I haven't forgotten you...

I haven't forgot all my friends in blogland. This past month has been unusually busy. It is nearing an end, and I am thankful to say that I had a super long weekend, but some time to sew.....I worked on my "Plan C" schnibbles, "What did you Call me" by the wooden bear, and designing my fandango P.S.I Quilt Pinwheel sampler quilt.....Oh if I didn't have to return to work tomorrow the things I could get done.... I promise pics coming soon....

Sew Love,

Perfect 10 Christmas Quilt

This is my "Perfect 10" 12 days of Christmas by Kate Spain for Moda Quilt. I just fell in love with this line and I really like how it came together in the end. I was a bit worried about it when I was looking at it on the design board.

The pattern is by swirlygirldesigns and I was able to cut, layout, piece, and iron this quilt in less than 6 hours. Gotta love that!
I also love the swirly girls. I know them both well and can not wait to show this to them this weekend hopefully!

Now, what to do about the quilting? I am trying to decide if I want to quilt it myself or send it to a long arm quilter. Hmm....

Backing and Binding

BTW: I showed it to my hubby in the middle of the process and he states..."It confuses me." and then a few minutes later, "You are going to finish a Christmas quilt before the middle of December? Are you okay?"

Up close

Gotta feel the love. I think it is beautiful, now keep it for my sofa, or do I give it as a Christmas gift???....hmmm...

Happy Labor Day everyone!
