Once again my Christmas Quilt-a-long was catch-as-catch-can. A friend who has been gone since October came over to visit this morning after just arriving back in the Yukon. When he left around 1 p.m. I got a little bit of sewing in, until my grandkids arrived around 3 p.m. to spend the night. It is after 10 p.m. and DH is reading them a story prior to bed. We’ve walked the dog, made homemade pizza for supper, had a sauna and then a bath, played Candyland and now they are finally tired and I’m finally able to show the sewing I got done today.
Four more blocks for my red and white Christmas mystery quilt. I thought I had four blocks done, but when I went to get them to hang them all on the wall together, I found I had only made two last month. Here are the six completed ones together. I have six more to make.
Isn’t this a pretty design!
I plan to take this project to the quilt retreat next week, so maybe I’ll be able to jump ahead and get six blocks done and next month I can start on Quilt Sue's mystery quilt. Sue is the ultimate hostess of Christmas Quilt-a-long and she has designed a mystery Christmas quilt for us this year. This month was instalment # 3. You can pick up instalment # 1 from Hazel at Hazel's Quilts, who was our hostess in February and instalment # 2 from Joanna at Needles, Thread, Happiness. She was our hostess in February.
Instalment # 3 can be found here at Lesley’s blog The Cuddle Quilter. Lesley was our hostess with the mostest for April and she even has a giveaway! And you can check out all the Christmas Quilt-a-long quilters by following the Linkys on her blog. Some of them might has some sneak peeks of Quilt Sue’s mystery quilt in the making.
