Off the Design Wall..

This quilt came off my design wall this weekend. It's been there since September. Friday was Elf Day at my LQS and I decided to make this my focus project for the day. It's all been sewn into rows and then I attached pairs of rows together. It's in 4 pieces so I've made major progress this weekend. I'm not going to say that it'll be finished this month but I'm hoping for a finish early next year. I've had to label each row to make sure I assemble it correctly.

I've got to find a better way to manage threads. When do you clip threads?

We've been busy with holiday preparations. Tree has been put up and some shopping accomplished. Lots more to do. It's going to be a crazy few weeks! Hoping you all have time for some happy stitches this week!

It looks sooooo gorgeous, Jackie! Can't wait to see it all put together! We got our tree up this weekend too. It's fun to get into the Christmas spirit! I'm feeling it more this year than the last couple of years, so it's nice!

Wonderful that you got so much done on your quilt at this time of year, Jackie. I'm finding it hard to get any stitching done between the shopping, decorating, baking, etc.

Have fun with your remaining Christmas preparations :)

Pretty red and green blocks! Clip threads, what is that? :)

Shopping and decorating has barely started here.

LOL. Sometimes I NEVER clip threads! But I do when I realize if I send this out to someone they will think I am a bad bad quilter.
