Vintage Holiday Christmas Dear Santa Cosmo Cricket lap quilt top

My Vintage Holiday lap quilt is almost finished. It just needs a border, backing, quilting, and binding. Okay, maybe "almost" is a strong word... At any rate, I'm hoping to have pictures tomorrow since we're delivering it to my grandmother on Friday.

So many wonderful things happening in the blogging sphere right now that I can hardly keep up. But here's a sampling...

Rachel of Stitched in Color has A Skill Assignment for us -- such a great post. I can't wait to steal a few minutes of quiet time this weekend to journal about this one myself.

Amy of During Quiet Time is sharing a free pattern for her new Indie Bag. The bag is darling, and I'm still dying to get my hands on some prints from this gorgeous fabric line which is so perfect for fall.

Kelsey Sews

Kelsey of Kelsey Sews wants us all to do the Hustle -- well, sort of. She's organizing the 100 Day Hustle to help us get all our projects done before the first of the new year. I'm excited to be doing a blog post for the event next month, but mostly I'm just paralyzed at the thought that there are only 100 days left in 2012...

If you love English paper piecing, photography, and color palettes, then you must check out Laura's Travelling Pic-Stitch Blog Hop at Quokka Quilts. I've just started working on my stop on the hop for the first week of October, and this looks like it's going to be a fun project.

If you like color palettes but prefer quilts, Dana is holding a Quilt Challenge Throwdown at the Old Red Barn Co. Prizes abound in all of the above events, so be sure to take a peek.

And now with all that in mind, I need to go work on a very long to-do list... 

Happy Wednesday. :)


  1. Thanks for sharing the hustle! I am so in love with this quilt top! I keep wavering on if I should buy that fabric or not and I really think I need to!

  2. Your quilt is adorable. I am so jealous because I only have two square done of mine for the Vintage Holiday Quilt Along! Two squares. I feel guilty. I know you said not to, but hopefully I can get it done before Christmas:)

  3. You really have a quick deadline on that lap quilt. Hope you have time to eat and sleep before Friday. And I am ready to do the hustle. I love lists (and hope to check some things off it).

  4. There is a lot going on! I can't keep up ; )

  5. Did you say only 100 days? that means 99 here in Oz, and what? Christmas, no no nooo! I'm not ready!

  6. thanks for blogging about the quilt throwdown! you are offically entered into the draw for promoting it. Thank you!
