Another One Bites the Dust!

'Christmas Magic'
from Kim Diehl's book,
Simple Seasons.

I can take this one off the WIP list...hooray!
Of course, it is just a flimsy, but in the hands of the quilter.  
When it returns, button embellishments will be added.
I plan to display it on my kitchen table top and cover it with my snowman collection.

And, as always, I did work on something new.
F-A-L-L,
from Heart to Hand.

It currently hangs from the mantel at TOWQS.

I am back working part time at the shoppe, loving every minute of my time with my quilting community.  I'll be teaching an applique series in November, so I am busy preparing the samples for that.  I am also waiting on Lisa Bongean's new book, Little Gatherings, to arrive. Who knows what trouble I will get into once it arrives.

Each of these projects makes my heart flutter! Beautiful work, Cheryl!
Oh, you have Lisa's book coming? I am so jealous. Every time I have planned to order I sit at the computer and get sidetracked. Maybe I will order it now! : )

Beautiful quilt! I would love to work at local quilt shop but at the end of the week not only would there be no paycheck for me--I would owe them money.

Am so looking forward to Lisa's newest latest book

What a great Christmas quilt and doesn't it feel great to get something finished BEFORE the season comes! Doesn't seem to happen often for me. Your Fall blocks are great too.

Your two projects are just breathtaking Cheryl - I love them both! You can never go wrong with a Kim Diehl design - love that vine with the holly & berries! And your fall banner is so rich and tasteful looking! Yay you!
