Christmas Quilt Show

Sew Cal Gal  is hosting a Christmas Quilt Show!






I finally got into my sewing room this weekend and worked on this Christmas quilt that I started LAST Thanksgiving!! I got it all quilted, just need the binding. I even played around with some FMQ.... and added some quilted stars in the border. Don't look too closely, I am still practicing :)  


Close up of the stars I tried....


Enjoy the wonderful Christmas quilts on display at Sew Cal Gal's Blog!! 
Have fun!
(I can not believe how close the holidays are!)
