Wild Air Update . . . .

My Christmas decorating has been put on hold while we work on some home improvements.  This has  given me some sewing time.

All my Wild Air blocks are pieced.  Having everything cut out and ready to go really helped speed things along.

All the fabric is by Jo Morton, mainly from the Annadale family, except for the green toile background fabric.

The home improvements are done for now and I finally got started on my Christmas decorating.  I have no excuse for being so far behind on my shopping, but it is what it is!  Not to freak you out or anything, but Christmas is TWO WEEKS from TODAY!

I sure enjoyed reading what everyone was wishing and hoping for for Christmas, we are an easy group to buy for; give us some time with family and something quilt related and we're happy.  Here are the winners of "The Crumbler", I'm thrilled you love the name too.

Amanda A - who is asking Santa for a lightweight sewing machine to take to quilt group
jmniffer who is asking for "The Crumbler (better take that off the list!)  EQ7 software, and fabric.
Teri at Patchwork Playground who is asking for some quilting books.

Thanks to all for leaving comments and participating in my give-away.

  4. I like how your Wild Air is turning out, the fabric you used in the hourglass blocks really sets off the flying geese blocks. As to Christmas shopping, I thought I had so much time and then here we are, only two weeks to go. My plan is to visit one store every day on my way home from work.

  5. Your Wild Air is gorgeous....you have a lot of flying geese, but I think that is what makes the quilt so stunning!

  6. I love this quilt! Love the flying geese goodness! It's just yummy!

  7. Beautiful quilt! I love Jo's fabrics, too.

  8. It looks so different in those fabrics! I love it! Nice job!

  9. Love this quilt. Flying Geese are one of my favorites. Wishing you a Merry Christmas! Our family is HUGE so we celebrate off-the-main holiday so spouses. Children, grandchildren etc don't have to choose or alternate years... This week-end is our holiday together... Can't wait!
