WIP Wednesday [Christmas]

I know - it's still October, but Christmas isn't a million miles away - only 56 days in fact! I've been working on Christmassy themed projects today:

I finally got round to attaching the binding to my Christmas Jelly Roll quilt. This is the quilt that beat me last Christmas, but last week I finally got it re-basted and quilted. I resorted to kneeling on the floor to trim this quilt - it's HUGE - 70" x 90"!

I'll have a post in the next couple of days to reveal the finished quilt.




And then I moved on to the advent calendars for my niece and nephew - only 33 days till I need these to be finished! I had a play with the layout.

And I finished embroidering the pockets for the first calendar this evening.

Love the fabrics on your Christmas quilt and it's very tempting to make an advent calendar. I always wanted one as a kiddo! Lucky niece and nephew!

Love the fabrics in your Christmas quilt. I used some of the red lights one in a Christmas quilt last year.
