Bloggers' Quilt Festival


Amy's Creative Side




This Christmas sampler measures 56" x 72" and I machine pieced and quilted it.

Once again, it takes a deadline (thank-you Amy) to get me to post.  I'm going to try to get better at this, but right now here is my entry in the Bloggers' Quilt Festival at Amy's Creative side.

I had two sets of 12"blocks from a block a month we did in my small quilt group a few years ago.  There was a wedding coming up and I thought I'd put together the blocks for the gift.  Once I finished it, I had second thoughts.  Traditionally, I give the couple a make-up quilt (see a previous post for that story) and I didn't see them making up under the Christmas quilt. There was a deadline so I was able to make the cozy throw in time for the wedding.  Perhaps that will be my next post.  So this is one more UFO off my list.

I hope you finish your UFO's, too.
