Better Under Pressure ...

Hi again ... world's best procrastinator here to share my latest last minute project!  LOL

I've been hemmin' and hawin' about what to make and today it was time to just go for it.  I have two-and-a-half of five projects I'd really like to complete by Christmas done, but we'll see how much I can get done tomorrow!  This is the biggest one in progress ...

My Joy charm pack put to good use after several sketches for the design.

All the blocks are now pieced.  Just have to run over to the shop to get more fabric in the morning - need sashing and borders and backing.

Anyone else crazy enough to try and crank out a quilt between now and Christmas!?  I will just keep telling myself that I just work better under pressure.

Happy Sewing!  :-)


  1. This sounds all too familiar. We must be related!! You WILL get it done, I'm sure. Of course I wouldn't bet on how much sleep you will get between now and Christmas!!

    Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  2. I totally understand! Christmas is all about last minute sewing and quilting...that is what we do! Enjoy, but make sure the Christmas music is cranked up high! Merry Christmas!

  3. I sure hope you get it done but wow that is kinda last minute. I hope those other two projects are small!!

  4. Nothing happened with my Joy this year. =( It's sitting in a pile and I won't be rushing to get it put hopefully next year I'll have a new tree skirt and stockings to match! =)

    Can't wait to see what you make up.

  5. Finished the binding on big project at mid-night last night : ) My next is on design wall calling to me : )
    Merry Christmas

  6. I finished piecing a top together last week and couldn't work on it again till yesterday... But as of about 7:00 p.m. tonight it is FINISHED!!!!! My sister is going to be one surprised sister on Christmas morning!

  7. I think I can, I think I can, I think I've bitten off more than I can chew ... aw well, I've told some people they'll be getting Happy Christmas/Valentine presents :)

  8. I'm cheering you on! I am such a slow quilter that I dream of the day when I can finish one in a weekend. I'd have to be on my super A-game. lol! You're inspiring me though. :)


Thanks for stopping by - we love hearing from you! :-)
