A Christmas Finish

Yesterday afternoon while watching the NCAA basketball tournament on TV, I finally finished putting together my "Gallery Of Stars" quilt. I have been working on this for quite a while, in small time slots, and decided to get it done so I can have it quilted by Christmas.

The quilt is quite large, which I like, and fits this twin bed nicely. The 'Merry & Bright" fabric has been one of my favorites for a long time and I still have FQ's I haven't cut into yet.
I am still working on my hexagons and have a few other quilts in the works but will be concentrating on getting the customer quilts I have done and delivered before the weather gets nice enough to be outside. Happy Monday everyone!

That quilt looks delicious! It reminds me of the old fashion christmas candy that looked like ribbons...do you know what I'm talking about? My mom use to buy that candy and you had to break it into pieces to get one small enough to fit in your mouth. I would be tempted to get a large clear glass canister and fill it with that candy and place it beside that bed. Yummy.;D

Your Christmas quilt is gorgeous! I love the ribbon candy fabric as well! Too cute! I really like the layout you used. It really high-lights the fabrics used!

Very pretty quilt. I like this fabric too, though it isn't as traditonally christmas as some. But the colors are so nice! You did a nice job on it.

OOOooooooo!! FUN! I love this quilt, but probably because I'm a mom of three girls, and those colors are "ALL-GIRL!"

If "congrats" are in order for your elevator move, then CONGRATS! I made almost the same comment tonight to my DH: "I like being busy and active!" Looks like we're two peas in a pod :0)

Happy Wednesday
