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...

Eleanor's Quilt Piecing, and the Christmas QAL!


I'm another step forward with Eleanor's Quilt - actually, I'm a step and a half forward, having completed the blocks for the quilt, and I'm now starting to put them together with their sashing strips. Hurrah!

Never mind that, though - the exciting news this week is that it is the Christmas Quiltalong this weekend! How brilliant is that!

Needle, Thread, HappinessNow don't think that you can bowl up at my doorstep again this month - those biscuits are well and truly gobbled up, but we're off to the east of the U S of A to the home of our hostess Joanna, over at Needle Thread Happiness.

Joanna will have a Mr Linky up on her QAL page on Saturday morning, and you can join in any time Saturday and/or Sunday and have fun stitching with us!

I'm going to be pulling out my Christmas Challenge project and moving forward with that.  Have you taken up QuiltSue's fiendish Challenge?  Can you make a Christmas quilt within the size restrictions, NOT USING red or green fabric.  OUCH!

Then I want to get some more of Eleanor's Quilt put together - actually, I think I might be at the point that I need further advice with that, and I cannot think of a better place to ask than the QAL gang!

  1. Your quilt is going to be lovely! It's fun to follow the progress. I'm going to the beach this weekend, so I won't be around much, but I'm taking some Christmas stitching with me, and I'll check in on Saturday night.

  3. Eleanor's quilt is looking great so far and yes I should be able to pop in on Sunday as Hubby is home on Saturday, so we will be doing things together. See everybody then.

  4. Your blocks look wonderful Hazel. I'll be here bright and early on Saturday, and I am planning on working on my challenge entry to. This part is going to be a real challenge for me I can tell you.
