    Cool What do you quilt over the holiday

    Being someone who does not do Christmas. What will other people be doing?

    I hope to be finishing a few projects especially my Japanese puzzle quilt. If finish those have
    2 baby quilts to make before April and more spicy spiral table runners.

    I'll be working on Bonnie Hunter's Mystery Quilt, and all the other projects that are almost finished!

    I do do Christmas but I am off the week between Christmas and New Years. I will be starting on a Christmas BOM that I bought over the course of this year.

    I will work on a baby quilt with elephants; and a feminine lap quilt with a large scale floral print and a ribbon print.

    I have tons and tons, (well it seems like it anyway), of scraps! I decided this early a.m. that from here on out I am focusing on strip lap quilts. I intend to keep making the squares til I run out of scraps! Won't that keep me busy? So 2013 is the year of strip quilts to do! Starting today! The fun part of this is, you can make a square in just a few minutes before I leave for work, or just too tired to think. Easy peasy!

    I do some Christmas (it's a lunch thing here) but I know that I will be stitching after the family leaves in mid afternoon for their next Christmas dinner. I'll continue to stitch on one of my many UFO's and may even give myself permission to start a new scrap quilt just because it is Christmas.

    I'm finishing up a Cars quilt (from the movie) for a little boy. It'll be his Christmas present - I have a king size quilt that I'm piecing that is probably over half finished. I want to get it on the frame by Christmas. I don't do Christmas either Dottymo...

    I will be going on a quilt retreat(8 friends) leaving Dec 27-Dec 31. This is the first time for me at this time of year. I will be working on a paper pieced log cabin small quilt and also a snowman quilt I have hand appliqued the blocks and will be adding saw toothed star blocks. I am looking forward to this retreat getaway.

    We have our Family Christmas, the Sat. before Christmas, that way my kids can stay home xmas day with their children and let them play with their gifts, and have their time together. So all my holiday sewing for other people will be done and I can get back to the quilt I was working on, and have almost finished before the rush was on. The pressure is off and I can work at a more relaxing pace.

    Our holiday is very low key, so for the last three years I've joined in on Bonnie Hunter's mystery. They are always complicated enough to be interesting.
    you can see 2010 and 2011 here.

    I love this time of year, always admire how others go out to decorate, just too lazy to do it myself
