! -- DVDs. Daisy and I will be sitting on the sofa binding and appliqueing if anyone needs us!

Hi Vicky, I found you via "Pincushion Diaries" and saw your little Doxie...I have one the same coloring and love her so much it hurts. I just wanted to say "hi" share my little doxie with you too. If you'd like, visit my blog via my web site www.quiltedquickies.com (I always forget my blog address). Love your Christmas quilt and love to hear people working on quilts early before the gift giving season.

Wow! This is going to be an awesome quilt. I don't know this pattern. I'm looking forward to seeing it put together. I'm also trying to finish a Christmas quilt. My quilt is in Christmas Toile fabric. I've almost finished sewing the blocks then just have to assemble the rows. Enjoy your applique and videos!

Now that sounds like a perfect way to spend a weekend!
Has Anne seen your blocks? I will e-mail her to be sure she sees the wonderful work you're doing with her design! I know she will be so pleased!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
