Having been given a jelly roll and a quilting book for Christmas 2010, there is no excuse not to get on with quiltmaking.

Here's what happened next...

Christmas QAL - July - final part

I hope you've all had a lovely weekend over here with me - I've had a smashing time!

I've finished my candle block (bar the applique flame) and cut the pieces for my two star blocks for the Challenge - and I'm where I want to be on this project at this point.

I've done some baking, stretched the ol' grey matter a bit and been around the world admiring what everyone has been up to - the best bit of the Quiltalong!

Just before I go off to bed with my hot chocolate and Christmas biscuits, I have to say thank you to QuiltSue for coming up with the mad no-red-or-green Challenge for a small Christmas project, and to Joanna who's sharing hosting with me.

Thank you to everyone who signed up on the Mr Linky which allowed us to have a good ol' nose round; and to everyone who came and had a look but didn't take part.  Will you join us next month?

And as a thank you, I'd like to offer out this yard of 'Secret Garden' fabric.  Our local dept store which has a small haberdashery/wool/fabric section had selected yard packs on sale (75% off!) the other day - and I had a bit of a rush to the head and ended up with *ahem* rather more than I can sensibly use.

Anyone who's participated today will go in the hat, and I'll pick a winner tomorrow.

For next month - 10th/11th August - we're back to Joanna's for more fun and fabrics.  You coming?
