Christmas projects??




Have you been working on Christmas projects??  I tend to be one who puts off holiday sewing until pretty late in the season.

This table topper was started a couple of years ago, but I have purposed to get it finished so I can use it this Christmas.


It's a pattern from Anka's Treasures.

 The instructions are not clear on how to add the border for this shape, but I will do the best I can.

The holidays are fast approaching!

Happy Quilting!

Very cute Christmas table topper... really like the unusual shape. Isn't it nice to finish a project that has been hanging around for a while?

That log cabin reminds me of a Christmas quilt that I started 20 years ago! Maybe I'll break it out and finish it!!

How wonderful to be on top of those UFO Christmas quilts! I am trying to do that myself this year. So far I have a table runner I need to finish. I figure a Christmas project every year will work and by the time I am a Grandma I will have a home full of beautiful Christmas handmade decorations!

Great piece. I have a table topper I pieced last year but didn't get quilted. Have I done it in the 9 months since Christmas? No! Thanks for the reminder to get on it.

These quilts all look so beautiful! My aunt got me into quilting years ago...but I've only made two finished quilts. I'm working on a queen size quilt for my bed right now, but progress is SO slow!
