Countdown to Christmas

Have you started feeling that way yet?  That Christmas is right around the corner and the countdown has begun? 


Have you started working on Christmas projects yet? 


I made this cute Christmas quilt out of the fabric line Countdown to Christmas by Sweetwater.  I used the Schnibbles pattern George. 


It takes two charm packs and some yardage.  This fabric line is so cute!  I love how Sweetwater has words, letters, and/or numbers in all their fabric lines. 


If you love this quilt and want to make one of your own then head over to The Quilted and pick up a kit of your own.


Good news!  We sold our house!  Hooray!  So I have been busy packing and getting ready for our move.  So I don’t know that I will get a lot of sewing done for the next few weeks but I will have a sewing room real soon!!

It really is never too early to work on Christmas projects.  Especially since I usually start them after Thanksgiving and then there isn’t enough time to finish everything on my list.   The nice thing is that Barb from The Quilted B asked me to make this.  I always do better on someone else’s schedule!


The poinsettias are fused on and stitched around by machine.   


I made the binding on the bias to give it that wonderful barber pole look.  I love the cute little button backing.


My next project is another Christmas one and I get to play with Sweetwater’s  Countdown to Christmas.  So cute!


See you again soon!
