I made this quilt earlier on in the year and I turned it in to my longarm quilter. I got it back on Friday and put the binding on.

I have been decorating for Christmas! My favorite season by far! I love the soft glow of a Christmas tree at night. I usually have a few trees up. This year I have three (so far - who knows what might happen in the next few days). This one is in our family room.

I should not be starting anything new - but I did and I finished it too. I wanted to make a Christmas Cushion! I love Deer so much. They are such elegant animals. I thought two on a cushion would look good.

I pattern tested a new bag designed by my sweet friend Natalie Rawlinson. She is just such a good pattern writer. Her directions are so clear and concise! She has lots of pictures too which are such a help.

Well I have been missing from Blogland for quiet some time! I have been stitching though! I promise!!! I have been playing "catch-up" on my Value Proposition quilt. Karen at Faeries and Fibres has a gorgeous sew-a-long using 1" hexagons. This quilt is a lesson in value and it has proved to be a very good exercise for me. I have loved making the blocks. I have 11 completed blocks and 1 partial blocks done out of 16 blocks and 2 partials published. So not too much further to go to be up to date.

Around the end of last year I found Christmas Spools Pattern on Moda Bake Shop and really liked the design. I made up the quilt top really quickly and then it just sat there waiting to be quilted. I pin basted the quilt and started in on the quilting. I was trying to take a short-cut of course!

I posted this top a few weeks back. Well I finally got down to quilting it yesterday. I was waiting for it to tell me how it wanted to get quilted and it took it's sweet time.
