Christmas QAL–October


I don’t have much time to post, because I am busy sewing.  But I missed August (beach trip) and September (Alaska), so I made sure I’d be home today.

Of course, the main project that I plan to complete today is my Challenge quilt.  Quilt Sue issued a challenge for the QAL, and I have to agree that it was certainly a challenge!  If we accept the challenge, we are to make a Christmas quilt (easy enough) without using RED or GREEN (HUH!?!).  Well we all put on our thinking caps, and there are some very nice quilts out there!  Jolly Jo is our hostess this month, and Happy Hazel will be back with us next month.


I’ve been struggling with the final design element for this, and while walking through my office the other day, I saw something on a coworkers wall that I instantly knew was the perfect solution!  What do you think?


Check back later to see what happens next.






A couple of months ago, I sorted through my scraps and made a pile of HST’s. and I finally got back to them and put them together. 


Due to my inability to read/interpret/follow instructions, it is not the right size, so I’m presented with the opportunity to redesign.  Because I am NOT taking it apart, or remaking all those HST’s!

I’m also working on a secret project.

And now I must get back to stitching!  I’ll be back later.
