    It took about a month for me to finish three more of the Nutcracker blocks for Alyssa's quilt. On the Chimney Sweep block, I didn't attach the straw broom to the broom pole because it should extend out onto the sashing.

    Now I'm taking a short recess while I make my blocks for the Santa Claus Swap. Then on to the next three blocks (and as I thought, they aren't becoming easier to applique)! Belles

    I know it will be a fantastic quilt.
    Well annieshane, I didn't complete the Nutcracker Quilt by Christmas, but I have it ready for the long arm quilter and will be able to present it to my DGD for her twelfth birthday on July 1. This fall/winter she will ice skate in the "Nutcracker on Ice" for the 10th year. So, she has been in the production since she was 3 years old....and her two aunts, grandpa and Nana have watched each performance. Belles

    Hope you enjoy the quilt.

    Well that is really something. "Stunning" is a word much overused, but this quilt really deserves it- there is something very powerful about it. Well done on your masterpiece!
