WIP :: 9/5/12

I totally missed out on this post last week - Wednesday zipped right by me.  The strap of my watch broke the other week and I'll admit that it's a bit harder to check my phone for the day of the week along with the time.

Hard to imagine that it's September even though it gets darker earlier now.  If you have kids or teach kids and want to know a way to get them into (or continue) quilting check out this post for a fun contest.
Here's what I'm linking up over at Freshly Pieced today!

I finished my Christmas quilt!  It's all bound, labeled, washed & photographed.  I am so glad to have a quilt to pull out and snuggle when it gets cold.  Love it.  I even found a nice evergreen bush to give the picture a wintery touch.  :)

The pattern is called 'sweet pea' from Camille Roskelley's book Simplify.  I used a layer cake instead of charm squares to make it larger.  The side stripe was to make it large enough for snuggling.  I pieced the backing from Christmas/holiday fabrics I had in my stash.

  1. Your Christmas quilt looks great!

  2. I love your Christmas Quilt and I think putting that stripe down the edge was a cool modern addition. Great job!
