    Christmas in August

    I know that a lot of you will have started your Christmas sewing last month, but for those of us who are slow starters this might make you start!

    They say it takes a minute to find a special person.
    An hour to appreciate them.
    A day to love them, but then an entire life to forget them.

    I just pulled out my Christmas fabric box yesterday wondering what to do with it. Now I know. How adorable is that package quilt. And a good way to use up some of the ribbon I have. Thanks for sharing.

    I went to the site and explored, and she has a lot of great tutorials there. Especially the 3D bow tie bee
    You know that feeling when you've finished all your quilting projects and your studio is perfectly clean???? Me neither.

    It's not how fast you sew, it's how well you sew fast! Wait, I think that's supposed to be MOW!

    wouldn't that make cute Christmas quilts or throws. Actually it would start a quilt tug of war with the grand babies(and Adults) Do you think it would take very long???

    DottyD, thanks so much for both of these sites. Anina's will be great with the tutorial help for each block and the QB site has so much info I am definitely taking the time to scan all the posts. It will probably take me all of one afternoon. LOL
