Christmas Panic All Night Quilting

Last night our guild had a "Christmas Panic All-nighter". It was so much fun! Most of the people cut out around Midnight, but Jean and I lasted until 7:00 in the morning. I won a great door prize from a store just south of us in Mississippi called Sew Susan. It was a kit to make a Christmas Wreath quilt wall-hanging/table topper. I can't wait to start working on it!

While I was at there last night, I got a lot done on my sister's placemats... the tops are done and now I need to birth and quilt them. I hope she likes them!

I also got a kit from Lazy Mazy yesterday. She pre-cuts the fabrics for her kits and she does an amazing job! Think of how much time it saves in making a quilt. Though I have no idea how she manages to find the time to cut everything. And, no, she doesn't have any type of die-cutting machines. She just uses rulers, templates and her rotary cutter...Amazing!

I'm so sorry I missed it, had a family emergency. I can't believed you made the scary placemats didn't you learn anything from Ellie and I. They do look fabulous though. Mine are still hanging on my wall sewing room wall. I'm going to have to check out Lazy Mazy, you know how I love pre-cutting.
