My goal was to make at least one Christmas item each month so that when fall came, I wasn't overwhelmed. Well, I finished the wall hanging, two of Allison's Christmas placemats, and three of my Christmas blocks for the exchange. All is well even though we had a real South Dakota blizzard today and it was great impetus to complete something Christmas like. I need to finish the spring placemats for the Minnesota boys tomorrow so that I can mail them later this week.
McCalls magazine has a mystery quilt showcased in this month's magazine. I think I will make the blocks in blue and perhaps use the quilt in our bedroom. I have loads of blue fat quarters but may have to invest in some bigger pieces of something I really love.
