Christmas in July

It's beginning to look at lot like...

I've bitten off more than I can chew!
LOL... So what's new...

The ladies that I do the SLY Market with are working
on a Christmas in July contest.
Sort of a good reason to get off our
bums and sew something!

This is the Line by Line Jelly Roll quilt that I'm hopefully making for Jillian's Christmas present. Poor baby... she's the only one with an undecorated room. And before you gasp, let me just say this... she'll get new paint when she stops writing on her darn walls! Her bedding and stuff is that Shabby Chic line from Target... which I am STILL totally in love with. It's so crisp and yummy and cheap.. hhmm. sorry, I meant chic!! Anyway, her new room will be done in the same Shabby stuff, but actually done... with coordinating walls, furniture, etc.


Corrie at Quilt Taffy promised me that this was a good beginners quilt. And really, it is VERY beginner friendly. I'm more concerned about copying one of the fabric patterns onto the wall... Anyhow, I thought I'd show you what I've gotten done in a few hours. I think I like this! Quilting that is. And this 3 Sister's Simplicity fabric is so nice to work with. I may have to get more to make the girls some dresses with.

So, here's a big THANK YOU to Corrie for all of your help. I'll be coming back for more real soon!

Love the fabric you are using for your quilt - hopefully it will be the first of many!!!

You did post a picture! Good for you! It's looking great. I want to see it when it's done. Glad it's going well. Take care, Corrie
