Only 372 Sewing Days Until Christmas!

Call me Crazy, I'm starting another Christmas quilt!  I've got plenty of time to get in done for Christmas 2014.


Remember when I showed you this book, Modern Bee, that I found at my local library?  Well, one of the designs kept calling to me.  I could see it in my mind, made from Christmas fabrics from my stash.  Fabric from my stash plus pattern from the library, that's practically a free quilt!



It's this design, called Trellis Crossroads. Only my version might be called Christmas Crossroads.



 
The only snag is that I have a limited amount of time to keep the book. So I have to get cracking!

You gave me my first smile of the day Cathy! I am thinking of starting a Christmas quilt too, and need to be thinking like you do, 372 days til next Christmas! That pattern you chose is very nice. It will be so interesting in the fabric you selected.

I have the same quilt marked as a must make. Such good taste ;0)

That's a great idea! And, pretty fabric choice too!

I had to stop and think when I read the title of your post. Too funny. I'm sitting in my sewing room staring at red and greens myself. 372 days? Good to know!

The last two Christmases I've finished up quilts that I began in the previous December. I like your thinking! Christmas comes every year so eventually something will be done by Christmas!
