Here we go again...

Mrs. Quilty-Claus headed home from a day of shopping, don't tell the mister but there may be some bolts of fabric hidden under that tree...

This is the first block in the "12 Days of Christmas' Sampler QAL from  I could not resist it's cuteness and so here I am in another QAL!  I am going to use my scraps from Kate Spain's 12 Days of Christmas as well as Flurry.  I love this color combo so much!!   I have done the Fat Quarter Shop's Mystery Christmas Quilt BOM from last year and am currently working on the Flurry free quilt pattern from Moda with the presents.  That read and aqua speaks to me...LOUDLY.
This pattern is paper-pieced (aack!) from Julianna of Project Town.  I simplified the pattern a bit to allow for quicker, easier piecing for my version.  You can find the link to this pattern and the 11 others at  The QAL started today and continues until December 1st.

Sorry, not the best picture, but here are my 16 blocks from the Quilt Uber-Fest QAL.  I am leaning toward putting a skinny (1/2 " to 1") red border around them after joining them together...then adding a thick(4 " or so) black and white border around that.

I would like to work in black and white again soon as I enjoyed the play of the patterns in the fabrics against each other a lot in this QAL.

Quilt Along anyone???!!

 Ok, I really am in a few too many of these, but it is so fun to see how everyone interprets the blocks so differently!  The Black, White, and Sometimes Red one is for Quilt Uber Fest found on the blog at

 These started on October 1st and run daily through October 16.  My blocks look a bit different than the patterns...but I am really likin' the graphic looks of them.

The Batik one is for Blogger's BOM which started at the end of September.  It can be found at Canton Village Quilt Works

Of course, to see more of my madness you need to look at my Flickr photostream as I am still doing the Birdie Stitches and the Civil War Quilt BOW along with a few others...

As always, I have justification at the ready..."I am using up my stash..."
