A reminder that this Saturday is the Christmas Quilt Along. The Fiestive Mystery Quilt can certainly be done in any fabric/color and we are just getting into the first block construction so don't feel like you are too far behind to join in. OR join us with some other little giftie project. This month's Quilt-A-Long hostess will be Joanna at Neelde Thread Happiness. I have my quilt fabrics cut and ready and a small project on the side.
And 'Made in Cherry' is officially finished. I chose to use 2" scrappy red squares and machine quilted with a diamond cross-hatch. I used a craft weight felt for batt - spritzed with water and hot air dried to shrink - then ironed to felt. This is one wallhanging that 'hangs straight'.
I used a Windham reproduction for backing and same for binding. This will be entered in our quild show and hopefully in our regional Quilter's Hall of Fame show (by invite). (32" square)

A lot of projects to finish by the end of this month - a lot of my side buttons will be coming down at the end of the month - BUT I have a list of new ones that will be added for April. Hope you are progressing (and joining in) with your Bingo Cards - more prizes have been donated. Selina thank you for your triangle trims - I am already sewing them up tonight - just had to play with them!
