    Christmas before last I received a lovely boxed collection of 20 fat quarters from a dear friend. I had Margot Languedoc's pattern...I Can't Believe It's a Beginner...and thought it might be a great way to use the entire collection. By adding another fq that the same friend and I ran across while attending an out of town quilt show, and some of my own neutrals, and the large border fabric from my stash, I was able to complete this quilt top. It doesn't have a single Christmas print in it...but I named it Everyday IS Christmas. I particularly like the way the accent border floats between the red. Thought I'd share the pattern with everyone...it's an easy one to use as an alternative to Turning Twenty. Oh, Deb, thanks again for everything!

    Thanks so much! And, YES, you can make this one...it is quite straight forward and easy to manage...just a few pins needed to get it to points perfect. The Pattern Basket produced this one designed by Margot Languedoc and the name really is "I Can't Believe It's a Beginner". If you can't find it locally, try www.thepatternbasket.com.
