Vintage Quilt Along

17 October 2012

A couple of months ago, Heidi from Fabric Mutt started a Quilt-Along.  I just happened to have some Christmas fabric laying around that needed to be put to good use.  And so a new quilt was started!
And now .....





It is finished!  This is my first holiday related quilt and I love it.  I don't know about you but my favorite part of the quilting process is piecing the top.  And my least favorite is basting, I absolutely dread basting a large quilt!  

Well, since the surgery, I'm not allowed to crawl around on the floor and baste quilts.  My wonderful hubby says I have to wait at least 6 months to do that!  He's uber protective of me, mainly because he knows I push myself too far.  But in this instance, I gladly obliged .... as long as I could send it to a long-armer!

And that's exactly what I did!  I normally don't shell out the money for that kind of thing but oh my goodness, it was wonderful!  I love seeing all the fantastic designs they can do!  

I picked a snowflake pattern and it adds so much to the quilt!







I'll be linking this up with the wonderful Heidi!


And the 4th Quarter Finish-A-Long!
