Just Checking In

I feel as if my blog is feeling neglected so I will just show you what I've been up to.

My creative mess.  I can't believe I work in this disaster area.  Believe me, I tend to be a neat freak at the office.  

I was working on different projects and skipping back and forth, so I just left everything out.
One of these days I will again see the top of the dining room table.

My Modern Christmas Tree quilt top is finished.  Later tonight I plan to make the sandwich and then get quilting.  I made miniature trees and sewed them as cornerstones.

  I thought about putting in a flange between the border and the tree panel, but I forgot.  Yup, that's what happened.  I had sewn on two borders before I realized.  Now I don't think it would have worked well anyway.  But a flange is on my list to use one of these days.

I've been making postcards and can't show them yet.  

That's it.  This weekend is 
  at Hazel's
It's sure to be fun and with the holidays coming up very soon, we all should be in productive mode.

God Bless You.

Love your Modern Christmas Trees, Joanna - what are your thoughts on quilting? Geometric to match the modern vibe of the quilt, or softer, more traditional to provide a contrast?

Either way, your cute cornerstones are a great addition.

Look forward to the QAL weekend - see you then!

Thru the week my work area is always neat as my SIL and I each clear up at the end of each day. BUT the weekend - disaster. I hope to make Sunday for the X-mas weekend.

Modern isn't really my thing, but I really like that tree! THe cornerstones are a nice touch.

What a beautiful Modern Christmas Tree quilt. I sure hope you will market this design ASAP. Absolutely stunning and I think it would be a very popular design. Love it.

I love your Christmas Trees and especially the little ones growing in the corners!

See you at the weekend at Hazel's for the QAL party.

I love the tree quilt. I'm pleased it's not just me who forgets I was going to add or do something to a quilt.
