Christmas Challenge - Quilt Top


The Christmas Challenge quilt top is completed. The binding will be in green.  I am not sure if I am going to quilt it by machine or by hand ... we'll see.

I am going to make another Christmas Star quilt but this time in Christmas fabrics.  I've ordered a couple.  Their from A Dickens Christmas by Sentimental Studios for Moda. So happen I had this little piece of cross stitch in the 4 1/2" square which will be just perfect.  The design is a freebie by Lizzie Kate

Yesterday's lunch was brown rice with stir fried bok choy with some fried anchovies.  A little too salty, should have gone slow with the anchovies :p

In the process of cutting fabrics for Underground Railroad doll quilt found in Kathleen Tracy's American Doll Quilts book.
