quilting around the {retro} Christmas tree...

I've been going full tilt here this week... the Open House and Vintage Market will be here before I know it! (Info for both is on my right sidebar  --> )This is just a little of what has been going on in the sewing room lately...

I finished quilting my reindeer stitcherie quilt, bound it, and ran it through the washer and dryer... I love it! I'm sure that for a quilter, nothing beats that crinkly goodness!

Here's a close up of rudolph...


I made a Christmas bunting to match, using coordinating 12 Days of Christmas pieces to match... and also another bunting based on a fabulous Michael Miller retro print.













And just this morning I finished off this awesome quilt top, and am so happy with it although I have NO idea how I'll manage quilting it on my small machine! (Pssst... Santa... are you there...?) I took this while standing on a chair and barely got it all in one picture!


It was a kit I purchased from Amy Smart and I'm so glad I did... having all the fussy cut squares delivered to my door was well worth the money, and her pattern made it a snap to put together. The square I placed in the centre is my favorite...
So now it's either time to figure out how to quilt this sucker or start something new! I'm sure I'll keep you posted!
