Christmas Quil Along - Early Evening update

pNow I'm not one to just sew all those blocks together with loads of stopping and starting, personally I love a good leaders and enders project to have on the go at the same time.  I guess it's the thought of getting two quilts for the price of one, so to speak. 

So with that in mind, an after thought I might add, take one great Jelly Roll - Avery from Moda, and an equally fabulous book, and wait to see what I can do with this little lot.  He he!

It's now going surprisingly quick! I'm about half way through piecing the blocks into strips.  And, I can safely say I'm well passed the halfway mark on the quilting front.  In fact, I was when I went back in to it after lunch.  How do I know?  Ah, well that will be the tell tail signs of the fold in the wadding!  It's history, I think I'm 3/4 of the way through the quilt, so there's a good chance it WILL be off the frame tonight!

Have you been over to look at how everyone else is doing?  And have you sent Sue the quiz answers?  I'm still working on that one! 

Oh and before I forget, go say hello to Ali, she's not feeling so hot, she could do with a little cheer!

Happy Quilting ..... til later!

And the sun is shining!

Hmm, I wonder if you're making the same quilt as I am from the book?

Thanks Trudi, I'm not feeling too bad, just keeping fingers crossed that the sore throat doesn't develop into anything more sinister. That's a good book, which page are you working from? Can't wait to see your project!

I love that fabric. I'll be tracking to see how it turns out. I finished my quiz, too. Fun.
