After the guild's Christmas party.....

I have been going through applique withdrawal, so when they asked for people to take blocks home and work on them for the guild's president's quilt and I saw that it was applique, I snatched them up. 
I am not sure of the layout of this quilt, but I love the colors. 
I, also, came away with a prize for our fabric bingo game (our fabric bingo "cards" were donated to the guild for charity quilts).
This is what I picked out from the pile of prizes.
The cover of this book sold it for me!  I think this quilt is on my bucket list....someday. 
Also, got the next two patterns for the seasonal calendar...Santa and a Snowman.  They BOTH have to be done by the next meeting.  Nothing like putting on the pressure what with the holidays.
Ok...off to do some applique


  1. I love the colors in those blocks, too!! You suddenly have a lot of projects going. That never happens to me! LOL

  2. Congrats on your win - the cover quilt looks awesome! I hope you get your calendar blocks finished on time for your next meeting.
    Love the blocks you are working on for your guild too!

    Wishing you and your family all the Joys of the Holiday Season!

  3. Love the grey and yellow blocks... the new "in" colors. Your prize book definitely looks like a keeper! Enjoy the season!

  4. Those colors are fab in the blocks. and that book is great, I have it too, the cover sold me on it!

  5. I think as quilters, Pressure is our middle name!! Love the look of your prize book...can see why you are dreaming of that cover quilt...it is fabulous.

    Wishing you a beautiful Christmas and a wonderfully creative New Year.

    (Yes, the kids landed safely in the midst of our snowstorm! - Hooray for Delta pilots!)



My husband built me some shelves for the "stash" closet so that I no longer have to stack all my large Rubbermaids on top of eac...
