Missed it by *that* much

So this is post #102. How did I miss #100? I am swamped in preparations for Pattyfair, but I feel a giveaway coming in the next couple of weeks. Stay tuned.

I have officially finished the top of Jaxon's quilt. I had to order more fabric for the backing, I ran a little shy. Then I am able to get it to a machine quilter, if I can find one willing to do it before Christmas.

Here it is in all of its glory:



I didn't brave the crowds of Black Friday this year, but I did head to JoAnn's for an excellent Saturday sale. Interfacing was on deep discount, and I also picked up all this:

Three fat quarter sets (two Christmas and one antique toys), black and white fat quarters with a dash of red, and a few half yards of this cute brown and green line


I also ordered this purse pattern from Nanette, and she included a super cute covered button:



And now every waking hour is being spent on items for Pattyfair. I'm removing everything from my Etsy shop on Friday. Whatever doesn't sell on Saturday will be relisted, with a Christmas sale coming. Here is the start:

16 diapers and wipes cases, all of which need grommets and handles, half of them still need top stitching


I also plan on two blanket sets, and two Christmas blankets. I also need something for the silent auction. Doll quilt?

I did manage to get all the Autumn decorations put away in anticipation for the Christmas decorations, and the holiday movie marathon has begun: so far, a modern favorite of mine, and one of Charlie's favorites.

The quilt looks lovely. If not for the pesky Pacific ocean I would offer to quilt it for you...

That quilt pattern is great. I've saved it on my favourites. I've just found you from Jacquie's blog, so I feel a bit odd asking... but what are the measurements of the blocks? It looks simple, yet so effective with the long strips.
