Christmas Lights Flimsy Done!

Here it is!!! I purchased the fabric for the borders on Friday night at Cherished Pieces in Tillsonburg. I washed the fabric this morning and then put the borders on this afternoon. Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville is starting another mystery, Carolina Christmas, this coming weekend which I hope to make. Christmas Lights is the first Quiltville mystery I have ever done. I do not think I will do this next mystery quilt in Christmas colours. I have to take a look at my stash to see what I can come up with...

I just spoke to the long arm quilter and he has time to quilt this quilt next weekend!!! It will be ready for Advent/Christmas! I bought flannel backing for this quilt which I will have to piece early this week. This quilt will probably live on the back of our couch in the family room for the Christmas season--nice to cuddle up in while watching old Christmas movies with my husband and my daughter, when she gets home for the holidays from university.

I finished my Inchie Ornaments for the swap and they will go out in the mail tomorrow to an address in the USA. I will post a picture when I hear that they have arrived at their destination.

Onto the next projects--table runners which will be Christmas gifts, and two placemats for Meals on Wheels--this is an outreach project for the London Friendship Quilters' Guild. I will post pictures when they are done.
