Yikes, seriously -- it's almost Christmas?!
Thanks for the reminder though -- definitely not to early to start thinking about this! I just LOVE how your modern crosses quilt is coming along. And your starflower blocks are even prettier in person - they came in the mail this week, thanks!

Tracey Jacobsen said...

great projects Katie! :)

Love the pressing table...
can't wait to see your modern crosses and solids projects.

I did 4 quilts for Christmas last year... I'm not doing any this year, unless it's for our house (hmmm... maybe I should finish my chubby stars). Since I'll have a 2 month old, I'm not anticipating much sleeping leading up to Christmas though.

That pressing table is just so cute. I need to make one of those for myself! And I love love LOVE the hand-stitching on your modern crosses quilt. That is going to be fabulous. Thanks for linking up to WIP Wednesday. : )
