I Couldn't Stop and Finished the Rows!!!

So yesterday morning I posted some more progress that I had made on my Moda All In A Row Quilt Along Christmas Quilt using Winterberry fabric by Kate and Birdie for Moda .  As soon as I was done posting I was so excited I decided to sneak in a little more piecing time.   And the a little turned into a lot and before you knew it, the kids were coming home from school and I was still in my pj's . . . but . . . my Rows were all finished and sewn together into a quilt top!!!  Yippee!!!  I am so just loving how it all came together!!


The first row I finished up was the Double Star Row by Barbara Brackman.  I just love piecing stars, I think they are my favorite thing to piece!!!  I am wishing I wouldn't have used the holly print in the background as it is reading more green than white, but what ya gonna do.


As soon as I was done with the Double Stars row I moved o to this adorable Snowy Day Row designed by Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs.  I had so much fun appliqueing on those adorable snowman.  And we all know I am not much of a hand stitcher, so I did all of the eyes and nose on my machine a la free motion.   So fun!!


And since I was already in the applique mood, I finished up with the Birdies and Trees row by Corey Yoder of Coriander Quilts.   I just love those little birdies!!  I have wanted to do the multiple free motion outlines on applique for some time that is so popular, and I figured now was the perfect opportunity.  The more I did it, the more I loosened up and stopped stressing about the lines that were stitched a little askew.  And I just love that in this method of stitching, they all look perfectly organic in the finish, so fun!!!

So yippee!!! Finished Rows!!!!  It should be noted that Josie and I did stop for a lunch break somewhere in there.  And my oh my, Josie made a lot of perler bead creations.  Every time I went to the ironing board to press, there was another one waiting to be ironed ;)   Anyhow,  Now the rows are all done and I think I am going to add a border to finish it off and make it a little larger ;)


And that is it for me today ;)  Thank you so much for stopping in today and every day ;)

Have a Happy Quilting Weekend!!!

Linking up this finish to Sarah's and Amanda's ;)

  8. So Pretty! I understand exactly what you mean. Once you get going on a project and just can't stop. I bought the book. I can't start it until I get a few more UFO finishes in the DONE column.

  15. You are done and I haven't even started!! I'm going to have to come over and either tie your hands together so you can't sew or steal the cord to your machine!! :-D It looks so good!! And I've done the PJ's and oops! it's time to pick up the kids thing too!! :-) But I think you are more productive than I am when you do it! Big hugs to you, my friend!!
