Lovely weekend.


We had such fun Saturday at the Store!  HATS AND GLOVES GALORE!! We recvd a very large bin overflowing, and all the gloves and hats that are decorating the store.  Thanks so much for those who sent Gloves & Hats in!  There will be many happy kids staying warm this holiday!  Thank you!


Before the Store opened Saturday I did some sewing for fun!  I made a few blocks using my CROSS & CROWN template set, and cut up some Red and Green Manor Stripes, and Overcast from Meadow Storm.  Throw in some Red and Green solids, and ta da!  Xmas quilt in the works! It's not done yet, but it's fun to see how it could look! See below!







Would you like to WIN a set of the Cross and Crown templates?
Leave me a moment, about which is your favorite holiday to make quilts for?

  13. Halloween Quilts are my favorite followed by Christmas but making a quilt for any day is a reason to sew.

  14. It would have to be Christmas, but usually not full sized quilts! Mostly runners, mini wall hangings, and mug rugs for gifts!

  15. I haven't really made any holiday quilts, more quilts for life events....graduations, baby quilts etc. But Christmas is my favorite holiday. I love this time of year!!

  16. I haven't made a quilt big enough to snuggle in but I've made a lot of quilted table runners, placemats, and the such. I always make them Christmas on one side and autumn themed on the other. When you live in a small studio you make sure everything has a dual purpose. I would definitely make a Christmas quilt if I had the room!

  17. I've never actually made a holiday themed quilt but I have made Christmas table runners and tree skirts. I have some Halloween themed fabric, but I always think of using it too late!

  18. I think I like autumn quilts the most because I love the colors! But Christmas is a lot of fun! Oh, and don't forget patriotic quilts!

  19. I guess Christmas because there are so many different decorative items to make. I don't decorate as much for other holidays!

  41. It's a toss up between 4th of July and Christmas. I love how you make a new Christmas quilt every year. I wish I were as steady! lol Usually I start a quilt for the season when I get in the mood of the holiday and then finish it late so it ends up being for the NEXt year, ahead of schedule bwahaha
