I feel like I’ve made a lot of progress in the last week. I finished all the blocks for the Christmas quilt I’m making with the left over fabric from my Christmas Crazy Quilt. Then I got those blocks put together for a finished top, pieced the back, and quilted it. Now all that’s left is to finish the binding! I love that this lap quilt coordinates with my Christmas crazy quilt.

I also got started with piecing blocks for my Rabbit Medallion quilt. You may remember a couple weeks ago when I shared with you my hand drawn layout of the quilt. Since then, I digitized the plan, which helped me to choose the blocks I wanted to use. The first border will be hourglass blocks. They are all pieced together – Generations Quilt Patterns was super helpful in getting dimensions figured out to make my blocks. I hope to get them added to the medallion center before the weekend.

    Well done you! The lap quilt is lovely. I like the dark “jewel” tones.
    I finally finished my friend’s baby quilt and am binding it. I was given some scraps of fabric and in among were some squares and rectangles of cotton sheeting that someone had started to cut into dust cloths, got bored and left. So I now have some base bits to turn into experimental crazy quilt blocks. Tra-la!

      I love that idea! I really think you’ll enjoy the outcome. My first blocks were very rudimentary compared to what I can do now, but it was great fun to experiment with all that fabric.

    Wow, the Christmas lap quilt is really nice – I love the idea of having holiday-themed quilts, I need to get on that if I’m going to make something for this year! I might too many WIPs to finish up first, though! 🙂

      I know how you feel. The first Christmas quilt I made was started last fall and only got finished 2 weeks ago. And I’d also started a Halloween quilt last fall, which didn’t get quilted until the spring. Sometimes I think that’s better though. You might be able to get your holiday fabrics on sale if you start after the holiday, and sometimes it’s nice to work on things off season, when it’s not the type for fabric or design that you see every day.

    Love the brights and darks in one post 🙂 Congrats on being so far ahead of the xmas curve!

      I’m trying, since I was SOOOOO far behind last year.

    Wow you are well ahead of me when it comes to my Christmas projects. I too love jewel tones too and the hourglass blocks are lovely and refreshing.

      Thanks so much Lucy! I’m really enjoying the break from my usual darker and more neutral color palettes.
