I'm working on a wall hanging for Christmas. (inspired by this quilt) It's really important to me to get it done this week before I decorate for christmas, so I pushed this project in front of a few others I need to get done. But now I've run into a problem. Help!
Going to put this in my living room.
The high heels are mine, then next to me are some manly elf boots for Mr. WendyCity. Then below are little girl elf shoes for my girls. It's about 40" square.
I have the blocks made and edged in red. The rest is just laid out on top so you can see the choices......
Here's choice #1:
and here's choice #2--adding lettering across the middle. I'm not sure what color I'd do it in, maybe the blue snowflake print that's in my skirt, or maybe the white background? I could applique it, or I could monogram it..... monogramming might be easier.......
I'm not sure if I like the lettering since it kind of takes away from the quilt-ness of it.... but I like that it makes it personal to our family. Then again, it's already pretty tailored to our family....
Please weigh in. Lettering or no lettering? Applique or monogram? And what print or what color? Thanks friends!

So it looks like we will have enough people to do both the fall swap and the Christmas swap. But there's still room! So tell your friends and your neighbors, your readers, your lurkers, and all your fellow quilters--you can still sign up by commenting on this post for the fall swap and on this post for the Christmas swap.
As before, I'll post the details on the fall one once we know how many participants there are.

So some of you have asked about a Thanksgiving swap. And I'm game if you are!
(there will definitely be a Christmas one as well. See my next post, ok?)
So... thanksgiving fabrics. How about we generalize this to fall? Fall colors and patterns?
I'm concerned that there won't be enough specifically Thanksgiving fabrics to go around.
So... oranges and greens, browns and deep reds and yellows. Leaves, pumpkins and plaids! hooray!
If you are interested in a Fall square swap, please leave a comment. The details will depend on how many people are interested on this one...... but it will involved blocks, probably in a 6" or 8" size. Mailing date will be around December 8th.

And here's what arrived from Jen. The swirly ghosts are so cute!
Stay tuned for more updates!
