I don’t have much to show as it is hard to get a photo of the big bunch of quilt on the table in the process of machine quilting- it is just straight lines so nothing spectacular about it! I can say I am half way done!! About 6-8 hours of quilting? Not really sure as I have not kept track. I did work pretty steadily Tuesday morning and then again an hour or two in the afternoon and the same yesterday. All of the lines are done going in one direction and now to turn it this morning and work going the opposite direction – I don’t know how much I will get done with as the afternoon will be a cookie baking day. All of my give away winners got in touch with me and I will try to get the packages in the mail on Friday.

The Christmas decorating has been complete. It is so much fun having a small dining room now to decorate too – for those that don’t know Mike and I added this on to the house ourselves and finished it two years ago shortly before Christmas. Now you see why it is hard to try to do the machine quilting at the table – the table extends to seat 8 so it is big enough-just too tall! I am linking my Christmas Decorating up with Cozy Little House.
One of the Christmas quilts made over the years.
The big Baltimore Christmas Album quilt that I finished in 2010.
On the table is my small version of a bigger quilt called “Dutch Treat” I like the colors for Christmas even though it is not a true green in any way. Dutch Treat was one of those quilts that you really think you want to make and then – for me – quickly lost interest in – maybe because I had just finished two Dear Jane quilts shortly before and I really should have went to some quick and easy quilts for a change first perhaps!
