    Here it is! It passes the "looks good from a galloping horse test" as long as you ride your horse on a dark and rainy night. It's far, far from perfect and you know what? I don't care! I love it.

    Certainly passed my test, and I can't ride a horse. I love the Christmassy Sunbonnet Sue!

    Don't be so hard on yourself. There is nothing wrong with that quilt. Your quilt is one of the prettiest Christmas quilts I have seen in a long time. I love it so if it needs a good home Here I AM!!! :D :D :D

    I really like how you turned 4? fabrics into something so interesting. And all I saw was a really neat Christmas quilt-no mistakes. We really are our own worst enemies when it comes to judging our work. That's why I love this board.

    It looks absolutely perfect to me!!! :thumbup:

    And I think I'm going to copy your idea, and do one too!!! I've got some Christmas fabric, and will just have to squeeze it in between birthday quilts!
    Yours truly came out beautifully!!! :D :D

    Thanks for all your wonderful comments.

    Sharon, I had no pattern and pretty much no clue when I started. I wanted to get it on the fall block swap so I bought Christmas fabric to practice on because it was pretty. I picked out an easy looking block (Mr. Roosevelt's necktie) and started sewing. That went pretty well so I started picking any 12.5 inch block that looked do-able. When it was done, I realized I really didn't have a clue how to quilt it. I saw a Fun and Done video at Bayside quilting and decided to try to turn my traditional pieced blocks into Fun and Done blocks. And there you have it. My Christmas practice quilt. :)
