Update: Blog Hop Giveaway starts Dec 10!

Sorry, I thought it started today but it's tomorrow through Dec 17!  Tomorrow morning, go here Quilting Gallery Blog Hop page to find a list of all the blogs participating in the Christmas Blog Hop Giveaway.  Wait-- don't go there until you register for mine!  I'll be sharing a dozen fat quarters with the winner here. There are lots of different color combinations that I'll be choosing from. These are just right to help you finish out your own STASH when you find you're short of a certain color for that next Scrappy Quilt you're going to make/ And to enter, leave a comment telling me how many projects you have YET TO FINISH between now & Christmas. 
12 Fat Quarters in each package, hand selected for color range. Available for purchase at http://www.pashofaquilter.com/.
 Yesterday, DH (he's such a dear!) got a substitute so I could stay home to put a little speed to finishing up some of the projects I'm committed to before Christmas.  I got TWO completely finished!  One's a T-shirt quilt out of McDonalds shirts, and the other is a lady's very 1st quilt!  I'll need to get permission before posting the T-shirt quilt but I will show you a piece of the border:
See the Golden Arches Supper Club "M" in the border? 
Yes, my arches could use some improvement but I thought it was a cute idea. The McD's fabric just makes it.  Good choice, young lady!

Some months ago, I came across Zentangle which is a method of doodling with pens & paper. It always looks beautiful but I haven't actually drawn any. Take a look at http://www.zentangle.com/ ! Awesome!  So this week I got their newsletter which led to a video showing a shape called Mooka .
The video shows the mookas done in a nesting and I had fun quilting some yesterday.

And then I had great fun doing the swirls in the border! Really fun!
No matter how much fun I have actually DOING the quilting, 
the best part is pulling that quilt off the table and feeling
its weight & body- the quilty part! Trim of the batting & backing edges getting it
ready for binding. Gives a finished look even without the binding.
I have to go back to work at the store today. Drat! Oh well, we wouldn't want to much of a good thing, would we? Besides, I get used to seeing our frequent customers and it's like not getting
to see good friends when we miss being at the store. Yesterday was sure a treat.
Merry Christmas, and don't forget to comment to enter the giveaway!

Love your quilting designs - even the arches.

mahoo said...

I've got at least 3, and maybe 5 (if I'm ambitious) to finish up before Christmas. Cool idea for the McD quilt!

Ana e os Viraventos said...

I still have all the kids christmas gifts and my boys christmas pajamas to make!

Pattilou said...

I've got an old Christmas Wall Hanging I'd like to finish, but we're getting new flooring in my sewing room and I'm betting, I'll be cleaning up and throwing away some clutter in order to get ready for the installation!

Michell said...

I've got about 5. Be lucky if I get them done

Lucija said...

Only 2 more to go. Thanks for the giveaway!

gill said...

Wow! incredible quilting!
I have 3 more presents to finish before Christmas!

quilterinmotion said...

Well, I don't want to brag but yesterday was Finish Up Friday for me. I had three Christmas presents that were weighing heavy on me. I have to get them in the mail!!! So, that was my Friday and I was so thrilled to pull the last one off the sewing machine. Now I can just play with fabric again.

Maria Wallin said...

Wow such gorgeous quilting!

I have at least 3 but preferably 10 projects to finish before Christmas. Yes I'm insane and very much last minute XD

iluvmybugs said...

Melinda said...

Luckily only two are needed by Christmas but that still leaves a pile!

Lee Ann said...

I don't have any projects that must be completed by Christmas. But then, I rarely do quilting/crafting for gifts. I finished a quilt LAST year for my Mother two days before Christmas. Talk about getting it close! LOL. That is why it is rare that I do projects for holiday or birthday gifts. I do them for "just because" gifts. :-)

Laurel said...

i have two that have to get finished, and a dozen little ones that are milling around in my head!

erica said...

I have a long list and I am slowly crossing things off realizing that there is no way I will get them all done before christmas

Jody said...

I don't know how long my list is, it's better that way right now :) I have finished 7 projects though, so there is that. Love your quilting.

Mommarock said...

I have all of my shopping done except for my son who is coming home from the military. I'd like to get him some clothes to wear, but I have no idea what size to get for him.. I always have quilting to keep me busy until Christmas finally get's here... I can't wait to see my son!!

There's a rag quilt for the newly weds, an iPad case and some small change bags made from zippers for my girlfriends. so a total of six items. Rag quilt just needs six rows to stitch together, iPad case needs binding and the strap and the zipper bags are on the drawing board.

Believe it or not I think I'm up to date. I do have a hand quilting project on the go, but am not stressing about getting it finished before Christmas. If it gets done, it gets done.

How's that for finishing the year!

I have to finish both these projects by Dec. 14th, as I'm having surgery on the 15th and will most likely be out of commission for a bit :(

Zentangle has inspired me to do some really neat drawings that I plan on making into a quilt when I have several to start with. I'll have to check out their site, I'd love to see the videos. Your quilting looks really nice, I love the McDonald's fabrics. I'd be afraid I'd always think about Big Macs if I had it around though:) Have a great week.

Making 3 quilts for Christmas: a queen sized and 2 full sized. Queen is done, labeled and bound; will finish the quilting on 2 today, and start binding tomorrow. Top #3 is done and ready to load on my long arm as soon as #2 is offloaded. #2 is custom with rulers so taking longer. #3 will be a panto, that will be fast. I should make the deadline!

Sharon Pernes said...

I have given up on trying to finish any more Holiday projects (I just had surgery and it kinda changed my plans).

Sandra said...

I am working on my last UFO quilt. It is queen-sized, done in white, purple and blue. I just have to decide on the border. This is my goal. Just to finish this one quilt, which I have, but still need to add the border. I have enjoyed your blog. Of course there is next year. Still, I could add your FQ to my stash and make another queen-sized scrappy quilt - for me. Every quilter needs fabric in her life - so do I. Thank for a fun week. You will have a lot of new friends. Happy Holidays.

Nice quilt!
I love those nice looking fabri-packages...
OH yes - my arches are in need of some help too... but - I'm afraid partaking of the BIG M - will only make them fall further from the yummy's in my tummy...
I guess I could make better munching choices - they do have wraps and such - Huh?
Thank you for the chance to win :)
I hope you and yours have a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!
and
remember the reason for the season.

Beautiful quilting! Thanks for your generous giveaway. I want to finish a quilt by the end of the year yet have severely injured my back and cannot. I hope I can get to quilting soon.

Beautiful quilting! Blogger crashed on me so am starting again. I have one quilt that wished to finish by year end. But alas, injured my back and cannot. Hope to start again in 2012. Thanks for the lovely giveaway.

I am just starting out, so I don't have anything to finish before Christmas (this year, that is!).

Thanks so much for this opportunity to win this giveaway of goodies and have a wonderful weekend!

Thank you for the chance to win your generous giveaway. I have 3 table runners that I'd like to get finished before Christmas. If you were to ask me to say the number of total unfinished projects that need to be done anytime of the year I wouldn't tell just like I wouldn't tell my age, lol. Your quilting is gorgeous! I can't even do decent quilting on a regular sewing machine.

Thank you for such a fabulous giveaway!

I have 3 more projects to finish before Santa comes so I better get to getting!

Love the arches fabric in the border of that t-shirt quilt. Hope you get permission to show the whole thing!

Only 2 more to go...but they are big ones...need to quilt a top for my "adopted" daughter and I found a beautiful sewing box from India that I am redoing for my LQS owner who gives me so much all year long. Thanks for being so generous. Happy Holidays.

Michele said...

I don't have any projects at all to finish before the big day. Why? Because I didn't start any. LOL With us on vacation last week and both kiddos birthdays happening in the 2 weeks before Christmas, there was no way I could do any holiday projects this year.

I have many UFOs in the works but none to finish before Christmas. I decided not to tax myself this year...although i wanted to make a quilt for my neighbor; my husband talked me out of it! I'd love to be included in your giveaway.

I have two quilts left to get bound in a week--should be able to make it! As soon as I'm done visiting blogs for the shop hop, I'll head up to my sewing room to get to work. Enjoyed reading your blog and looking at the eye candy. Thanks for the opportunity!

Thanks for a chance to win some beautiful fabric.
Thanks,

I'm in pretty good shape having only 2 more quilts to sandwich together and quilt up. Then again, I wish I had done more handmade gifts this year, so i guess that isn't so much "pretty good shape". But hey, there is always 2012 :) Merry Christmas from norther Maryland!

I don't have anything I must finish, but have a baby quilt I would like to finish. Your peaks of quilts are beautiful.

Cindy said...

I have 4 projects that should be finished before Christmas! The sad thing is I don't know that any of them will get done....ack!! Thanks for the opportunity!!

I gave up on finishing a couple of quilts before Christmas. I did finish my smaller projects though.
