All done!

I totally finished the quilt for my son and his wife to be.

I did an all over meander, and I even made a couple of pillow cases to go with it.

I am working on a Christmas "BOM" that I am doing at my own pace. I just love this one!!! It came from the Quilter's Newsletter free patterns. Go HERE to see the pattern. It is called Christmas Album.
This is a picture of the finished quilt, not mine though. I have all the blocks fused, but I have decided to make this as a QAYG so when I machine appliqué the pieces, my quilting will be done also.

Aren't the sweaters too cute??!! My background is a very pale green swirl and all of the blocks are done with scraps.

Fall is taking hold quickly, and I, for one, am happy for the cooler temps and also happy to be back in jeans again, lol.

Your quilt and pillowcases are beautiful, Wilma. They will love them : )
Great Christmas quilt pattern. I look forward to seeing the progress.
It's getting cooler here in the NC foothills. Had to pull out my jeans and sweaters.

Well, you just had to show that Christmas quilt, didn't you? And now I just have to make one, too. I think I will do it over the next year rather than try to make it in a hurry for this year. Thanks a lot, Wilma. :-)

Wow, wonderful job on that big quilt. Nice touch in adding the cases. That is a really cute X-mas quilt and I do love those sweater blocks - they would make a cute quilt on their own.

Your quilt is simply elegant. Your son and his wife will love it. I'm with Gari on that Christmas quilt ... you MADE me go find the patterns so I could make one of my own ... one day. In the meantime, i can't wait to see yours.
