Christmas Quilt Show 2010

SewCalGal has just started her annual Christmas Quilt Show.  This is my first year to jump in on the action and I am so excited!!  I finished this Christmas Sampler Quilt at the end of August as part of the Simple Sampler Quilt-A-Long with Amy at Amy's Creative Side.  I was so fun to work on 2 different blocks each week for 2 months.  Talk about putting you in the Christmas Spirit all year long!!  I was so happy with the final outcome and it made for a wonderful gift for some very special friends :)  Merry Christmas!!  No click back to the Christmas Quilt Show for some major "merry" surfing.
