Oh My Gosh, Christmas is Coming...I'm stitching like a mad woman!

I'm feeling the pressure of setting myself the goal of sew many Christmas projects. Why do I do this to myself??? I feel like a crazy woman, but at least I actually have some finishes this week, or almost finishes. {It's really hard to photograph them in the dark!}

Anyway, here's what I've accomplished this week for Making Christmas! I have almost all of my Cubic Rhythm quilt quilted. I just have one small inner border to do, binding and done!

The blue is the border that still needs to be quilted.

Color Me Quilty!



  1. I love they way you are quilting your cubic rhythm quilt. The hooked feathers are fab but I really like the spirals too. Also love your dog mats - I thought about them when I was making my cheap and cheerful blanket for Lucy. Luckily she's a rolling in mud and real bones type of dog so I don't think she'll mind :)

  2. awesome progress! i overbooked myself for handmade christmas gifts, too. got a lot done last night though!

  3. Lovely job! I know I'll be stitching like a mad woman as well!

  4. Oh you are already a master quilter!
