Happy December!

I think it's amazing that I have some holiday sewing to show you and it's only the first of the month!


For a "Traditional Christmas" bitty block (3.5") swap in the Bitty Block Committee on flickr, I made 12 of these little Rudolph blocks. They were mailed out last month and I've also received back several from the other swappers. When the last few get here, I'll be ready to make them into a Christmas mini quilt for decking the halls!

For the KC Modern Quilt Guild Holiday Swap at November's meeting, I created a holiday placemat:


I was inspired by the Modern Quilted Place Mats by Alissa Haight Carlton in the 2010-2011 issue of Quilting Arts Gifts. This is the back of the placemat:


I was really happy when it went home with Angela! She is the sweetest person and is a genius with her quilting designs!

The swap gift I received is from Jaime...


And just how perfect could it be?! Holiday fabric and a pattern for four different sizes of the most darling duffle bags...hmmmm...gift possibilities? Thank you, Jaime!!!

Your placemat is stunning in its simplicity. I greatly admire the Modern Quilts concept - fresh, functional and all those clear colors against the purity of white. Am really liking blogs that don't have zillions of followers and that aren't essentially a front for commercializing one's art/products. Thanks too, for following my blog ;∾)

Happy Holidays!
