Nothing on the Wall

That’s because I have been finishing.  Here is my Christmas Quilt 2 all quilted, bound and labeled. 

I have to say that quilting this panel was a big challenge, one that I feared and looked forward to at the same time.

The rest of the quilting was pretty traditional.  I really like this quilt and am glad I finally got to make it.

In my last post I shared pictures of the two applique BOMs that I have fused and are ready for stitching down.  Here is this month’s block for Carol Doak’s Mystery 2012.  I have cut all of the pieces and am ready to, hopefully, stitch today.  If I get that done I will have all of my BOMs up to date for another month....Yea, me!

I also have a short list of Christmas gifts with some work left to do on them.  Sunday I finally decided on the last gift and hope to get that started this week.  I seem to be right on track to have all my gifts, made and purchased, ready before Thanksgiving.  And that is good because I have several new projects rolling around in my head and wanting to get out and I see December as a quiet month of singing Christmas carols, ditzy Christmas movies on TV and fun stitching.  Doesn’t that sound like a fun way to enjoy the holiday season?

The Carol Doak block will take you no time at all.

The quilting is gorgeous. Keep going.... It gets better.

I love your Christmas quilt. I like the fact that the large panel means less piecing so that a special limited-use quilt can go together more quickly. I think this would be a lot of fun to quilt, and am enjoying seeing the quilting in the central panel.

Your use of stripes in that Christmas quilt is wonderful. Hum, Dora had a good point about having an easier to put together quilt for such limited usagage. I'm just beginning to think of making a couple more full size Christmas quilts so all the beds in the guest rooms would be able to be covered in Christmas. Is the Carol Doak mystery done through a Yahoo group, blog or website? And does she do them yearly or more often? Just curious. Love your current header picture.
