I did get this finished over the weekend. I now have nine flimsies that need to be quilted. I’d say that is a pretty good start on having 100 flimsies to justify the cost of getting a long arm quilter.

So far the suggestions for my Christmas quilt are split evenly between getting new fabric and adding strips to the blocks to make them larger. Only one person suggested that I should trim down the sashing pieces to fit the smaller blocks. On the other hand, everyone likes the pointsettia fabric. So do I!! I did see some pointsettia fabric on the website of a local quilt shop that I would consider buying. But I’m not sure when I would get there next. I go to that town often – but DH is usually with me. And we all know that he is NOT going to agree to stop at a fabric store so that I can buy MORE!!!! I’ll have to do the usual practice – buy the fabric, sneak it into the house, pull it out later and say, “Look what I found!” 😉
