Well my swap went postal on monday, sorry not near as stylish as some of the ones I am seeing but hopefully it can be used for something.
Thanks for letting me partisapate, it was fun.

I made a table runner with the other 3 blocks but still have to sew down the binding. 5 FQs made both, binding included. :D
My mouth came open and a real sigh escaped when I saw the last pic of your quilt. Those fabrics are really cute! I almost feel silly at my reaction....but nice work! :D

I am sitting here going through this thread, gawking at the pics of the progress and finished items, drooling all over they keyboard. I am supposed to be cleaning, but I sat down for a cup of coffee and thought I'd visit at the QB, which I hadn't done for a few days. Now, here I still sit. I'm all motivated to go work on my project, and I am so busy that I can't. Besides, I have my machine torn apart pretty good (that should be pretty bad). NO worries, I will have mine out on time, though. I'm too excited right now not to be able to go sew/quilt!

Lookie what came! Lacelady does it again! I promise I did not rig the pairing up! You have to believe me! Anyhoo, just look at this holiday beauty. The quilting is out of this world! I hope you can see it okay. Lesley, if you have better pictures, please post them. It's dreary and cold here today and my pictures are not doing your quilt justice.

Bones also received a present and there were some lovely Fall fabrics in the package. Thanks again Lesley. I love everything!

The candle tops flicker with metallic fabric.

The back is pretty too. And maybe the quilting will show up better in this shot.

Fall fabrics and rawhide bone for Mr. Bones.

Ya, we believe you Chele, thousands wouldn't! :lol:

Lacelady that is beautimous! I love the way the letters are also candles. Makes me feel Christmasy just looking at it, in fact, I feel a carol coming on...

No-o-el, no-o-el!
No-o-el, no-el! :mrgreen:

Now can I have a mince pie? :D
