Here’s a Christmas quilt you could piece in one afternoon! Maybe you’re glued to the tv watching the ballgames. I am and while I “watch” I sew. Baseball is somewhat slow giving me lots of sewing time.
A reader asked about this quilt several weeks ago and for the life of me I could not remember it. Finally I looked in my Christmas closet and there it was!

I think I should make up a seasonal collection of cards – here’s a new one.
Helen’s gorgeous morning glories!
So go cut some strips and make a quilt today! And don’t forget to send me a picture!
