I get caught up in the excitement of starting something new. The wonder of its potential greatness. I accomplish just enough to satisfy my need…then something shiny and more pretty catches my eye. Sound familiar?

Uh huh..thought so. Now, since we’re all in the same boat, I guess there won’t be any judgement when I say … I started another Christmas quilt. I just can’t help myself! I have all of this other work to do (UFO’s) and I start another project!? It wasn’t my fault. I was going through my Christmas stash and came across the Anna Griffin Isabelle fabric I had been hoarding.

It’s shiny and pretty. It’s got that vintagey feel.

It’s tough photographing a quilt in 0° weather after a blizzard. I froze my ass off out there today. I have no place to lay it out. So, till the deep freeze melts, you get partial views…and obviously wrinkly ones. Who has time to take perfect pics when your toes are getting frost bite!

I made it with the Fruitcakes pattern and used Kona Snow as the background. I’m gave it my treasured Lakehouse black dot fabric for the flange, backing and binding. And those scallops on the border fabric...you know, the ones you can barely see in the photo… Love it! You’ll have to take my word:)

The guild had a charity sew-in a couple of Saturday’s ago. We donate quilts to breast cancer treatment and surgery patients at Centegra Gaver’s Breast Cancer Center in McHenry County. I whipped up this little lovely. A quick quilt and a great way to use up some stash for a good cause. It’s in Paige’s hands now too. I think she’s gonna be pretty busy…

I did happen to finish 1/2 of a UFO this week. One of two bindings are now marked off my list! I’ll post the entire quilt pic soon.

Until then, pour a glass of wine, put your feet up & enjoy your weekend. You deserve it!
