Short and Sweet

Still not a lot to share since most of my time has been making gifts.  However, I do have one item that is for ME that I can show you J

The Fat Quarter Shop’s Deck-Ade the Halls Quilt…

See my very tall DH’s head over the top of the quilt? It was a bit windy and he had to let the bottom of the flimsy touch the ground so I could get a somewhat decent photo.

FQS does an amazing job with their kits…plenty of fabric left for something else. 

This was an It’s Sew Emma pattern and for the most part, a beginner can make this.  I did have some issues in that a few of my blocks did not measure as the pattern indicated and it DID matter in the end.  I was able to find a way to make it all work though.

This one is off to the long-arm quilter.  It will be bound and laundered the next time you see it….woohoo!

Next weekend is my sweet Mother’s 70th birthday and we have a couple of surprises for her… I’ll be back to share photos and a story or two J

Have a wonderful week my friends!

What a sweet Christmas quilt! I wish I had your talent. I have been collecting vintage pillow cases to cut into squares for a quilt top some day. I have never made a real quilt though and am a bit intimidated to try it. I need to just bite the bullet and at least start cutting squares or something! Enjoy celebrating with your mom....and tell her Happy Birthday from one of your blog friends...:)

Blessings, Vicky

I love your Christmas quilt especially the ornaments which take center stage. Good for you for finishing up in time for the holidays. I always stall out at the last minute it seems. Forgot to tell you how amazingly delicious your pumpkin tarts look too. Hve a great week.

Gifts to yourself are the best, Jeanna ;>) Finding a way to work around those pesky measurements that don't work is always satisfying, too! Happy 70th to your mother!
