Time to finish a Christmas quilt

This will be a record finishing a Christmas quilt the same year I started it. I worked on the quilting for about 3 hours last night. It was below 0 yesterday morning and didn't warm up much all day so it was a good day to rearrange my studio and start quilting. Look what I got in the mail yesterday. These one of a kind fabrics were just too yummy to pass up.
They came from Vicki Welsh's Etsy shop. Click here to go to her site for a lot of eye candy.

Ooo... I can't wait to see your Christmas strips and curves quilt all finished. I am sure it will be beautiful! Aren't Vicki's fabrics just beautiful?

My order from Vicki came yesterday too! I'm sure she chuckled as she boxed up two orders to the same town. My fabrics are just as beautiful as those you received.

Love the christmas quilt. And to start and finish in one year, I'm impressed. I'm quilting on right now that I started at least 3 years ago! Great hand dyes too. I love watching your pieces come to life.

"Christmas is"... seeing that quilt complete. Those fabrics you have chosen just sparkle. I have been enjoying catching up with your past posts. I did not realize how many I missed till I started going backwards. Your photo's, fabrics, quilts and dialog ALWAYS a joy to read and see.

Your Christmas quilt looks amazing! I think I am going to set a record this year for starting and finishing a Christmas project too. Sorry I have not been commenting on your entries lately. My computer crashed. But all is well again and I want to say how much I have enjoyed your photos of your early school years. And also the squirrel pics! Looks just like my bird feeder that my husband assured me was squirrel proof!
