Christmas Goodies

It’s time to put away the fall and bring out the winter. Christmas Goodies, from the book Ladybug, Ladybug... by Black Mountain Quilts, was an enjoyable quilt to make for the holidays with its gingerbread cookies and peppermint candies – fun and festive. I made the quilt top a couple of years ago and finally had it quilted this year. Cathy did another excellent job in quilting it – notice the “Merry Christmas” on the gold strips. See Bliss' quilt here.

Saying goodbye to another friend...

My friend, Melissa is moving (Take a look at her fabulous blog)

So sad for me. Can you guess what her going away present was?

A quilt.

Of course!

Note the kitten at the top.... my son thought it would add a nice touch to the photo.

Giveaway Win

Yep! I actually won something! A big thanks to Shari at Mumsyblossom's World for sending this wonderful Australian magazine my way. When I opened my mailbox and saw the envelope from Shari, I could hardly wait to open it. If you haven't seen any of the Australian quilting magazines, you are missing out. Their projects are soooo nice. Now all I need to do is decide on which project to start first!

Pumpkin Patch

Here is another fall quilt I started and finished this year. It went together really fast and then I had Cathy quilt it -- and she did a wonderful job in quilting it too. The pattern for "Pumpkin Patch" is found in the book Season to Season by Patchwork Moon. On the pattern it says "little details like quilted stars, leaves, and pumpkins make this harvest wall hanging 'fall-tastic'!" So true!
