The Christmas Projects Have Begun, Too!

On to my next project.
This is Lynette Jensen's "Star Sled Quilt." 
(more applique!)


Both my sister and I chose a larger print 
than Lynette used in her book Cozy Cabin Quilts.
This complicated the cutting-out process 
but, we survived. 


Mine is definitely Christmas-themed. 
I just love the print--there are even snowmen in 
most of the yards!  So cozy!
  

My MIL loves quilts, neutral colors and Christmas.
The way this is pieced (or not so pieced!) together,
this seems more a blanket than a quilt.  It has
some neutral colors but also those of Christmas.
What do you think?  By the time I quilt it, 
it should have a more quilt-y feel and look...maybe?
Should I give it to the in-laws for Christmas?



My sister chose a more versatile theme--just
a general "winter" print.  I think she has someone
in mind to gift this to for Christmas as well.

My sled quilt is all basted; I have even begun quilting.
But then I noticed an issue with the stitches.
So, off to "doctor" went my sewing machine 
for its put-off-too-long tune-up.
Now there's nothing for me to do but knit...
and go to jury duty this week [shudder].  
Lucky me!
