Wall Hanging Finish & Week 3 Stars QAL

I'm completely done with the Christmas wall-hanging kit.
Even though "Christmas Postcards" is only 31x42,
I decided to go ahead and quilt it with the long arm.
What a good way to try out my holly pantograph—
and I think that turned out to be a great choice!

I had a perfect scrap of batting and a perfect Christmas fabric
on hand for the back--too happy to move both of those out.
This small quilt will be donated to a church fundraising event.
I hope to be making several table runners and maybe even a
regular quilt for this event over the next month or so.

The week 3 blocks for the Seeing Stars QAL came out
this morning so of course I jumped right on that
and have them all ready for posting this evening.

This is a stash-only quilt for me but I'm kind of amazed
that my once-large stash (by my standards) of fall fabrics
has dwindled to the point that it's becoming a bit of a challenge to
make my choices for the blocks.  It has been a few years since I've
allowed myself to buy fall fabrics on the Shop Hop but this
October I'll be keeping my eyes out for them once again.

Tomorrow it'll be back to working on the mini blocks.
Happy quilting!
