2 New Quilts on my project list......

I know.... it is 1 week before Christmas and I started another quilt a couple of days ago..... I have had the Maison De Garance fabric by Moda for almost a year now and I was just dying to make a quilt out of it ! All of my blocks are sewn , I just need to square them up , sew them together and then add my borders

This is the fabric I have chosen.... The large red print is going to be my backing , the middle fabric is going to be my small border and the brown floral is going to be my large border.

AND THEN.......

This quilt is calling my name ... Starry Eyed Quilt ! You can find this pattern in the Moda Bakeshop for FREE! I have all of my Countdown for Christmas fabric and ready to go after I finish my Hot Cross Maison De Garance

I have to bake Christmas cookies in between sewing this week


So we will see how it goes . I still have cookies to bake .

The house is decorated and the presents wrapped time to SEW SEW SEW..

Just finished this Christmas Candle Mat. This was a kit I bought at a quilt show last April. The pattern is #201 Christmas Candle Mat by Farmhouse Threads.

I am also in the process of sewing my Picnic Baskets blocks together that I am using my Lilac Hill fabric on. I hope to show pictures of my progress on Monday. The blocks are going to together quite quickly.

Now that the house is decorated inside and out and most of the Christmas shopping is done and presents wrapped. I can now enjoy some sewing before we start our baking next week.
