Coming along nicely

I had a good afternoon in my sewing room, and made satisfactory progress on my Christmas quilt.  The magazine instructions were for sixteen blocks, but I've increased mine to twenty-four, so this is only about half of the top.  I'll be doing a bit more with the border than was suggested in the magazine, too, so my quilt will be bigger overall.

It's so nice when everything goes together just right :)

wow, you've really made great progress, I was just looking through that magazine again last night, actually looked through all 3 of them. I love drooling over the homes the photo shoots are in as much as the quilts!
