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 - August pt1

Needle, Thread, Happiness

Good morning, good morning!

It's the second weekend in the month, and that means it's time for the Christmas Quiltalong!  Joanna at Needle Thread Happiness is hosting this month, and is very much on the ball with Mr Linky ready and waiting on her Christmas QAL page.

Are you up for the Challenge that QuiltSue has set us? Can you make a Christmas quilt within the size restrictions not using red or green fabric??  Oh my!

Even if you aren't up for the Challenge, do join us to work on your Christmas projects - wouldn't it be good to be ahead of the game come December?

For my Challenge project, I'm going for yellows, blacks, golds and browns for my candle and star table runner - I'm going to be making the star blocks this weekend.

I'd also like to make more progress on Eleanor's Quilt - it's sash-tastic over my neck of the woods!

Oh - and for scarecrow fans, Grumpy George might be putting in an appearance here too a little later...


  1. Looks like you have a great plan for the day and look forward to visiting with Grumpy George.

  2. Grumpy George is our Christmas QAL mascot so we want to see him for sure. Your projects look so neat and organized and well done.

  3. Eleanor's quilt is looking good! Hope Grumpy George is doing a good job in the garden!

  4. You have a great plan for the weekend. I do like stars.

  5. Your table runner is going to look lovely and rich in those colours.

    I'm looking forward to seeing what Grumpy George has been up to as well.

  6. Eleanor's quilt seems to be progressing nicely.
    Looking forward to seeing more of the table runner.
