3 Days Until the New Year!

I hope everyone who celebrates had a Blessed Christmas.

I completed and hung up my Christmas Countdown quilt on Christmas day. I’m happy with it! This was a quilt-along hosted by Helen Godden. If you want to stitch up one, find Helen’s instructions on YouTube.

With Christmas and celebrations, not much sewing happened this past week, as I expected. I did find time to finish the train track border for my grandson’s quilt.

And added one more border of the mottled gray. Tomorrow I hope to get it all sandwiched and ready to quilt. His birthday is January 7th, so that is my goal – have it completed to gift to him on his birthday!

I don’t think my family is doing anything special together for New Year’s Eve. That might mean some sewing time, or reading. I’ll see what mood I’m in that night.

I hope you all have a happy & healthy New Year.

Goodbye 2020!

    Hi Sharon! Wow! You wrapped up the QAL piece so nicely. I love how you chose to finish it off with the rays and the matchstick quilting. Fab.U.lous job on the train tracks. Your grandson is just going to LOVE this piece. I think you’ll have it complete with time to spare. Happy New Year to you and your family. Thanks for linking up. ~smile~ Roseanne

    Great finish on the train quilt top. Press on for the completion. Your quilt along poinsettia is gorgeous. Great job. Did you do it on a domestic machine? Here’s wishing you a happy new year and lots of quilty fun too.
