Ay-Yi-Yi! It’s Christmas!


Well, that tune is playing right now on the iTunes list, and it’s true–no presents yet.  But we’ve started setting out my husband’s nutcracker collection, and pretending that Christmas isn’t 22 DAYS AWAY!!

Quilt Doodles

So in order to really tackle that list of Christmas jobs, I got right to work doodling some quilting ideas on my Santa Quilt mock-ups.  I set the intensity to 50% and print them out, then doodle away.  It’s my map, because I don’t feel uber-confident in the FMQ Skills Department.

I should be joining the crazies at the Mall, but instead I’m listening to Christmas Carols, working on my Santa–my main work in progress.  Besides, the Christmas cards.  And getting the tree.  And cleaning up the house. . .

Like I said: Ay-Yi-Yi, It’s Christmas!!

  1. What a cute quilt, I love the Santa panel. I also appreciate that you showed you tested out your machine quilting first. That’s a good tip I need to try.

  2. I should just say “Ditto” to Shannon. I love the Santa quilt and think the printing and doodling of possible quilting designs–practicing as well as planning them–is a great idea.

  3. Thank you for posting the manner in which you test your quilting ideas. I am going to have to try that. Have fun in whatever you do in the 20 some days until Christmas.
