Christmas Quilt Along
Welcome to the second month of the Christmas Quilt Along. Today's hostess is Joanna at Needle Thread Happiness. Gosh, she is almost a neighbor! Morning Joanna!! We will be starting to put some of those cut pieces together today. Now you don't have to make the Festive Mystery quilt, grab a Christmas project and sew along with us. I will be using this one blog post for all updates thru the day, so stop back occassionally.
Joanna asked us to share our favorite 60's song or group. I loved the Beach Boys and remembered "Little Saint Nick" - The Beach Boys' Brian Wilson wanted his own Christmas classic. "Little Saint Nick" was released in late 1963 and has been a holiday favorite ever since.
Oh, my , my, - I get to chain my heart out!!! This part should go quickly, and IF I am careful with my 1/4" seam, shouldn't take much trimming up.
I have all my 4-patches finished, trimmed and ready to put in their labeled baggy. I have some errands to run in town and then run the vac to pick up all those threads/trimmings. Then I'll play with my little project until my grandsons come to visit.
Well, the mini base is finished. Now to look for my wools, decide what I want to put in my snowy country window, and then do some applique. Then a little embellishing, stitching, etc.... Gee, I'll have my December Ackfeld hanger mini done! My grands tired me out, so a little nap, dinner, and then I need to sandwich out a quilt. See ya all tomorrow!
