Finished, Nearly Finished and ...

... Not Finished, but Getting There.

OK, you're wondering what on earth I'm wittering on about now I bet, so I'll explain, in reverse order:

Not Finished, but Getting There is my Heartfire quilt designed by Lynn.  I have all the blocks sewn into rows, and some of the rows sewn together, and here it is

Nearly Finished is my Country Charmer top.  The grand parade is over at Cuddly Lesley's, on 30 November.  My top is not quilted yet, but it is finished for now.

Finished is my entry for the Christmas QAL challenge - you know, the one where we make a quilt on the theme of Christmas without using red or green.  The binding's on, and I'm ready for the Grand Parade which will be here, over the second weekend in December (on 14 -15 December).  Do you want to see the finished quilt now?  OK, here it is

So I've been busy, but there will be no more progress on these cos the postman brought me some yummy fabrics today and I have some Christmas presents to make with them.

  3. Hmmm! Getting there and such a good feeling I expect. I won't be able to show any progress on my Xmas QAL. I'm afraid I don't even know where it is, but I'll finish it for next year. Take care.

  5. Look At You! Gettin' Stuff Done & Nearly Done! Looking Forward to the Weekend...although...I find my Country Charmer is still wanting a little more "customizing" before it's really done and ready to quilt.

  9. You have been very productive Sue! You are ahead of me.....oh dear, I need someone to build a fire under me to get me working on my Heartfire. Love the applique in your blocks! I never knew the hysterical applique lesson at the cabin would ever "take hold." I still laugh every time I think about you and Nancy.
