DWM & FMQ
I haven't had too many things ready for Design Wall Monday - but I remembered I had started this month Jelly Roll quilt long ago. So I dug around to find those and got them laid out on the livingroom floor. I will let my SIL rotate them around until happy (you can see the ones that I had to swap out strips because this JR had so many flaws). I would have liked another row, but not enough strips to use. So I think two borders will bring it up to size.

And I totally kept the blinders on for Black Friday, small business weekend, and Cyber-Monday!! I really DO NOT need fabric. But I did get out this afternoon (while Mom had visitors) with my SIL to do a little local shop browsing and shopping. We've had a little bit of snow each day since Thanksgiving - and the towns are decorating - so it was a lovely outing in the spirit of the season.
And I had to locate this month's FMQ Challenge that I did way in the beginning of the month. Sarah Vedeler was our November FMQ expert and the challenge was spirals in various sizes and directions. I'm a little 'organic' with these, but love the look and I have a project in 'that chair' that I find some large spirals will work perfectly for it. I have enjoyed these monthly challenges and I think for December I am going back to the *bonus* challenges and do them up on a sampler.

Don't forget the Christmas Quilt Show is still open to link-ups - I know you all have projects to share - I have been seeing a whole lot of them all year!
