Whew!

Finally...although I don't know why...I'm feeling like things have slowed down a little...never mind that Christmas is on the way and I'm behind on all my projects...for whatever reason things seem a little slower this week. What was it about September and October? They seemed so rushed! Just this afternoon I finished my Cameos Christmas quilt top...the colors in the photo didn't come out as bright as they actually are...the pictures when I first posted this are a better representation of the true colors.


Last month I completely missed the boat on my Charming Girls' Quilt Club projects...although I did finish quite a few projects, I forgot to post about them! I really appreciate Kelly's idea to have this club...it's great motivation!


So...to get back on track this month...my first goal will be to piece a scrappy back for my Christmas Cameo quilt, and my second goal for Charming Girls' is to make my Cobblestones quilt top for the Fig Tree Club (can't wait to make this quilt)! My third goal (and I don't have a photo for this one) is to finish the November Tisket a Tasket block from Anne (it comes out tomorrow)! I do have quite a few other things to finish this month, but I can't share them either...Schnibbles and gifts mostly!
Hope you have a wonderful day!

Your Christmas Cameo quilt top has come out very well. The fabrics have a happy & jolly look to them. I am not familiar with the Cobblestone pattern. I will be watching for a photo.

Your Christmas quilt is so FUN! I can't wait to see that Cobblestone quilt finished. Looks like it is going to be a nice quilt. I love seeing all the Tisket Tasket baskets when they are done, it will be time to make a quilt with them soon.

Your Christmas quilt is pretty. Love the fabric you have chosen for the cobblestones. It is a pretty pattern.

Nanette Merrill and daughters said...

Oh I love the cameos. Isn't that how life is. Speed up and then slow down. I'm finishing some projects so I feel like I'm ready to start Christmas things. Then my daughter came to me and asked me to make her a specific quilt. She wanted me to try to make it in 3 days. I think it is a good project for January really. Your Christmas quilt is done just in time.

Sachiko said...

Ahhh... I always enjoy looking at your creatins. I love that quilt!

Michelle said...

Your quilt is so beautiful. I want to make one now. What is the name of the fabric you used for the border?
