Christmas Quilt Show

SewCalGal Christmas Quilt Show copy

SewCalGal is hosting a fabulous Christmas Quilt Show and I have decided to enter it by putting this Christmas quilt in that I made last year.

I loved sewing it as it involved Dresden plates which I really like and enjoy sewing. The fabric is all Christmassy patterned and so to have this up this Christmas will be great as it wasn't finished last year as it needed to be quilted.

The next parcel I am waiting on is from Hancock’s Of Paducah….of course it will have fabric in it hehehe. It shouldn’t be too far away now. Then I can start to sew my new wall hanger I have designed in EQ7 and maybe one of the quilts from the Schnibbles book.

Hope you all are having a fabulous week and hugs to you all ……..Vicki
