Design Wall - Cyber Monday - November 26, 2012

It's bad enough that I am working on the Baltimore Christmas quilt that isn't even finished, but I caved and bought the entire pattern of Audobon's Christmas Quilt. It was the free shipping from AQS today (Cyber Monday) only. I am indeed certifiable.

When I got the latest issue of American Quilter in the mail with the latest catalog with this quilt on it's front, I've been thinking about this quilt. Nope, wasn't gonna do it. For four days I thought and ruminated. Today when I opened my email and AQS was just pushing free shipping at me, well, I just did it. It will definitely be a wall quilt because when it is done, nobody will be using it on the bed. No sir-ee.

Speaking of the Baltimore Christmas Quilt, no progress has been made since the last report. Holidays and life got in the way, doncha know.

It turned cold and there was a spit of snow today. Wished I was at home quilting rather than at work.

Oh, this is such a pretty quilt. I can understand that you wouldn't want it on a bed once you put all the work and time into making it :)

Oh, this is going to be very nice! Sometimes life gets in the way of our hobbies. Stay warm.

If I did applique, I would have caved, too. It's beautiful.
