Deana: Christmas Blocks done! Yippy!

Isn't it amazing what I can achieve when I am actually home!  After years and years of sitting in a stagnant phase, the blocks are complete for my Christmas Log Cabin.  The newly finished blocks are not yet sewn to the middle so it looks a little off, but it is getting so so close.  I will still have to decide on borders.



I also finished my last receiving blanket last night.  I love crocheting around the edges and the baby is due to arrive within two weeks.

Love the pizzazz in your Christmas quilt! Also really like the crocheted edge on the baby quilt and wondered which stitch you used and what yarn or fabric strips you used to accomplish it. Great finish!!! Thanks for sharing! Warm regards, Jeanne

Hi DQ,
That receiving blanket is so pretty. How wonderful to be SO close to completing your Christmas quilt. You will be snuggling under it this year. Yay you! ~smile~

Your Christmas quilt looks amazing! It will be a real keepsake. That receiving blanket is adorable! What type of yarn did you use for the edge? I don't think I've a receiving blanket finished like that before, and I absolutely love it. --Andrea

What gorgeous quilting as usual. Love the fabrics you chose for the Christmas piece. Love how you crocheted an edging on the baby blanket. Clever!

The quilt is coming together beautifully, and isn't it exciting getting to these finishes? I have really liked the baby quilts you've been putting a crochet edge on. Would you be willing to give an explanation or tutorial of how you do that? I'm not much of a crocheter, but I sure think I could handle that.
