CHRISTMAS QUILT A LONG Post 1

Photobucket
Yahoo its that time of the month again....CHRISTMAS QUILT A LONG TIME
Today's host is the lovely Hazel from Hazel Quilts
She has all kind of things in store for us today, but make sure you check her site first since I hear she has enforced a dress code! I hear it is fancy dress so I got a few hats ready to wear while I sew

There is a cowboy hat....maybe not dressy enough

Last night we had a risk of frost so maybe a winter hat....hmmm still not fancy enough though

How about this 1950's faux fur hat its warm and stylish...hmm that's a maybe

But wait I found the perfect one my sombrero...Now that will even dress up my pj's...lol

Okay back to sewing now.....lol

Where did I leave off last month....Oh yeah I was working on all those hst's 100 of them to be exact!
Well I ended up getting them all done by the end of the day. 


This week I worked on trimming them all up!!
I decided that I was going to sew a few blocks together each day instead of doing one whole block at a time. First i started on rows 1 and 3

The next day I started on row 2 but didn't take any pictures and today I am working on joing them all together to make my blocks.
This is where I am so far. 3 blocks done and the rest half way there.
I will be updating throughout the day.  Fingers crossed I will have my first layout picture by the end of the day!!

  4. I love the hat you have chosen to wear.

    I can't believe how much progress you've made on your Festive Mystery. The colours are wonderful.
