Christmas in February

 I have my 3 additional blocks made for my Christmas quilt. I stayed off the phone and got them all right this time!! lol
Here's the setting I am using. I figure if I can piece 3 blocks a month for 7 months, then work on the setting, I should be able to get it finished by Christmas 2013. That's the plan anyway. This should be great to highlight some wonderful quilting.

My son made it Denmark and the quilt is in Lene's hands. That's all I know. Yay, for the power of the quilt!!!

  3. I do like your "x blocks a month" plan. I'm using it to make progress on some of my stalled out projects. Little bites make the work more palatable!
    Happy blocks!

  9. I am loving your Christmas quilt enough to be inspired to start one of my own. But, self control is winning out (for now) and I'll just quilt vicariously along with you.
