I Know, I Know

We haven't had summer yet but it is not too early to be thinking of making fresh stuff for Christmas.
I shall be making a full size bed quilt as usual . If plans are made too late it turns into a chore .
Because of the rain I have been confined to the house instead of being in the garden .
This morning I was reading a back issue of a House Beautiful magazine dated Dec,. 2007.Of course it contained a lot of Christmas stuff . That is what made me think , confined to the house , root around in the fabric .  Plenty of red, peruse the patchwork books for inspiration .
Yesterday I was finishing a top. Today I shall put it together with it's wadding and backing before playing with ideas for the Christmas quilt .

I totally agree that now is the time to begin Christmas projects, especially larger projects. I would like to make a Christmas Dresden Plate quilt. I have some lovely fabric that has been calling to me. I love red/white quilts, very classic.

I like this quilt very much. It's a departure from your usual style of fabric, which is always fun. Yes, the back could be used for holiday decorating and also Valentine's Day. Truly lovely!
