First up is a peak at my rows coming together for the quilt-along I am participating in. I am about half-way there.
But my most significant and exciting finish for a while is my Christmas quilt. In 2008 I enrolled in the Fat Quarter Shop's 'Designer Mystery Block of the Month'. I really wasn't sure what to expect but am so glad that I signed up. What a fantastic BOM they put together. I managed to make my block each month. The instructions (cutting and piecing) were excellent. The batting I used was bamboo. I had never used this before but had the right sized piece in my stash courtesy of a magazine subscription. Well it has quilted up beautifully. I had it quilted by my local long arm quilter. Because the quilt is so busy we decided an all-over pattern was needed. I can't say enough just how much I love this quilt. Yeah and all the fabrics are from Moda's 'Peace on Earth' range.
I have had all sorts of bother trying to get a photo that I am happy with. It seems that the days I am at home it rains and the days I am at work it is sunny. This is so frustrating for taking photos. Its a pretty photo heavy post but hopefully its some nice eye candy for you.
The following pictures are of my favourite blocks but the first one is probably my number 1 favourite.
This is the back of the quilt. I used some of the scraps to make a label and include it in the backing.
Please don't forget to check out all the other gorgeous finishes for this week at Amy's and let them know you visited.
