Hello Everyone,

Perhaps you remember my blog post from last year about the quilt that I was making for my son as a Christmas gift?  Well... if not, click here to see the post.  In the meantime, I had not finished it!!! ACK!  It remained on my design wall until I had to take it down. 

NOW, I am in a rush to finish it for him this Christmas.  Might I add, that he has been NOT so patiently waiting for it.... All year, "Is it done yet?", "When am I getting that quilt?", "Have you been working on that quilt?".  I will tell you it is a good thing he live far from me.... otherwise I think that would have been a daily occurrence... LOL!!!

I am adding sashing to the whole thing!  Yes, that will instantly make it bigger!  But then I found out I still needed to make more blocks.  WHAT?? Yup, just one more row. So I got to it... and with help from my Quilt Inspector Number One... help, really?

Blocks DONE!  Woohoo!

Suffice it to say, I have been working hard to "Get 'er done!"  I am ALMOST there too!  Once the top is done, it will be no problem getting it onto the longarm.  Ooops... I forgot, gotta make the backing first.  That will be a cake walk in comparison to the quilt.  

Colorful cornerstones will make the rest of the quilt POP!  The sheer size of this quilt is unreal. I am making an oversized King.  I want it to be more of a bedspread than just a quilt to cover the mattress. My son is tall and built like a football player, so it needs to cover him through the night and wrap him in hugs from his Mom!

I know a lot of you will ask about the pattern, just click here and read the blog post that I wrote all about it.  I wish I could say it was my pattern, but alas... it is not.  But I LOVE it!!!  Any how... My aim is to have it done for him for this Christmas!  Do you think I can do it??

One more thing, before I go.... Don't forget to watch me this Wednesday on my Watch Me Wednesday show on my Business Facebook page here, 1:30 MST.  I am going to be doing 3 BIG Giveaways to wrap up my holiday giving!!!  Hope you can join in!!!

Until Next Time...
