next project, please?

though i was planning to tackle the center diamond quilt next, the borders need marking and i need space for that so i picked this up instead.  nice to have quilts all basted at the ready!  this one doesn't need marking at all and should be a fairly soon finish.  i'm just quilting down the side of each row and already i have almost finished 4 "lines."  there are a total of 13 rows so that is 26 "lines" so it's coming along fairly quickly.  and what is better than a new christmas quilt?  i had a large collection of christmas fabrics (still do) and tried to use them all in this quilt.  it's a good christmas fabric memory quilt for me.  **** at the same time, i'm assembling a quilt for sandy relief using some luscious batiks and a deep plum accent color.  **** i'm also currently embroiled in a war of words with time warner cable.  our on demand is a sometime thing and it infuriates me.  they continue to advertise it as a real perk of their outrageously expensive service but not for us it seems....the tech is coming again monday for yet another box; this makes about 4 and not sure why this service is so terrible.  i've lived other places and never, ever had this much difficulty with cable before.

  2. Oh, I am jealous of your Christmas quilt! I made 2 Christmas tops this year, but it doesn't look like either one will be quilted in time.
    Your "relief" quilt colors are making my mouth water. Should really brighten someone's day.
    Good luck with your tech. We've had that kind of deal going with out ISP. I'm still bothered by my last conversation with them and that was a couple of weeks ago. Promises, promises, but no action!

  5. Hi Grace, are the shapes made from HST's or are they more diamond shape? I love this quilt. So clean and crisp!
