Stitching For Christmas Block

Block 4
I finished the block just in I am ready to trace the one that was posted yesterday. I had a busy week with the quilting classes I teach at the local Community College and waiting for items to be delivered by Lowe's. The flat top range that was to be delivered Thursday morning is not here yet...which is OK... we took the old range out Wednesday afternoon ( NO cooking going on here!!!LOL!!)

Christmas Quilt-a-long & Stitching for Christmas

Block 2 Stitching For Christmas
 While riding to Mt. Airy, I worked on the 2nd block of Stitching For Christmas.  I also called it my Christmas Quiltalong project. There are 7 more weeks of the Stitching For Christmas blocks. I hope I keep up!! I am happy with the results.


I loved the Border of this one.

My husband and I went to the Autumn Leaves Festival this past weekend in Mt. Airy, NC. The weather was beautiful and the crowd was large. Looked at lots of crafts. We always go to the quilt show that is held the same weekend. I could not get great pictures as the space was small.  Of course, I didn't win the raffle quilt! There is a very nice quilt fabric shop in Mt. Airy and I helped the local economy there!! I did work on my Christmas Quilt along project...I haven't taken a pic yet.
