Another Block Ready

Well, I had a busy but fun day today. I taught a Machine Quilting Class and a BB Bag Class today at a LQS today. I really enjoy teaching. One of my students, Jean, told me that she reads my blog. Hi Jean!

Tonight I fused down another block for my Christmas quilt. The tree is made up of 1 1/2" strips of fabric sewn together. This means I have 5 ready for applique and 6 more to go. Yeah! I'm getting there slowly but surely!

I plan on putting the "Monster" back in the living room again soon. I have to admit I have not missed it hanging around my living room this past month, but I would like to get it out of the frame! If you are a new reader of my blog and are wondering what in the world I am talking about you can read one of my past posts about it here. I put my Christmas decorations away earlier then usual so that I could be ready to bring the "Monster" back out of hiding. Maybe tomorrow?

Great block Marilyn, but oh that monster, is just stunning.

LOL Linda was so impressed with that monster, she e-mailed me to make sure I read your blog and had seen it. I can not WAIT for the monster to return to your living room!!!

Jessica said...

I find it humerous still that it is called a monster! Look out Marilyn! There is a monster in your closet!!!

While Christmas decorations are beautiful, it always feels great to put them away, especially if you are making room for a beautiful monster!

I can't wait to see this one done, I think it might be my favorite one so far.

Oh, Marilyn, I Lo-o-o-ve your "Monster"!!!!! *LOL*
It's so classic and beautiful.
I also love your Christmas tree. I never seen this kind of pieced tree before and Oh, Boy, It's very CUTE! Love your tree's snowy background fabric too!

What a fun way to make up a tree. Hope you enjoy having the monster back in the living room . . . I know I would *s*

I like the tree made with all the strips. What a great idea.
I am going to have to go back into you blog a bit and find out what the monster is. I am intrigued.
