Last Minute

Nothing like getting down to the last minute.
I had a client that wanted these last minute LSU stockings for Christmas. So I dropped everything and made them Friday night. It is now Sunday night and he hasn't picked them up yet. 
Talk about last minute.
I've also been trying to get a Christmas quilt done for my daughter.
I should have had it done at the beginning of the month so she could use it this year - but that didn't happen. As of right now I'm a little over half way. With any luck I'll have it for Christmas day.

I would like to wish everyone a MERRY CHRSTMAS and Happy New Year.
Thanks for stopping by.

Santa's Rising Sun Quilt tutorial

I have been so consumed with everything lately that I have totally forgotten about my blog.
So sorry.
I have even finished a couple of quilts and passed them on without taking pictures.
Anyway I ran across this on my facebook page and thought I would share with those that haven't seen it.
I love this pattern.
Santa's Rising Sun Quilt

The free tutorial is on victorianaquiltdesigns and I have included it on my tutorials page.
This will be on my to-do list (probably for awhile - such a long list)

Sampler Quilt

I know most samplers are of quilt blocks but this one is a sampler of quilting designs.
The top is just a panel fabric that I used for placement.
I used 4 squares for the quilting block. 
I took a bunch of pictures to get a better view of all the blocks and these were the best.
Not great I know.

I guess instead of a sampler quilt we could call it a lazy quilt. I just have a hard time with log cabins.
I guess we all have one thing we don't really excell at or I should say that we don't like doing.
Log cabins are mine.
