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.
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.


  1. TWO beautiful finished projects! Love them both!

  2. 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! : )

  3. HOORAY!!! It always feel so good to finish projects and these are wonderful !!

  4. 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

  5. Your Christmas quilt finished up so beautiful!
    Love that darling Fall wool applique' project too.

  6. I like how you have the Fall blocks displayed on the branch.

  7. 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.

  8. great fall display on the mantel!
    Fun Christmas quilt.

  9. 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!

  10. Christmas Magic! How perfect yours looks! It is darling! And your FALL blocks on a branch are wonderful! So fun to see it all!

  11. Such a cute top! Congrats on the finish!! Love the FALL decor too! Super cute!

  12. miss you blog...have you decided to stop blogging?

  13. Another great Kim D finish. I just received the Little Gatherings book, can't wait to make something in this wonderful book of mini's.

  14. This is beautiful. I'm so happy that you referenced that it was from Kim Diehl's book, Simple Seasons. I can pick it up from my local library through Search Ohio libraries. Yeah! This will be a great project for my to-go bag when I work on things by hand during planning periods at school (I'm a substitute teacher.) Happy 4th of July!
