Christmas In July


This is a Christmas table topper, done in July! Depending on your perspective it's ready either five months early or a year and a half late! I found this pattern at the Moda Bake Shop two years ago. It's been pieced for quite some time. Sundance and I quilted it with a pantograph called "Around Corners". The binding is basted in place, I'll finish it up in the next few evenings. I have another one (different fabrics) ready for loading onto Sundance right away! Christmas in July continues; and Hannes is hanging around, just in case Santa makes an appearance... one never knows, and he's been very good so far this year!

Life is Good!

Very nice. I keep hoping that your productivity with finishing ufo's will rub off on me. No luck so far.

I'll bet Hannes is waiting for the cookie elf to leave him a doggie cookie....

That is a fun quilt pattern. And somebody sure knows how to look good for the camera!

I like the "5 months early" idea better . . . and I like the quilt!

The table topper is almost as cute as Hannes! That looks like a Sandy Gervais fabric--love it!
