Christmas Quilt Along Party!

Gosh, where did the year go!

Well today Sue, at Quilt Times is hosting the Christmas Quilt Along Party, so I've dug out my party frock, and am going celebrate along with all the other wonderful ladies that have quilted along over the year

Did I make some makes?  You betya!


a couple of notebook covers, one has already been gifted ...


a stack of coasters ... hmm, might have to whip up some more of these!



and a mug rug, again gifted already :)


an experimentation with pincushions and selvedges ... one already gifted ...


mmm, strawberry jam, fresh from the allotment, ready for some Christmas giving  :)


and the quickest quilt ever with Charlie hosting on a Sunday!



a Card wallet ...


lanyard,  hmm again, more on the cards of these ...



and my Sassy Christmas Stars ... still in need of a little border treatment ... 


mmm, medlar jelly ... (aka rotting fruit jelly!)


a cheeky little zippy pouch, gifted already :)

my goodness, I learnt a lot of new things over the year,  and whilst blogger has taken all day to load some of these pics, I'm sitting here watching Strictly, thinking 'Didn't I do well!' 

Don't forget to head on over to Sue's blog to check out the Linky and see what everyone else has been up to over the year. 

Thank you Sue and Cathi for being such wonderful hosts, we couldn't have done all this without you!

Happy Quilting!

I did make a nice tote bag to give as a pressie for a birthday party today but forgot to take a photo - darn it! Will just have to make another I suppose....

Wonderful projects! Adore your scatty stars and "the quickest quilt ever" is stunning. Loved all your small projects as well, and you even had time to make jam! You're wonder woman!
Thanks for sharing!
