Christmas Quilt sneak-peak

Is anyone else out there slightly shocked that we’re half-way through November?? Seriously, how did this happen? Summer feels like yesterday! I still haven’t accepted the fact that I have to sort socks again.

The good news is for once I’m starting Christmas sewing before December. I’ve been collecting some Retro-Christmas fabrics for a few years and have been trying to decide what to do with them.  I finally found the right thing.  Full reveal to come – and possibly kits!

    Oh this is soooo lovely, thank you for the inspiration, as always. But may I ask?? are the centers of your blocks 'charm square-sized'? Just a thought/question. But really it is all your lovely fabrics that really has me reeling!

    cute! and yes, very much sew, I mean so. I wasn't into Halloween this year and we're traveling for Thanksgiving so I don't feel the need to get into it as well. I can't decide whether to pull out the Christmas stuff before or after we leave! I have a few Christmas projects I should have done last year! Go figure

    From this SoCal-lady-who-used-to-live-in-Nebraska, I love the "snow" in this quilt and the old-timey (my timey?) Christmasy look. Such fun!

    I am convinced the month of November is a complete sham. Every. Single. Year. it goes by way too fast and I never know what hit me! I always have all these grandiose ideas of projects to make and then never complete even half of them. At least Thanksgiving isn&#39;t super late this year.<br /><br />And I love that quilt! Retro fabrics are just so darn fun.

    Thanks for all the love!<br /><br />The squares are slightly smaller than Charm Pack size – but you could certainly do something similar with Charm Packs squares.<br /><br />The green snowflake fabric is currently available (yay! don&#39;t you love when that&#39;s the answer!) It&#39;s from the Holiday Happy collection from Lecien – designed by Monica of Happy Zombie fame. Here&#39;s a link: http
