My next Christmas project :)

I stepped into the quilt shop today. Look what I found. Isn't this adorable!
There were a few projects that I wanted to nab, but one at a time. I am trying to not jump ahead of myself. Ya I know nearly impossible.
But my new way of thinking is, I can't buy until I finish a project first. Think it will work? Nah me neither teehee.
Well I was wondering how much this panel was as a price wasn't on it. I have only bough panels from the States, as I couldn't find any in my town. The Halloween panel was $6.95 US. So I knew it would cost a tad more. It was $10.00 plus our 13% tax.
It wasn't until I came home that I noticed that the panel was folded and this is beside Santa and the tree.
Now I wonder what is to be done with the fabric post cards and the diamond shapes. Anyone know?
Today I went out with my SIL and friend Sharon.
We went out for lunch at a new restaurant, 5 Forks. They just finished building the restaurant this month. It was really nice in there. The food was OK. I just ordered the sweet onion chicken sandwich. Like I said it was OK, I was expecting sweet onions but it tasted more like a pesto sauce on it. Which I don't care for.
Then we went to the quilt store, picked up bagels for the girls, and I bought Halloween treats for the trick or treater's. I should hide the treats, because in this house they will disappear like magic.

Hope your Wednesday was a creative one.



  1. The fabric is great! Can't wait to see the quilt.

  2. That is awesome fabric. Diamond shape could be oranment put a backing on and pretty ribbons decorate with buttons, etc. postcard mmm have to think on that.

  3. What a happy surprise that the fabric was folded. I love it when such things happen! Happy quilting! :)

  4. Tracy,
    That fabric is gorgeous. I so badly want to make a Christmas snowman quilt, but to many other things are getting in my way. LOL
    Can't wait to see your finished product.

  5. The fabric quilt panels are great! FYI, Cavenders is a Greek seasoning found in the spice aisle.

  6. You could make a cute pillow with the postcards!

  7. Have no idea what to do with the fabric, because I don't quilt, but I love it!

  13. Those panels are really adorable!

  14. Yes, like the other comments looking forward to seeing the finished project as I have no clue what this quilting thing is all about????

  15. Tracy,

    Love the Santa fabric panel. I used to do a lot more sewing, before I discovered scrapping. I think you could adhere the postcard pieces to an apron or a pillow case to decorate them up. Just an idea.
