Last year, while spending a much needed girl weekend in Milwaukee with Sharon, we found Grinch fabric. Of course it has been sitting on the “project to be named later” shelf since then. In a moment of inspiration, I started randomly cutting the panels out. No measuring, no plan other than lets strip piece this sucker.

Two tops later, both are actually quilted and only need the binding sewn on.

Lessons learned.

1) batting has an up and down side. When you put the batting upside down, it is harder to quilt.
2) 40 weight variegated thread is really cool, but with batting and flannel backing, You Will get “pokies”. They stick out and yes they do look annoying
3) even if you think you can finish the quilt with the last bobbin of thread, the damn thing runs out 4 inches from the end and you still have to re-load bobbins
4) you have to listen to Christmas music when quilting Christmas quilts. It’s a rule. That and Harry Connick Jr croons very nicely.

I can’t wait for show and tell tomorrow!!!!!
