Still Christmas?

I've started my Winter Four Seasons Quilt Swap Quilt. I have high hopes this time that I will hear from either my swap-ee or swap-er.

This quilt needs to be in the mail by January 30. Although the deadline is well after Christmas, I am going with a festive scene. Can you guess what it is?


So far I have used only fabrics from my stash. No purchases necessary! I have fabric for the backing, but I am not sure what I will use for the binding. I wish I had more of the candy stripe!

Friday was an exciting day: my order came from Fat Quarter Shop! Now before you reprimand me on spending willy nilly on fabric, this purchase is a Christmas present from my sister and her family. And I only went 25 cents over my gift certificate. Not bad!

My original order included two yards of clearance fabric (from the Moda Blossom line). I got a call from Kimberly at the store -- the Blossom fabrics are out of stock, but she was willing to send me two yards of any other fabric for the clearance price. Woo Hoo! That's good customer service.

So here is my order:

Two patterns from Pieces from my Heart (Rick Rack and Abby's Room); a Fat Quarter Bundle of Prints Charming's Two Young Street; two yards of Michael Miller's Retro Lolli Dot (my replacement fabric); and a yard of Michael Miller's Sea Monkeys


Now I must get sewing, but tomorrow it is back to work and I am woefully behind. *sigh* Winter Break seems shorter every year!
