Been sewing my Christmas Quilt

Today I have been sewing up the blocks for my quilt.

The above photo is of one of the blocks... One of my favourite house blocks

This photo is the blocks on the 'design floor'... not the wall  lol  
the angel is not completed. The above right house is the 'Holly House" another of my favourite blocks in the quilt.

The little hearts is a design I came up a number of months ago.. I was going to use this as my logo but I went for the butterfly instead. These satin stitched hearts will be scattered through out the quilt.

Hexies will probably be scattered throughout the quilt... not the border.. havn't got time to do a border of hexies this time around.. maybe with the next quilt I design. I have some Hollyhock fabric in the stock and I have to make something up with these fabrics.. they are gorgeous!!

I love Christmas Puddings.. I think they are so cute. As some of you know I have a pattern available for Mini Christmas Puds.. so I had to add something like that to my quilt.

And of course some Christmas bells.

So this quilt has all things I love..
Swirls
Hearts
Christmas Puds
Angels
Yoyo's

I hope to get it at least sewn up before I go away on my USA trip. I will send if off to be quilted and then it will be ready when I get back...

You are probably thinking but Lisa you are meant to be opening you website... Hmmm yes ... I am just deciding what to do... open it before I go or when I get back... ?? that's the question

Don't forget the draw for the Tilda book if you 'like' my page on Facebook. I will draw that on Friday 31st.. 
On Friday the 31st I will put up another giveaway for my blog readers... so watch the space for that.

Thank you for your lovely comments in my last post and also my giveaway post.. I have been very busy and unable to answer all my emails... SORRY.

I hope you have all had a great weekend.

Your Christmas quilt is coming along beautifully. I have to say the pudding house is my favourite, though a close second is your holly house!
