Sew alongs

This is a 8 inch square that will become part of a large quilt in the Temecula Quilt Co. sew along
called count down to Christmas.
Well I did finish this one block, but not a whole quilt, I don't think Amanda Jean will mind if I share it over at Finish it up Friday.

Bonnie Hunter has started her annual holiday sew along, it is called Celtic Solstice but mine will be call Christmas solstice since I will use Christmas colors, still debating if it will be King sized or not :0).
Bonnie is having a linky party so everyone can see what has been done on clue one so far
There are some real fast sewers out there......I am amazed at how much sewing got done over the weekend!  Go have a look :0)

Beth over at" love laugh quilt" is having her annual neighbor gathering, make a house and join the fun :0),
plus make an extra one for charity and Beth will make them into quilts!
I still have some Fall color in the yard.

Plus some blooming camellias!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Doll quilt

G is for Gillian :0), my friends little Granddaughter.

One snuggled baby doll :0).

 Amanda Jean has a cute tutorial for this tiny pillow and more for doll quilts.
Sometimes I just want to make a tiny project and these are perfect for that!
Happy Sewing,
Well I didn't get anything else finished up this week so I'll share this over at Finish it up Friday
with Amanda Jean.  Of course I'd like to be an artist like the girls showing  their amazing work over

Have a good weekend and Happy Sewing,

Stop everything and give it a try.   Happy Sewing, Kim
