I've been having a ball making more Hope Valley string blocks yesterday and today. I'm loving this quilt!
I also started quilting Countdown to Christmas. I'll be all ready for next year!
I'm using my snowflake [edited - I was wrong about the type of boards I was using]
Quilt-EZ Handi-Quilter sew boards. Idiot-proof quilting at its finest - LOL!
Next up is going to have to be a wedding quilt (one of at least two I have to make this year). I just found out (thank goodness for Facebook) that the first wedding we have to go to is in March. Yikes! I really want to get Hope Valley pieced first though.
I also wanted to show some fabric goodness Santa brought! My husband went on a charm pack hunt on eBay for Christmas. He thought, bless him, that he was getting such great deals with the "42-piece sets" of fabric he was buying. He was SO disappointed when he started getting these little charm packs in the mail. I couldn't stop laughing when he was telling me on Christmas morning as I was opening them. He knew the names Amy Butler and Moda, so told me he chose some of those (and I was still laughing), but he did good...
He also got a 4-charm-pack of Thimbleberries that he loved (guess who will be getting a quilt from them!) I told him these charm packs are perfect to use with the new Another Bite of Schnibbles book Santa also brought me. Ho Ho Ho!
