Into the Vortex

It's a quilting vortex and I got sucked in!! LOL Here's my version of the 12 Days of Christmas that Temecula Quilt Co put out. Did I have other projects I should have been working on? Of course! But this was so much fun!!

This pin cushion was such a thoughtful gift from Megan at Will Work for Fabric. Thank you so much!!
As I'm hand sewing the binding down I'm also quilting in the scallop so it's going a bit slow. I've got one side DONE!
I may have to quilt one more straight line at the bottom of the triangles. It seems like it might need more.

  5. I finished up my 12 Days quilt today, too. It was so much fun, just one little block a day. I hope to post a picture on my blog tomorrow. I understand the having other projects to work on, too. Lots to do but a new project is just too much fun not to start! I love the fabrics in the DJ picture, so pretty!

  13. Looking good, what a great finish this will be for you. My heart would be beating a little faster the closer I got to finished. The Temecula quilt was a sweet little project, I enjoyed watching it daily but did not do it. Happy Stitching Lori

  20. Scalloped binding looks scary. You must be so thrilled to be nearing the finish line on this beauty!

  21. Your scallop border and binding are a work of art just in themselves. Take the time to add the extra quilting. You'll always look at it and wish you had.

  22. LOVE how your DJ is coming along. It's fabulous! And the Temecula blocks are adorable!
    I see you have the Take2 icon on your blog...how'd you do that??? I've done my little hearts and am anxiously awaiting the next installment. Oh and my Pink Lemonade is also coming along! THANKS

  25. Look at you go! My friend is working on the 12 days of Christmas, but I"ve resisted. I did start the Take 2 in red/cream. Your DJ is going to be amazing. Are you going to put it in Sisters?

  26. I was very tempted to make that 12 days quilt too :0) Your version is lovely. The scallops are looking wonderful. Only 3 more sides!! You're getting closer and closer!

  27. I am so excited for you about your Dear Jane quilt. I haven't even started mine and yet I am already wondering how it should be quilted. Did you have a plan for yours with an overall design idea or did you quilt it by just filling in the spaces with whatever struck you at the moment?
