Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas my dear QB family!
Thank you so much for a year of wonderful inspirations, joy and even some tears.
May you all have a Christmas full of wonder, peace and joy!
And in case I am not able to get here with all the baking to do today, Merry Christmas to all. I imagine everyone will be busy.
It was nice touching base with my friends here. Most of you. Hoping to see more of you in the new year.
I'm getting ready to have some coffee and breakfast and then off I go to bake. HUGS to all.
Thanks so much for the reply. I shall try the 2012 blocks, and maybe get back to the 2011 BOMs.
At the moment, I don't see BOMs - is that because there are none current? I'm not familar with the board but want to know how to find them when time comes....I love this board. Perhaps I can advance my quilting talents by trying some of these things. I'm a new quilter and self taught, so I do have problems from time to time.
Thank you so much!
A good productive day! I got DH's bib done (special request from him; he's messy) and wrapped. Also wrapped his other gifts while he was gone to the library.
Also got my December BOM swap partner's blocks ready to mail. Her theme is cats so hope she likes these.
I am going to participate in the 50 Fabulous paper-pieced stars group next year. Got the CD for the blocks in the mail today and have been auditioning fabrics for a background. At first I was going to do Quilts of Valor

What is a crumb? What size is it? I am cutting scraps into specific sizes and have small pieces left. Are there people that would want these--I hate to just throw them away. Any info would be helpful.

i make my bias binding 2 inches, fold in half, iron, sew a 1/4" seam. i miter the corners. once sewn, i press the seam outward, fold over the potholder, add some glue stick to the binding,

I visted my mom the last two days and was gone. It was a good visit.
Went to Choctaw Casino in Durant, Ok. with her.
