I actually feel like I’ve made a lot of progress on my in the last week. I finally finished the binding on my the Christmas quilt I made from the leftover Christmas fabrics I had after I made my crazy quilt. I think I’ll call the quilt Yuletide Magic, after the panel that I used as the focal point for the blocks.  I promise to get a blog post up about the quilt soon.

Christmas Quilt

My rabbit medallion quilt is also coming along nicely. The center section is cut out and the first two borders are sewn on. You can read more about the 1st border in Monday’s post, and I’ll be blogging about my 2nd border next week. I’m really excited with how the quilt is looking so far. Even if my blocks aren’t perfect (and they definitely aren’t), the bright colors are making me happy. That’s something I really need this time of year, as the days get shorter and it gets dark before I get home from work.


And then I couldn’t sleep last night, so I worked up the first block for my Easter crazy quilt. It still needs the embellishments sewn down, and all of the hand work done, but I’m pleased with how the block is looking so far.

What projects are you working on right now? Are you making much progress?

      Thanks so much Cathy! I’m having lots of fun working on this project.

    I’d like more “info” about your Easter crazy quilt. I want to do something like that (with lace etc) to make wedding quilts for my grand daughters (for FUTURE!!!!) weddings…incase I am not quilting at that time. I’d love to hear how you create your blocks etc. Thanks

      Thanks for stopping by Cheri! crazy quilt blocks are lots of fun to make. I have a basic tutorial on the piecing process on my blog, but hope to do an updated tutorial soon, showcasing my process for adding the lace and other embellishments.

    Love the bright colors and the scrap jar stars on your medallion! Very nice!

      Thanks so much Rachel! I didn’t know the stars were called “Scrap Jar Stars”. I guess you learn something new every day.

    Congrats on finishing the binding for your Christmas quilt, Andrea. I am lovin’ that rabbit medallion quilt! Those bright happy colours make me smile, too!

      Thanks Lorna! I actually made even more progress on the rabbit medallion quilt last night. I’m now about 1/3 of the way thru making the churn dash blocks for the next border.

      Thanks so much Angie. I’m glad you had time to stop by the blog. Hosting this week’s linkup must have kept you pretty busy.
