Cozy Christmas Quilt Sandwich

This is an accomplishment I can say for certain would not have happened were it not for the monthly goal setting we do at ALYoF! A bit of a scramble over the weekend, but I managed to meet my goal!
Cozy Christmas has a backing, and basting is completed!
All credit goes to Melissa, of Sew BitterSweet Designs, and Shanna, from Fiber of All Sorts for hosting A Lovely Year of Finishes! I set my GOAL and linked my post up (#40) early this month. I have three threads selected for the quilting, however the sandwich is all rolled up. There are a few projects ahead of this one, hopefully I will get to it soon - like before Christmas!
Thank you Melissa and Shanna for keeping us motivated!

Also in the works this week, I am piecing my Christmas Topper for the QAL led by Carole of From My Carolina Home. Initially this was going to be a Mystery QAL, however Carole's followers voted for a reveal. Of course, once I saw what we were to make I began playing with layout options! This first one is according to pattern layout:

Block Option ONE

Block Option TWO

Block Option THREE
I decided not to share with you my final decision! I do hope you won't lose any sleep over this, but it will remain a mystery until I reveal my topper!

I'll be sharing the suspense with Lyn at What a Hoot, for BOM's Away, and with Jen at Quilter in the Closet for Building Blocks Tuesday!


  1. Congrats on your finish. All three layouts are pretty! I'd have a difficult time deciding!

  2. The quilt looks sweet, congrats on your finish. x

  3. Oh I'd say most of the credit for Cozy Christmas reaching this point goes to you Heidi. Glad the ALYoF gals gave you such great motivation! It's really fun to see the backing fabric you chose.

    Love all the block layouts for your Christmas topper!

  4. Haha~! You tease :) That'll be a nice quilt, whichever focus you choose. And HOORAY for Cozy Christmas!!! I'm super eager to see it all finished. I"m running behind on the final gifting quilt work, so it looks like this year's Christmas quilt quilting won't happen until the very very end of the month. Well, it'll be ready for next year! ;D

  5. Love Mr. Mouse. I'm losing sleeppppppppp....grin. I like them all.

  6. It is lovely to see your Cosy Christmas coming together. Good luck with the big finish.
    All very interesting options for your blocks, too.
