catching up

I've started machine quilting Jaime's Christmas quilt, finished the first row on Santa's Coming, and pieced my two blocks for guild this week. A productive week!!!! Our guild is doing a block of the month; each person drew a month and must bring the pattern and instructions for a 6 inch and 12 inch block. That way we will learn piecing techniques, drafting different size blocks, and how the block should be made. I drew the first month! I picked a cakestand block and drew it in EQ. I like the smaller version best. I'm going to make both sizes so I will have two quilts when we are done, one in "my" colors and a smaller one in 30's.

I think Santa's Coming will be such a cute Christmas quilt; and it was so much fun doing the invisible machine applique. I love it because it's so fast and looks so good.
Jaime will be in tomorrow for the weekend so I'll lose my sewing room for a few days but it will be so wonderful to have her home. Happy Quilting!
