Christmas Quilt revisit


Sew Cal Gal is hosting a Christmas Quilt Show!  I had hoped to crank out another Christmas quilt but haven't got there yet so here is this one!  I love it!  And of course,  I have already blogged about this quilt. Sorry!  I don't want to be boring!  I love that the colours are not traditional.  The fabric is 12 Days of Christmas by Kate Spain for Moda and the pattern is Trees for Sale by Sandy Gervais and what a great pattern!  I used some other fabrics for the borders and binding.  I stippled it all over.  All set for Christmas snuggles!

As for yesterday's baking... Husband made a Cranberry Orange Pound Cake that was to die for and I took it to work and made my staff totally happy.  The cookies are Spritz and are shaped in a cookie press to look like wreaths and the round cookies are basically a shortbread with currants, rolled in icing sugar.  The recipe calls for pecans but because of some family nut allergies we started using currants.  Now the kids think it is messed up if they are made with nuts.  So funny!

Today he made buns and butter tarts.  He told me that I need to lock up the flour because he cannot stop baking.  Silly!

What do you do when a grade 2 flushes a pencil down the boy's loo?  Yep, all in a day's work!  Have a lovely rest of your day, I am off to an Elementary School Carol Festival and will be listening to our school's choir singing away as well as many other little darlings.

  9. These are the perfect Christmas colors for our house. :D We have a coastal-themed home with blues everywhere, including the upper portion of the living room, so we need Christmas fabrics with blue to tie everything in with the holiday's traditional colors. :D Love your quilt.

  13. A great happy cozy quilt! I read you are on a small bluberry farm. I visited a quilt shop in Michigan, on a bluberry farm, where her husband had built her an addition on the farm house so she could have a quilt shop! All fat quarter bundles came in bluberry pails! Thanks for sharing!
