    I finished this one today. It's a large lap size and I followed the Yellow Brick Road Pattern. I had some older, lesser quality type VIP etc. fabric that I forced myself to use. I figure since it's only going to come out at Christmas, it may hold up for a few years;> I'm going to break out of my comfort zone and FMQ it with gold, metallic thread. Yes, it's July and yes it's a Christmas quilt. It's never to early!

    I love it, I hope you show a picture of the quilting. Never too early to start your Christmas sewing.

    Terry Atkinson patterns are terrific.

    I think you did an exceptional job of selecting Christmas prints which look real rich together. How many different fabrics did you use?

    It is neat that you are stepping out of your comfort zone with the thread for FMQ. Congrats!!
